I went to Loblaws to pick up some regular stuff, including toilet paper. People were going crazy, grabbing and piling it in their buggies. I got the last 2 packages. You'd think toilet paper was a cure or something. What a bunch of dodos.

I always stock when things are on sale. London drugs has a poo poo paper promo a while ago. Spend 40 buck on TP and get a $10 gift card. The TP was already on sale + $10 card to buy MORE TP made it heck of a deal....so I'm safe for awhile lol.

I kinda guessed what was going to happen and stocked up on toilet paper and by that I mean I got 1 pkg... Still more than a lot of people at the grocery store. I feel this is all messed up, like toilet paper? really... but I did get it on sale.

Yes, it's ridiculous to be scared... and the media talks about the dead, not the survivors.
Check this link and you will see:
  • Total Deaths: 4,720
  • Total Recovered: 68,324
So way more chance to survive than dying.
Oh and to put corona into perspective do you know that every years:
  • 1,350,000 people die in traffic accidents worldwide
  • 8,000,000 people die from smoking worldwide
But I still see people smoking in their car :D

Virus or not, our home always have extra food and supplies for at least one month. Anything more than that, is excessive in my opinion. :)

Exactly, I didnt stock up because we keep a back up. We live in the county, so if we run short of a can of something for dinner we cant just zip out. Heck we could live out of our freezers for a few months alone lol.

I wandered around last night and toilet paper was out everywhere. Evidently Sobeys went nuts before I got there.
Also I heard people are hoarding bottled water. Imagine you're stuck at home for 2 weeks. Where would you get water from? And don't be tempted to use the distilled stuff, that's for your green buddies.
 
I don’t have school for 2 weeks bc of the virus so I’ll miss our amorphophallus konjac’s bloom...Very sad. I was looking forward to see this rare event, maybe an employee will have a photo to share. Guess I’ll binge watch information videos about this beautiful plant instead
