It seems as if a perfect storm has been brewing and only within weeks, many communities will be undergoing a huge change in their lives. For some, it will be the first time in their lives that they have been subject to the uncertainty and volatility that could be seen in the coming weeks. I have to admit that I was very concerned as I was in the middle of a big change for myself and the family as we were in the process of selling our home and relocating to another. Any additional “hiccups” in our process could have been a disaster which had me at the edge of my seat any sleepless every day. Luckily, we are now past that uncertainty as we are now settled in our new home.

However, change will continues for us and many others in the coming weeks. I have been recommended to stay home for work and my daughter will be also coming come for school this coming week. Travel has been cancelled until further notice and many other normal situations have changed. Routine trips to purchase basic needs have become adventures of random luck to find them. This is not a surprise for many locals here as we are prone to catastrophes like Hurricane which also push many to hoard supplies to prepare for the worst.

Given my experience in these situations of emergencies and my risk management way of life, I started to buy supplies weeks before this had stated to gain traction elsewhere. I was holding off because of the pending move from one home to another but time was becoming a risk so we loaded up on food and supplies about a month ago. As the concerns were delayed, I continued to add to my supply each week as items continued to become available. That continued until this week as my visits to supermarkets and the pharmacy started to show aisles of missing items. While masks and hand sanitizers have been gone for weeks, now basic need items like toilet paper and water were gone or very limited.

Given what I have been seeing this week, I am surely not heading back to any stores soon. Instead, the family is getting ready to stay at home and get used to being around each other most of the time. For us, the benefit of moving into a new home brings the sense of discovery and adventure as we learn are way around the community and the home. We have a great backyard and if the weather continues as it has been, there will be great opportunities to be outdoor in the coming weeks. The facilities are also pretty great but we will probably steer clear of them given the recommendation of “social distancing” that has become prevalent from experts.

We still have a lot to learn with the upcoming challenges. Many are nervous which is understanding given that this is a lot of science that many do not know about. With the amount of inconsistent information available if we are not careful, it will not be surprising if panic sets in although I hope it does not get to that. However, like I normally do with any risk, it is better to be ready and not need it than need it and not be ready. There are many ways this can go but prioritizing the things that are most important is the best approach; keep your families safe.

It is a way to study and see how the masses react in a state of emergency.

We will surely learn from this that we are never truly prepared. I hope we can learn though...

Stay safe and at least you are well prepared.

Our stores are still mainly full for now bar a few days when people went crazy. I'm slowly picking up a bit extra every time to be prepared for this lasting longer than we expect. I've seen how quickly the stores get emptied when people panic but if we all shop sensibly then there is still lots for everybody.

I continue to try to stay at home but the reality is that it continues to be more difficult than expected. Changing routines are always tough and will be a big part of the transition.
