I will say one thing about the general chaos that has struck this nation, it is tending to bring out the better side of people (with the exception of the selfish idiots who stripped the shelves bare - you know who you are.) A plethora of posts have popped up on FB that have people offering to pick things up and do errands for those who are safest at home. People are buying gift certificates from small local businesses who have been forced to close - giving them a slim lifeline until the danger is passed. It is heartening. I have started seeds, if for nothing more than to make myself feel more hopeful. I am still commuting to the office, although that will change by the end of the week, I feel. It's a good thing I pack in my lunch, as all restaurants are closed.
