A related question is, did seeing the news in the Capitol cause you to set any previous plans into motion or increase your preparations? In our case, Wednesday happened to be the day my wife was making a trip to the local wholesale club. While she was on the way to the store, the attack happened. I informed her by text, told here to get anything extra she felt would be good to stock up on. A typical wholesale club trip is $200-$250. She came home with $650 in purchases. All of it stuff we normally buy, just extra.
