Talked to a friend of mine that lives rural near Morehead City. He said all the small coastal towns in NC are locking down fr
om VA to the SC border. Beaufort, NC, a small town has restricted assess to one way in/one way out. I confirmed this through my son's college roommate, who is from Beaufort, and he said yeah. It is crazy. Carolina Beach is telling residents that rent that they must leave unless they are renting for more than 3 months. The NC coast thrives on weekly rentals during tourist season as a main source of income. I value my friend's point of view. I have known him for 20+ years, a prepper, or as we used to be called , a crazy survivalist nutjob... and he is one of the very few people I would stand shoulder to shoulder with. Both of us agree that we did not see this coming.
One of the odd things he mentioned is that all the shrimping and fishing boats came in early in the week and none of them are going back out. He buys fresh off the boat if he can, but he said when he went Wed. to buy some fresh grouper, the guy, who he knows, said it was all processed and and frozen.
Not normal at all.
