SITREP: a small town in Piedmont NC
Gas prices seem to have stabilized in the $3.10-$3.30 range. Two stations out of gas; one of them for 36+ hours. Other stations seem to be getting deliveries, so not sure what to make of it.
Despite the governor’s request to limit unnecessary driving, vehicle traffic seems to be about normal.
No obvious signs of panic, but gas prices, Katrina and New Orleans seem to be the topics of the day. I have personally spoken to several people who are thinking out loud–could this happen here, what would we need to do to be prepared, how would we defend ourselves. As usual, I’m my helpful self to those folks. No time like the present to get folks interested in survival.
