Everything I've read says refined flour is good in a cool, dark place for 1-2 years. I just keep mine in the pantry. I usually bake a loaf of bread every week or two, so a ten pound bag never sits for more than 6 months.

I got humidity where I live, freezer keeps it dry.

I am thinking about the idea of cooking for myself for 3 or 4 weeks without any outside food.  I made a list of more stuff to go get tomorrow.  I probably have enough now, but need to keep it more interesting so it isn't just rice and Mountain House.

I've been doing the same thing with what I have for meat in the freezer, got a list going. Also picked up about 10# of bacon and brats from a meat locker on the way home.

Good. Panic combined with incompetence is exactly what we need.

Mayor London Breed announced Tuesday afternoon that while there haven't been any confirmed cases of the coronavirus disease, COVID-19, in San Francisco so far, the city needs to be prepared in case the virus spreads to the area.

In other words order free gloves and masks for the homeless and get the speech blaming Trump ready
I hope I am exaggerating but probably not by much if I am

SF probably needs to panic. It has a high density population center, high percentage of oriental population and visitors, plenty of human and animal body fluids spread around, fair weather that encourages outdoor social activity, and a strong mindset of "the government will protect me."  On top of that, a large percentage of the population eats out daily and doesn't stock food for more than a few days in their tiny, overpriced apartments.

The same is true of LA, Seattle, Portland, and maybe some of the suburbs.  East coast cities aren't exempt, either.  NY, Boston, DC have similar issues.

Tulane primate center will receive coronavirus samples for vaccine development
Quote
The center's director, Jay Rappaport, said the north shore research facility that's home to several thousand monkeys is well-positioned to find a vaccine for the fast-spreading virus that originated in Wuhan, a city of 11 million in China's Hubei province.


Also some older news from a 1998:

2 Dozen Monkeys Escape From Tulane Center
Quote
Two dozen rhesus monkeys broke out of the Tulane University Regional Primate Center last week and scurried for nearby woods, with workers following to recover them.


So, What is the best caliber to keep on hand for infected monkeys?  
And what if the disease mutates and makes the monkeys really smart?

In our clinics, we have a metal stand in the waiting areas that hold a box of surgical masks, a bottle of hand sanitizer and some signage about covering your cough and notifying the front desk for certain symptoms.  We have now moved those stands to storage: people were coming in off the street, grabbing the box of masks and sanitizer and running out.

In my continued monitoring of price gouging, I saw that people have apparently discovered half-mask respirators. I'm not sure if they understand how most of them are sold. They sell just the respirator, and you buy cartridges separately. Some vendors are still selling the respirator for the 25 or so bucks they're worth, while others are selling respirators with no filters for $100. Filters for them are now approaching the price of the panic-priced paper N95 respirators.

I saw a photo from a San Francisco Home Depot where an Asian guy bought every N95 mask they had. It looked like at least a dozen cases. There is apparently a very profitable black market for Chinese here to buy them up and ship them to China.

Interestingly, nitrile and other exam gloves seem to mostly be normally priced. I saw some $100 boxes, but most of them were reasonably priced in the $15 range. I find that interesting, since hands are such big spreaders of disease. If things were to get bad enough in the US, I'd almost consider wearing gloves to the grocery store more critical than wearing a mask. Put them on in the car, do the shopping, remove them before reentering your car.

I would say to consider just about any personal hygiene product.  Keep yourself in as good a shape as you can so other stuff doesn't drag down your immune system.  Thankfully a lot of those things last a little while.

A few things heard on Fox Business this morning:

Iran is refusing to conduct any quarantine of areas or cities. Flights seem to be going in an out unhindered as well. If the virus spread spikes, it's gonna be third world shitholes that do it.

To go back to my still current belief that panic and emotion will do more harm than the virus regarding the availability of stuff in the US: Amazon, one of the largest retailers in the world, has just told all their sellers to overstock and hoard stuff that they sell to make sure they have sufficient inventory for what? For freakin' Amazon Day in July. When people might have to worry about acquiring staple goods in the present, that's almost criminal.

Trump is going to talk about virus response tonight. His Twitter snippet that I saw makes it look like it will be a "remain calm, all is well" speech. He has asked for $2.5 billion for response. Chuck Schumer immediately put in for $8.5 billion. Pessimistically, I can't help but think Schumer is hoping for things to go bad so the dems can say, "Trump has failed you all!" It seems to me that $2.5 billion is good for now, given that it should be pretty darn easy to increase that quickly if things go bad.

I'd love to see Trump accept that $8.5B and put 5 of it towards the wall.

They're already staying that. Pelosi was front and center croning on about how the money Trump asked for wasn't nearly enough and as a result the 150 million Americans not killed by Republican NRA members will be killed by the CoronaTrumpvirus.

I'd like to see the line items for the dem funding ask. Reading some of my old CA news sources, I see a big progressive talking point right now is virus racism and xenophobia, so I'm wondering how many of the billions would go to "diversity enforcement" versus medical and infrastructure response.

Be sure your facial hair is compatible with a mask. This is one of the reasons I have been wearing a narrow goatee for years.  I have to do the annual fit testing for N95, plus when I was in Fire/EMS, the Scott Air Pak had to seal.

PS: According to that graphic, I actually have a 'circle beard'. But it is nonetheless narrow and does not interfere with the N95.
