      Now that they've gotten stricter here and forced non-essential stores/businesses to close, the traffic on the roads has finally dropped a bit, but we don't have anything close to the empty streets that I've seen so many pictures of on the 'net. With non-essential store actually closed, the home-improvement stores are totally packed, there doesn't look like there's enough parking at Lowe's. Harbor Freight, where I work is busy too. I noticed this when we went to the grocery to stock up. There was plenty of food if you weren't too picky. No ground beef, eggs, or milk. Plenty of frozen food and bread products. Lots of beef roasts, steaks and pork chops. They have lunch meat, which someone at work said they were out of yesterday. We got lucky and got the last two packages of chicken, we're going to barbeque them tomorrow night. I just can't believe the number of people who suddenly need tools/hardware, they just don't have anywhere else to go and absolutely have to go buy stuff and spread the virus.

        I haven’t seen empty streets anywhere. I see people outside everywhere, but I also see massive awareness about social distancing that wasn’t happening a few days ago.

        I still don’t know how I feel about any of this.
