    I noticed that today also.
    Avery and watauga county have both issued statements asking people who do not live here year round to stay away.
    They asked that all short term rentals be canceled.

    But I bet the Floridians still be coming.....

    "Don't worry, he's not a real doctor."

    Aparebntly this is a real thing, they were talking about it on the news today. Lots of NY etc folks have freaked out and left for (1) the mountains and (2) Florida where they have second homes. Of course, just bringing it with them into rural communities.
    NY Gov said flat out, please stay home, and FL governor said the same thing, in even less nice words.

    Ashe co supposed to be doing the same thing. Hopefully Alleghany where I live will too. But I have already seen numerous cubans from Miami and tags from NY, CT, NJ. We complained about them and half backs from FL all year, now they are going to be more than a nuisance.

    The lack of test keeps the number of reported cases low and skews the percentage of the deaths to reported cases.

    They didn't do a very good job, they could drop 10 million and not make a dent.

    Had a drunken ramble with facts, got halfway through and said fuck it.

    Tl/dr: IMO China lied, its spread worse than they’re saying, big companies are losing money and don’t want that which is putting pressure on The Trump during an election year, communist news network (CNN) along with others is on the “tell the people what they want to hear” wagon, Democrats are there to opposing and saying whatever he’s done has been garbage and not enough.

    Lack of tests +media hype means the hospitals are afraid they would be even more slammed if legit numbers were released.

    People are eat up with dumbass currently, if you don’t believe that, go buy or find some shit paper. The same people freaking out and going store to store are mostly the same people not sheltering in place and going out to get their nails and hair done Karen and bitching about not being able to go to Starbucks.

    Also, spring break re-jects have spread it to their small town/rural area colleges just like the parents are doing with New York/Florida/Carolina mountains. Not realizing they’ve brought it with them to an area that can barely deal with what they have, not to mention the influx.

    New York is screwed, New Orleans is screwed, west coast? Yup. A couple of weeks you’ll see the peak.

    The rest of us small towns and rural areas, we’ll see the growth from cities near us and it’ll be showing up here in larger number in 4-6 weeks.

    ended up drunken ramble again anyways. It’s Hillary’s fault, Epstein didn’t kill himself, Obama bankrupted the US, China started it, Russia speaks in hieroglyphics, and the Queen will see the return of the dinosaurs after this.

    Can you possibly give me the date when people weren't " eat up with dumbass "?
    If my memory serves, it would have to be pre 1979.

    We need to let the people from the north and florida know the truth about the current situation in the mountains of NC!

    We are currently overrun with an outbreak of brain eating zombies, butt probing aliens and bigfoots throwing big ass rocks.

    I drove by wildcat lake yesterday, and sure enough, the loch nest monster was drinking a beer on the dock.

    All hell has broken loose up here....

    this really isnt a shocker. the US has around 1/2 as many people as the whole of Europe. most of the stats ive seen comparing effected rate i haven't seen a per capita infection rate. but then again that wouldn't push views or put people in fear. im not saying its not bad or going to get worse but everyone is trying to compare apples to oranges to bananas.

    Anyone that is looking at buying a new car/truck or used that’s a notable price, it’s getting ready to be the right time to buy if you can.

    I’ve been looking for a JLUR the last month. I’m too cheap to pay full price. So, just the last couple days I’ve had past dealers blow up my phone and email wanting to make a deal. I mean, new 2020 JLURs are being offered for nearly the same as a 2 year old used buyback with 10k miles.

    I think I’ll hold off a few weeks and see where it goes. I feel the dealers will have so much new and nearly new surplus without anyone to buy they will slash prices pretty good.

    I mean, Michigan has now shut down car sales, so they can’t do paperwork or anything. No shipping either. So the need for dealers to sell quick before that happens in their state is apparent.
