In no particular order...
- The pilots were getting in some practice this morning (see photo above). I wish I had been able to get some better pictures but you don't really know the planes are right over you until...they are right over you and by then they are going too fast to give you time to get out your camera. Did you know that when these jets fly really low they make the ground vibrate and set off car alarms all over the base?
- We were pleasantly surprised to see that the commissary (military grocery store) was fully stocked, including lots of water, toilet paper, paper towels, etc. It was also nice to see that people weren't buying up everything they could find, it just looked like a normal shopping day with normally calm shoppers.
- Hubby picked up all of his prescriptions without a hitch (I've seen people post online about prescription shortages so this was a good thing).
- I talked to my friend while hubby was getting his prescriptions and she is elbow deep in the coronavirus response and had a very colorful--and definitely NSFW--way of describing the public panic that is going on now. In short, people are way over reacting, her medical providers can't get the supplies they need (like grocery stores, most medical facilities only have a small amount of PPEs like masks on hand because they have "just in time delivery" like everywhere else which works fine until EVERYONE is buying and hoarding masks and such), and they can't get nearly enough test kits, etc. Yikes.
On another note, don't forget to set your clocks forward an hour before you go to bed on Saturday night!
