Striking Early

We went to Reno as soon as we could this afternoon. We want to be fully stocked to last as long as we can after Thanksgiving for anything except maybe milk and some other perishables, and we can do without that if necessary. I have Friday off and could do a full-day trip then, but we're concerned that the longer we wait, the busier the stores will get. So we went today to get the largest amounts of stuff. If we think it prudent, we'll go again on Friday for the smaller shops and maybe to get even more stuff from the bigger stores. If it looks too busy on Friday, we'll skip it. We're worried that way too many people are going to participate in super-spreading events on Thanksgiving. We are not.
