I guess things have gone as well for me as I could reasonably expect. I have enough food on hand for probably a month or two although it's not going to be keto friendly. The stores aren't really out of any foodstuffs that I normally buy. The pasta

I reevaluated my stored items. The food would probably last for 2 months, 3 months if I stretch it a little. Articles for hygene would have lasted for 3 weeks to half a year depending on the item (TP reached the restock level). There was no real shor

I know some of our army were specifically trained for driving tanker lorries, specifically for delivering oxygen to hospitals. And hospitals are normally plumbed for delivering oxygen, similar to how water is distributed thoughout.

I learned that in general for this particular drill we were okay. For us TP and paper towels were never an issue. Food was fine and we were able to restock as the stores recovered from the initial panic shopping. We had health items like vitamins

More food. I have a month or so worth at all times. More entertainment for very bored kids. More Xanax for me as I stay HOME with bored kids, sigh.

Thanks for all the great input. I did not imagine that there are small folding scalpel handles available. Keeping one blade extra sharp from my EDC knives might be doable. Evaluating that now.

Is there anything that you have learned from this current drill? Is there something that you wish you had done differently? The only thing I wish I had done differently is to include more cheese. Jeanette Isabelle
