I just wanted to point out...

If 2 years ago I was writing a book about a flu pandemic and said people rushed to the store for TOILET PAPER everyone would have called my book stupid and insane.

Does anyone else remember the great toilet paper crisis of 1973?

Technically, it's not a flu pandemic.
That said...

Cheap almanacs are selling well, though the free Argos catalogues are too shiny.

Look at it this way, in about 6 weeks, the supermarkets will be finally geared up for TP hoarders, and the hoarders will have disappeared. There's going to be a HUGE sale on toilet paper.

THAT'S when I'm going to sweep in and buy a year's supply!

People hoard things at such times because of fear. They can't control events around them but buying up stuff makes them feel like they are in control.

Some of us PLAN for Regional disasters and have supplies to give the infrastructure time to recover (at least, get the light back on).

In New Jersey, my folks had a Winters coal stored (Later it was fuel oil and a Generator to run the boiler burner), and a pantry with a month of canned goods (boring, but starving was not happening)

Here in California, Earthquake preparedness is the big push by local agencies. It can be days before the power/water is restored or roads open (remember the overpasses that dropped and blocked major routes?).

In the Southwest: Tornadoes (whatever happened to Storm Cellars being common?)

And just about everywhere: Wildfires. Sometimes having supplies is not what is needed. Having Exit Plans that take REALITY into consideration (I have been on some of the roads where the Paradise fire was. 20 Miles of narrow roads where 25MPH was speedy.

The bottom line is: Don't count on someone else (not in residence) for immediate help. And remember to rotate out your emergency supplies that have lifetime limits.
