I’m just hopeful at this point that people don’t abandon the safeguards as soon as the curve starts to dip and fire it back up again. 

it hit 70 degrees in Chicago today. people out everywhere. these orders don't make it past April without some law enforcement to back it up or a huge spike in cases that scares everyone again.

I dried a pair of her jeans once early in our marriage. I haven't been trusted to do anything but my own laundry in 17 years. 

I’ve dried her jeans, broken a plate, and refused to buy sugarless snacks at the store. I’m ridding myself of chores one “accident” at a time.

I posted a link to a story a few days ago that reported over 200k people had flown from China to the US just before travel from China was banned. That was only for direct flights. It didn’t not count any people on transfer flights. Detroit was one of the major destinations as was New York and Seattle.
Also lotsa Canadians travel to and fro Detroit.

I've been using them and they've been great in all categories. The prices are fair too- comparable to grocery store prices.

Do you buy anything but produce?  How are their prices on things like chicken breasts, cheese, etc.?

Jesus, what’s making this so bad in Detroit/Michigan? Seems like NYC and New Orleans both make some sense from a density and public events stand point, but it’s unclear why it’s so bad there. 

They had a massive concert in late March headlined by Eminem featuring Kid Rock, Ted Nugent and Bob Seger.

This seems on track for the most part. Please report posts that have people just throwing shit at each other and I'll split those to a new thread to keep this clean. Being an asshole isn't against the rules, but for the sake of readability it's best to separate that out of this thread. 

What happened to this? Only reason I considered reporting such was because I thought you requested us to do so..

In a thread that’s supposed to be informative, it sure is good to have the same handful of assholes consistently derail the thread and invoke CR towards other posters who aren’t being political. I could have sworn that was against the rules from a prior post of yours, but I guess y’all are more looking at rep than actual post content for moderating. 
 

I guess since it’s the self-appointed thread police it’s all fine?

Is CTJ being an asshole? yeah. Is Jimmy being an asshole? Yeah. Are either of them Trolling? not that I can see. Calling someone a CR retard who posts a lot in CR is...not against the rules either, although it's not a good way to make friends and influence people.

Most everyone is an asshole, it's kinda what makes the board funny and stuff. What doesn't make it fun is when people start going after each other on purpose or just being annoying by tunneling on what a few or one poster is saying/replying. Use the ignore feature and move on. I'm not handing out bans for shit that has never been against the rules.

If the thread gets full on derka'd because of some side drama I usually split it off, although I have been swamped at work and honestly haven't had time to deal with it, plus by the time I finish this post another 2 fucking pages will be added to the thread so it's kinda like no harm no foul at this point.

I guess our purchaser kept on placing orders when our orders went unfilled? I talked to another manager who got the same delivery today at his branch. Our lobby won't be open for months so I'm telling my employees to take what they want home.

Or, 16+ the number of the 56 that were taken off. It’s total vents in use, right?  So to the extreme, of all 56 recovered/died then all 72 would be new. 

I don't think it's current total number in use. I think it's total number of COVID confirmed that have ever been put on a ventilator.

It's going to be interesting to see how load shapes change during the summer if this is still going on. Some residential load could be offset by a reduction in commercial load, but would it be enough?

 

Load this summer will be down if the C&I doesn't come back to near capacity/forecast, and it almost surely doesn't matter how heavily the resi-side uses. 

March, April, and potentially May of 2020 will be the highest residential loads, for those months, in ERCOT history. It still won't make a dent with so much C&I knocked out. It would be a great time to be a residential-oriented REP in Texas because power costs are so low and usage is so high. It's a dream scenario but for the moratorium on disconnects, which will lead to higher bad debt than forecasted for most of the electricity businesses. So, you really want to be a resi-based REP with a great average utility score within your base right now. 

For customers, everyone should prepare for significantly higher than expected electricity bills for the next 3 months of usage. March and April usage, along with November, are the lowest residential power usage periods in ERCOT, so most people are subconsciously going to be expecting a certain bill range and will be surprised when it's higher. This will lead to oddly unseasonal switching for lower prices. January, June-Sept see 75% of the switches in Texas for various established REPs, so this will be another unintended consequence that I'm betting will be studied due to this virus' impact on society.  

So watch your cornhole on your power bill and don't be afraid to switch if you're current with what you owe. There will probably amnesty granted on early termination fees if the PUC hears enough about it in this bizarre time. Also, with suppressed C&I usage, pricing on the grid could be shockingly low for the summer period if that's the case. Could actually be a boon for customers who switch during a seasonally regular period when their contract comes up. I'm guessing strips of summer power have come off of ridiculous forward-pricing in dramatic ways because of this. If they haven't, the traders are just holding off until someone capitulates and undercuts the market in order to shed position.

This would be helpful to confirm. I read your posts about the Dallas stuff and scratch my head about that question. Is it cumulative or current? Hope how you're reading it is correct.

I've bought items from all categories they offer (various meats, cheese, bread, rice, pasta, snack food, coffee, butter, nuts, even some lamb tamales last week) and the prices are negligibly more or less than the grocery store depending on the item and week. A friend of mine did a comparison on his last delivery vs. HEB prices and for the same order IF was $5 less (the order had items across all of their categories). The produce is great too.

That's good to hear.  Hope they let me expand my order when the prices & options are revealed on Thursday.

Worldometer recap


+4000 cases but still under 30k for second straight day

Deaths didn’t jump either up about 50

Lot of states must’ve had tests back logged from the weekend -Louisiana Fla Mass Connecticut had like 600 or more cases than yesterday


Still can’t believe how well Texas and Cali are doing. 500 deaths between the top 2 populated states

Cali got ahead of it early. The number of cases appears to be dropping, but testing remains minimal, so who knows?

I could buy 4 weeks of groceries for my family of 5, but would no doubt be accused of hoarding. 

But seriously, the amount of food 3 boys go through.  You can only buy so much meat and milk at a time. 

Yep. Even with just a small family, there's only so much you can buy in a trip and only so much that will fit in the refrigerator.
