Was in Target yesterday. Store fully stocked of all the usual stuff. I keep hearing about panic buying, but have yet to see it. When the local grocers are out of beans and rice, I'll consider that panic buying.
Eh, I'm too much of a pragmatist for doom and gloom. Mostly, I'm worried about my daughter's daycare closing for any length of time, my wife's job (she interacts with a lot of people), and what a quarantine would look like in Beaverton.
Costco selling out of emergency supplies and TP here. But they do that every hurricane and then when its over try to return it all and get their money back. All the stores are out of masks.
no. If you are home and no one is sick just dont let sick people in and you will be fine. If they are already sick the Heppa filter will probably just blow the viruses around. (studies show it does not help kids with asthma to even clean up enough dust out of the air)Anyone know if running a heppa airfilter in a room with a sick person would help filter or blow crap all over?
with a 3.5% fatality rate with what test have been done, many places quarantining areas,first confirmed case that was a community spread in the US, an ill prepared government. I’d rather prepare for the doom and gloom. All tho I’m just getting extras of stuff that’ll be good for years and stuff that we would use anyways.
Already got a 16. Something about a 20" and getting full velocity seems appealing.why a 20” and not 16”? Or a 10.5” with a can?
Just wondering, since I’m having the same thoughts.
Time to buy then...
Depends on how soon you need access to your money and type of investments. Speaking of 401ks, If you can ride it out, you will be better off when the market recovers than paying penalties or moving it to a stable fund where it will just sit. Trying to time market corrections is not a good strategy and you usually lose out on the upswing.I dunno - this one may hurt a bit.
That makes total sense. I am old so cashed out and am using it up in lieu of going on SS.Depends on how soon you need access to your money and type of investments.

I have 20-25 years until I need my money. I'll let it ride.
