But bottled water? I mean, as a general prep thing, sure, you should keep some on hand. But it's not something you need for Corona-chan.
My favoured food to stock up on is microwave rice, because it's fairly cheap and keeps for nearly a year and at a pinch you don't even need to heat it up. The shelves were packed full of it even with the locusts running amok in the TP and bottled water aisles.

I went out Saturday to the big Target. It was well-stocked and surprisingly empty of people and even the checker commented on that - especially given it was a payday Saturday. But now I have a great big thing of loo roll (which will last me a year) and tissues and enough laundry detergent.
My corona plan is to just stay home. I presume if it hits my region the university will just close for a couple weeks and I can sit in my sewing room and make quilt tops and listen to stuff on my smartphone.
I cancelled my spring break trip to go see my mom, out of an abundance of caution but also because we're in position-interviewing crunch time and I will be putting in a string of 14 hour days next week and I think rather than traveling I will just need to sleep through spring break.
And I'd feel absolutely horrible if I caught it and passed it to My Only Remaining Parent.

The thing I'm watching for is news about the homeless population in San Francisco, the closest thing we have to a third-world sewer. If the thousands of drug addicts eating out of Chinatown dumpsters, sleeping on cardboard, and crapping on the sidewalk aren't dropping like flies, the rest of us will be fine.

Also, you have spam.

Also, you have spam.Yes. I try to be prepared. I have quite a bit of it. It keeps forever after all and is energy dense.
