That same thing happened here. DH was like "Quit checking those boards. You are making your self crazy." Then he came home with a bunch of stuff from Home Depot "just in case". He was also awfully happy to pack those bleach wipes I picked up this afternoon for his flight tomorrow. I stocked up on NyQuil and Mucinex, too. Enough so that the GM had to come over and do a personal ID check even though the checker was over 21. (I got 2 of everything we might need. Hardly stocking up to make meth, but I guess it is an unusual purchase. If he looked closer, he would have seen that I also had several boxes of tissue, pepto, saltine crackers and ginger ale. Cuz Pukey McPukster is in the house.Great minds think alike. At first, when I showed my hubby the thread on here and told him about he warnings, he got upset and said' "This is what happens when you dive in too deep. You become afraid!" Then he watched Fox News for a bit and started looking for the best way to store water. We went out and bought a water purification filter for campers (we have a pool where we can get the water) and we also bought TP, tissues, PB, coffee and dry creamer and other various foods. Coffee is VERY important.
I also stocked up on Nyquil, cough medicine and Mucinex since this virus has cold symptoms. I have already purchased, vitamin, D and C, oregano oil capsules and colloidal silver to beef up our immune system. Unlike Y2 K where we spent too much money on stuff we would never eat, we purchased things that will get eaten, crisis or not. I feel better now too. We do still have 2 young adult children here that we would like to protect.
What we need is some spring days so we can open all the windows and get some fresh air in here.
