I got some cat food at the local store yesterday so my life is spared for the time being. There was also a quick trip upriver to get supplies for a friend and I witnessed the results of hoarding.
The IGA had no beef on its meat shelves. The long water aisle in Walmart was empty. Toilet paper was absent everywhere. Luckily I wasn’t looking for any of those things.
The latest rumour is that the border will close in a few hours. This Island is really really good at rumours. 🙂 There will be an announcement this afternoon from Ottawa and it could relate to anything – I guess we’ll find out.
In the meantime, on a positive note, the wildlife is starting to emerge. I’m not going to claim that Spring is here – I know better than that.
Early last week I was driving through the Park and saw hundreds of robins in the woods. I’m told, based on that, to expect one more snow storm and about 2 inches of white stuff.
Sure enough we’re expecting snow tomorrow – followed quickly by a lot of rain.
All in all it’s a good time to take care of indoor chores. Be safe out there!
