I remember thinking, this is gonna be like the zombie apocalypse. I was actually pretty... I don't know, I don't wanna say frightened or scared, 'cause that's pretty strong, but I was worried, I was worried what that would mean... I wasn't quite sure how I should prepare for it, but I know that we went to Walmart about three times before everything did get shut down in mid-late March. We just prepared with dry goods, canned foods, pasta, things that would last a long time. So my initial impression was worry, but then also a plan of action, just trying to stay on top of it.
