People are so afraid in my neighborhood that I think most of them won't go outside at all. Also, going to the store feels strange. It is hard to explain but, you can feel the fear in the air. My wife is on the front lines of this mess as a RN at the Hospital.
How are the grocery stores doing keeping thing stocked at Food Lion in Moneta and Kroger at Westlake? It's still a ways out, but since our lake house can't be rented we're thinking about trying to come down the latter half of May if things are starting to calm down a bit and at least take advantage of being at home in a gorgeous place that we can enjoy a bit more than walking our neighborhood here in Texas.
Still in the very early planning stages but before we even get too far into thinking we can do it I wanted to hear from some people that are around SML and see how things are.
From the looks of things around the lake, most people came to their vacation/second homes to ride this out, likely to get away from the urban areas in the northeast.
Grocery stores are OK one day, and nearly barren of the essentials the next day. It’s been a mild struggle to find everything we need/want on a weekly basis. Even doing Kroger click list has been challenging.
I think Kroger is limiting customers. Food lion seems to be a better place to shop now, because they don’t have the traffic Kroger does. But that is changing too.
We'll keep planning for now and try and get another update here in a few weeks. I just read last night that several states are starting to re-open businesses this weekend. We'll see what sort of impact that has on the virus spread.
