    In a free market if there is a demand, and a dollar to be made, there will typically be a supply.

    Corona Just Killed My Job

    I'll keep you in my thoughts. My wife is out of work because of this as well.

    Liberty vs. Safety

    Any erosion of liberty is horrible.

    The COVID thread

    No. I'm on a well so storage is directly in my feed line. It's constantly refreshed. If worse comes to worse, I have a deep well piston that I can hand pump with, too. If it gets worse than worse, I have a life filter good for about 3 years for a family of four and a beaver pond out back. They say you should have 1 gallon per person per day. If you have a 55 gallon drum, and it's clean, you put can tap water in it with no treatment. You should just rotate it every so often. To purify water, they suggest 1/4 teaspoon of bleach per gallon, then let it sit before drinking it. To pre-treat water so you don't have to rotate as often, they say 1/8 teaspoon per gallon. Treating with bleach typically means your water will smell and taste like bleach. I suppose that's better than smelling and tasting like death. Personally, if I wanted to store 55 gallons of water all the time "just in case" I'd probably not treat it, sterilize the storage, then rotate it more often. You can always boil before use if needed. If you're paying for city water/sewage, that will be extra. You could always fill it to get through this crisis, then look for inline storage after. I chose my home to avoid all that, though.

    "Because the Australian Federal Police, the Australian Border Force, New South Wales Police, Victorian Police and elsewhere are onto this at the moment, and this is part of our demand problems. "We will come down like a tonne of bricks on those individuals." Mr Dutton said anyone who has photos, car registration details or any other evidence of people acting in such a way to contact Crimestoppers. Incidentally, Minister Dutton has been in hospital for about the last ten days with corona virus. Doesn't apply to me. My preps were in place LONG before this boogaloo.

    They said not to bother bringing my two in for testing unless I really wanted to.

    Sister Grunt is down. Twin Grunt #1 and I are taking bets on who will be the last man standing. I'm pretty confident my odds are good.

    Right now he's outside boiling Maple sap. He's not on his death bed yet. Thanks, though.

    Military just cancelled all domestic travel and some of us are now in a "work remote" status. I have one kid at home with a fever and sore throat.

    We had three people sent home because they were sick. The rest of us are still showing up. We are starting a pool to see who the last person standing is.

    2020 General Conference Via Technology, ONLY!

    I would be disappointed in that without further revelation. I understand separating the wheat, but I believe the continued guidance and interaction with our fellow saints is healthy for our testimonies. It's too easy for all but the strongest of us to slip away after a lengthy absence, or if there is no expectation to attend. It also makes it difficult to function as a church without those present and helping.
