Thanks for the article . I live near Seattle and I still see the panic first hand . What made Covid 19 so powerful was not the strength but the speed . In less than 500 hours the virus was in all 50 states and a few far flung territories. In that 500 hours our nation has gone from steak to Spam and most don’t even know it yet . The foolhardy belief that the USA will bounce back in a hurry is not found in reality .
My advice I gave to my adult children is try and make time your friend . Only time and lots of it will determine how well you endure this situation .

MacHam, I agree with your last paragraph.

And, I have tended to agree with this sentence: “The foolhardy belief that the USA will bounce back in a hurry is not found in reality .”

And yet, after reading the article about Butte, Montana: Butte in 1918: [2], I wonder. The 1918-19 pandemic was followed by the roaring twenties. Granted, the farm economy was in a depression during that time and, of course, we have many difference from then to now.

So, I am still prepping for collapse and holding out hope that it won’t happen.

Carry on, in grace

The economic fundamentals are much different, today. Presently, the U.S. is buried under a mountain of debt, and we are long overdue for a recession.
