I don't have a second home within any distance. Just where I live.

I mean leaving and heading to where I think it's safe, hopefully, ahead of the surge so there is such a place.

Where I live, livestock? Huskies? I had forgotten that you're still afraid to identify yourself as Norwegian with your CP ID (but don't hesitate to put it in posts). Explains the year supply of
foods by simply living in a refrigerator. Funny that your mountain area doesn't see fit to make allowances for the crowd who's money they're glad to take by building better medical facilities. Cancun (Mexico) had a tourist area: they redid the entire water system to make sure no further outbreaks occur. Medical facilities (for trauma, in particular) are quite available. They invest in their customers well-being - maybe your Norwegian resort areas should consider the same.

Quite simply, I've coped - for nine straight months - living with just a roof over my head and heat in the winter - and was glad to have it. Electricity was an added plus when it was restored. For what I had, I count myself lucky. I'm not going to do it a second time. Only a fool doesn't know when it's time to move on. Seeing one's home surrounded by (and containing) ocean gives one a very authentic perspective.

There may be no hiding from a pandemic - but utilities and such remain available. In general, I can stay put. As for destructive natural disasters? They are limited in scope. How far inland do you think a hurricane can get this far north, even with climate change? If one doesn't wait until the last minute, an hour or so drive takes one well away from whatever weather happens.
