    Seems to be effecting almost everything now. Where I work orders are up as buyers are looking for USA manufacturers. I live in Dayton Ohio, and this morning I stopped at the grocery store. They were out of toilet paper, sanitizer and bottled water. (We don't even have a local case of coronavirus at the moment.)

    Saw an interesting youtube about a possible cure. It's technical, but shows promise. Looks like they have been using it in China and South Korea, maybe other countries.

    Hopefully they’ll lock down a vaccine. I’m sure they’re all elbows trying to get it.

    So far, no documented cases in Alabama as of this morning. I’ve heard rumors there’s been at least one that was transferred to a hospital in a neighboring state.

    Some of the shelves (bathroom tissue, sanitizer, etc) are empty already. Can’t imagine what it’ll look like when the first case is actually announced.

    If you are in a panic about paper products and cleaners, the hardware stores have plenty. If you really need paper towels, go to the paint section, they got lots of rags in a box (which are like super duper paper towels). I have a couple of them as I'm doing a painting project. What my wife suggested is that I need to figure out a project in the house, buy up stuff and then if we get quarantined, then I got lots to do. With that, a painting project and some door replacements. I also figured if hand sanitizer was in short supply, all of those cans of brake clean on the shelf might be suffice. To top it off, I loaded up on some post oak, a brisket and ribs. So, I can quarantine myself on the back deck while I'm doing some smoking.

    Definitely need to keep your wife away from my wife. Don’t need to give her any ideas.

    It just hit me.... Paul was quarantined. That explains the disappearance.

    That’s some serious TP. In my delinquent teens, I could have rolled a whole neighborhood with that.

    I found some options for you:
    https://www.mcmaster.com/toilet-paper-dispensers
    https://www.uline.com/BL_2329/Tork-Mini-Jumbo-Bath-Tissue-Dispenser

    Quit messing around with consumer products, go industrial!
    This one would be good as it holds two rolls and has a keyed lock (keep TP thieves from stealing it):

    Then for the TP, imagine being prepped with six 4000 ft rolls, for a total of 24,000 ft of TP!
