  1. 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 .

    1. 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: https://mtstandard.com/news/local/a-look-back-at-butte-during-spanish-flu-pandemic/article_97f57c42-5a7d-533a-89c2-97680c94bf7f.html#utm_source=mtstandard.com&utm_campaign=%2Fnewsletter-templates%2Fdaily-headlines&utm_medium=PostUp&utm_content=97d30fed12ee81fc23c73fdbc9203930e4daf338, 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
