Some shelves are light and there's no hand sanitizer but that's about it.

    My most recent data point was yesterday so maybe today is bedlam.
    I think locally, the situation was exacerbated by everyone returning from spring break in the last day or so. (They've extended it another two weeks until the end of March, but all the coastal timeshares, etc. are committed to later spring breakers.) But when they see low stock on shelves, they panic. Another potential contributor is that so many cases end up here locally due to military hospitals being a primary source of quarantined travelers. And the final thing I will say, is that we are good at this. Hurricanes can often head this way and occasionally hit us, so people are used to this to some extent.

    Grandfather isn't going to make it through the night. Prayers and vibes needed for my family tonight. My dad's having a rough day and I'm too far away to be there for him. Rough feeling.

    Thanks everyone. I'm currently at Camp Lejeune visiting my brother. He is very upset. The DOD is suspending leave for all employees due to COVID-19, so it's doubtful he will even be able to make the funeral. This is awful all around.

    Your story is upsetting. Lots of people are in very uncomfortable situations right now, but your family is definitely in a bad spot.

    I owe you a beer when we get to the other side of... all this.

    Thinking of you matty.
    Nothing incites bodily violence quicker than a Duke fan turning in your direction and saying 'scoreboard.'

    Thanks for the prayers.

    When I have more time, I'll post a longer update. The short update for now is that my grandfather is (hopefully) going to be OK. He did not have a stroke, but has a bad infection and pneumonia.

    Wow. That's amazing news. Hope he isn't in the hospital very long.

    Whew, good to hear but obviously still serious issues to be taken care of. Hopefully, he is getting some good care now and recovering quickly. I went through something similar while visiting my parents in January.

    Two other people in a seating area of 200. Yes, we are keeping our distance.
