I think things will get back to normal. I'm starting to see signs of it. There were both Toilet paper and paper towels on the shelf at the Supermarket, the other day and I even found a bottle of Fantastic, so I can continue to keep my kitchen stove grease free.

Once the restrictions are lifted, things will slowly get back to the way they were. The bad part is going to be dealing with the Recession caused by everybody having to stay home.

I don't think that it'll take businesses long to get up and running, I just think it'll take some doing to get people back out to eating/drinking establishments and to go shopping/sight-seeing/traveling. I think we'll still see a lot of social distancing/avoidance, only makes sense.

They have a sense of smell and hearing that we can only marvel at. The lesson here is to send her out FIRST.
Yeah, lesson learned!

It will be interesting to see how it plays out. A concern of mine is that the government has not gotten used to the extra power they've had over the population.

I've given up on trying to ascertain how certain events play out in the economy. Seems there are different forces at work than used to be. With all the QE of the last decade, previously that would have brought on inflation...but this time it didn't.

There are still folks out there not paying much/or any attention to social distancing.

The autopsy on this entire situation is going to be really interesting...and I believe will have a big effect on how folks act.
