    For the first time in MANY months, my local Food Lion has tp and pt! I was stunned to see things on that side of the aisle.....wow!

    Carry on......

    Can't store all I have now.....

    I did think of getting one roll of each to put on the mantel in a shadow box with the date on it.....to leave my nieces for their kids one day....to show them what fun times we had!

    Honestly, we’ll all probably look back on this and the paper shortage will be the first thing that comes to mind.

    Apparently the mask mandate in Rock Hill SC caused another run on toilet paper. I was in a shop in Fort Mill, SC that now has a mask mandate. They have a 20 person max requirement. There were 50 people in there and way way more were without masks than with. Warmed my heart.

    Interesting how now there is plenty of tp and hand sanitizer in just about every store that I have been in, Greensboro area. I even found some disinfectant wipes today at Food lion.

    First ammo, the toilet paper. What’s the next panic shortage we should anticipate?

    Well, there are also bicycles being reported as scarce. But, I like your question. What else could be next?

    All my local Harris Teeters have had more TP then you could want to buy the last few weeks. Also all the wipes you want.

    Ammo, components, and revolving stationary have all been in short supply lately and will be so again one of these days. Stock up and keep a supply that will get you through the initial panic. The future is very uncertain, and it is hurricane season. I never ran out but have been mighty glad to see some on the shelves as of late.

    Current shortages are bicycles and coins. I’m also seeing some issues trying to buy low-end laptops for school. Thinking ahead to a fall “2nd wave”, I’ll predict sweat pants, and if schools have any live classes a continuation of Clorox wipes shortages.

    We know where to go for TP in the meantime, though, don't we! Yay!

    I figured it out - Goya food products. My prediction is that the shelves will be cleared of them soon, one way or another.

    That’s what we’ve been setting up for. Extra batteries, top of the canned goods, make sure to have gas cans topped off, chainsaw setup, etc.

    And of course the bar is stocked!

    Disinfectant wipes are gone. Spray disinfectant is scarce. I haven’t been in a store in over a week other than work distributors. Correction they are putting customers stuff outside again.

    They sure were thin on the ground at Jim's yesterday....maybe 10 there?

    (And nothing I really wanted. Well, maybe the G44?)

    Even online at Buds, hardly an AR in stock and the only Glock I saw was the G44 that was available. CRAZY TIMES!
