Just over a month to go!!!

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

This post isn't really about anything in particular, I just can't believe that there is only about a month to go! Just think, all, if not most, of our questions and concerns will be realized. For me it's almost becoming surreal. Whoever's right on y2k is becoming less of an issue to me, I just find myself getting "antsy", you know like waiting for the doctor or dentist. It will be a relief just to be done with it. Any other thoughts?

I've learned 2 things:

1) A better appreciation for what is really important: Water, food, shelter.

2) "Y2K Pro" is a putz.

I've learned two things:

1.) Andy doesn't show up unless the price of gold goes up.

2.) Nobody that was saying the next stock market crash is going to happen "any day now" (back in October) is still posting here.

I've had some fun and learned a lot from the experience...I have become a licensed ham operator and met a lot of great people....I have spent more time with my family....I have become much more self-reliant...I have learned who my REAL friends are (those who haven't laughed at my y2k concerns- but listened).

Yup, throw in Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, unused vacation days, weekends.

The brass tacks are showing!

I'm becoming increasingly worried about the coming summer with its peak of business failures and shortages, and really freak'in about what 2001 is going to be like, since 2000 will not have been a healthy and normal societal and business preparation for that coming winter. Hang on to any supplies you don't use when the 2000 end of January jolt comes, and replenish it whenever and where ever you can.

Am I ansty? Yes, because I need to know what I'm really dealing with and what I will have to carefully build up. As Westergaard put it so well, "You'll know in 2000 what you need to do to prepare for 2001."

I agree with you Paula. This is a chronic, long term issue. less cushion for 2001 as we have for 2000.

Think... spring harvest... and food supplies summer/fall of 2000.

That... makes me "nervous."

But... Gonna REALLY enjoy this year's holidaze!
