    You can buy tickets - it's all electronic. But the lottery office is closed until further notice. So even if you win, you might be waiting weeks to cash in. Wonder if they will pay interest...........

    So, buy a truck, and then make a cross country trip to a warehouse and load it up with TP.
    My buddy has a nice big shiney Kenworth. Told him he should borrow a 52' van trailer, head to the TP factory and load it up. Set up shop most anywhere like the folks that sell Indian River produce in the summertime and make a freaking killing. Beats hauling potatoes or grain right now.

    Framed the doghouse for the genset, the 3C - 6awg cabtire is here, the transfer sw sub panel is 75% swung over. Going to bird screen the overhangs also for the exhaust even with the front door open.
    Chopped another 5 buckets of kindling so Jaeger can do this....... The last of the burns.

    Not virus related, but it's the end of the month...

    • recharged batteries (mostly 18V drill batteries, that I've used for emergency lighting)
    • replaced water in jugs (old dumped down drain)
    • replaced gasoline in jerry 'cans' (old poured into car tank)

    I need to replace the bulk water I have stored.

    I went through the grocery store today. Not only is everything at superstore restocked, it looks like they put everything that they had run out of previously on sale! Got to love them for that. 2 item max on those items of course.

    So only two more cans of my clam chowder.

    I did buy 2 of the big bags of sugar because I usually do that during a sale, but that doesn't happen in any of the stores that I moved close to normally.

    I loaded up on all the canned fish that I discovered that I liked from my previous expedition to the store. Except for the chipotle tuna, which a few other people seem to have discovered since it was cleaned out.

    TP shelves were empty again. I find that a bit bizarre. There's no threat of shortage and by now everyone must have a bit of a stockpile.

    As near as I can tell, there's no Charmin in Ontario, at least not at a reasonable price or package size. It's made in the USA, and I presume they're not exporting it until Americans have all they want.

    I haven't opened a package yet, but I bought some Cashmire Ultra 3-ply. Lots of that where I food shop these days.
    A friend of mine says there's lots of Cashmire Premium at Costco, limit 2 to 4 per family depending upon the day.

    EDIT: Hmm. Canadian Tire says they have a couple packages. I might go check. The website is probably wrong.

    I went in for some plumbing parts. No Charmin.
