I bugged out of Albuquerque and moved waaay up North. After a busy week of unloading, working locum tenens at the small hospital, and setting up my
apartment, I went to the local Walmart ( the only one for about 100 miles ) and meat market to build up supplies. What I found at Walmart was
disconcerting. I expected Sunday afternoon to be slow. But instead, the place was pretty busy. Alot of people were using 2 carts and were filling them
up. This built up a sense of urgency for me and as I wound through the isles to the back, I was not alone in picking up staples. The rice and beans
were limited to smaller packages. I got one of the last large bags of powdered milk. Toilet paper, detergent, and laundry soap were well stocked.
When I turned the corner to get to the dairy product, milk, butter, and eggs were running low. Yogurt, cottage cheese, and cream product were almost
empty. This was at the end of my grocery shopping (I don't buy Wally mystery meat), so I stopped and took a picture.
The conversations at the check-out counter were surprising. People were talking about stocking up due to the "virus."
Here is my tub that I use to bring up my food to my apartment.

I'm sure that all other Walmarts remain well stocked, and this was just a temporary weekend shortage.
But from what I have seen, I feel better safe than sorry.
