There hasn't been a lot about it on the news yet but I'm sure there will be more as the time nears.
As for the whole country suffering? I don't see how this will cause any suffering. There has been plenty of warning so people can fill their autos and their pantrys. We keep ours full anyway.
Those without jobs have been suffering all this time. I'm hoping this will get the governments attention, but I don't have any faith left in our government.
I came into this world with nothing and I still have most of it.
