I live in Cheyenne, WY.
Winters are vicious. Not necessarily the snow, but incessant, never ending 40-mph winds and bone-chilling windchill.
So I do stock up several months worth of toilet paper, paper towels and other non-perishable stuff. (Total permanent household of 3).
I also have a freezer which I always keep half full of TV dinners and stuff, for when nobody feels like cooking.
And frankly, I do this even in summer time, just so I don’t have to go to the store unless I feel like it.
Anyone stock up just cuz, and not because they’re expecting a pandemic?
