Ordered 100 3M M95 Masks and I picked up three boxes of Nitril gloves from Harbor Freight.

Will tell the wife they are for work.

Out of an abundance of caution, or precaution, or whatever it is, I went to the local dollar store and got preps to add to the preps I already have. We should be good for quite a while if the worst scenario happens.

Personally, I think it's much worse than China is letting on. And the molecular biologist in me (outdated as my experience might be) tells me this could well be a biological warfare pathogen that has escaped containment and not the bat to snake to human route as we are being told.

Of course, I am probably wrong as other pathogens have made the leap from one species to another. But in my mind, it's a 50/50 chance either way, and those are odds that I want to hedge in my favor. So I bought what I could, and I think I did well.

The border is too porous here in Texas, and there are too many illegals who make perfect vectors coming and going.

Went and dug up the remainder of the thorny blackberry bushes that I'd started on Monday. Worked out well...the lady who I got them from got rid of the thorny blackberries, only leaving thornless for her, while I got the thorny blackberry bushes that I wanted. Win-win. Once we have the orchard fencing re-done, the blackberry bushes will be planted around the perimeter of it.

Made a vet appointment for the new kitty who adopted us. We are pretty sure he was "dumped". He'll get a health check and his shots, then we'll set up an appointment for him to be neutered.

Love my HVY duty TILT trailer.
Sure makes it easy, simple, quick to unload firewood, dirt, gravel, rock, etc.

I spent the weekend working on the shed. Nothing exciting or awe inspiring. Just more slow, steady progress.

Had an UN-prep today. One of the freezers in the outbuilding died (apparently some time ago, given the mold that was starting to grow .) It was mostly vegetables that I had raised, harvested, and frozen; and fruit. Only a small amount of meat products (most of the meats are kept in the chest freezer. What was in that freezer was mostly "overflow" - things I hadn't had room for in the chest freezer previously) and a few ancient frozen dinners. Fortunately most things were double bagged. Spent a good part of the morning getting everything tossed. The freezer will end up being hauled to the dump. It probably dates from the 80's (was in the trashed out house that was original to the property) and will get replaced eventually.

After clearing that mess out, husband and I worked on the fencing for the dog yard. Added a gate off the corner, then used T-Posts and cattle panels to bring it out another 5 feet, down to where we connected it to the corral panels for the orchard. Once we had that done, we disconnected the "no climb" horse wire that was the original fencing from the t-posts and got them pulled, then rolled up the wire, tossed it over the new fencing, and attached it to the outside of the cattle panels, so daughter's obnoxious dog (who likes to run over to harass my dogs) can't stick her head through to "fence fight". Dogs now have an additional 5' x 48' to run in.

I just remembered I bought a box of 230 NITRILE X-L Gloves before all this Coronavirus took over the news.

My other preps I want to get more of and will be filled in tomorrow. Various Clorox disinfecting wipes, more face masks, bleach, Fels-Naptha bars, Olive Oil, Vinegars, pasta, canned veggies, flour. And the "Work In Progress" continues.......

Probably reached for my pack of smokes 200 times since I got up at 5am. Only time I had a pack in my hand was when i first got up, emptied ash trays and took the mostly full pack that was sitting there and threw it in the wood stove.

Been a long morning, but sometimes there is more to prepping than piling up gear and food.

NIOSH-certified N95 masks are sold out on Amazon, but the local Home Depot still had some so I bought a few boxes and some more nitrile gloves. We had a potential coronavirus case right up the road from me, but it was just ruled out.

Also found this website this morning, graphically displaying the geographic location and scale of each cluster of confirmed cases. Intel is the best prep....

Ordered a couple of MOLLE dog harnesses and some pouches. My current one cannot latch pouches on and I figure they can carry some food if needed (though in hindsight - I imagine they'd not move and be sniffing the others pack the whole damn time - we'll see).

Probably your smartest prep you can do for a healthy life and I would not want to have any kind of compromised lungs when/if this Wuhan virus starts to prevail here .
