Ol’ Remus at the Woodpile Report is back after the passing of his wife with a short post and it contains some pithy wisdom:
These are your choices. They always were and they always will be.
Prepare when no one else is preparing.
Panic when everyone else is panicking.
Got food? Ammo? Meds? It’s too late now to prepare adequately for the pandemic much less the impending derailment of civilization itself. Preppers were calmly topping off their stashes in early January, at regular prices, in any quantity with lots-o’-choices. They saw the foreshadow of this emergency and acted appropriately. Prepping always looks crazy until the rug gets pulled. Paranoia is a survival tool, panic is not.
Not much you can add to that. Choose wisely, after the China virus you might not be so lucky when the next crisis comes and it will come.
