Default Time for Snow Birds to go home

I think it's time for snow birds and spring breakers and visitors to head home. They are hoarding supplies to take back home. They have told me so in the grocery stores. They are sucking up our resources and possibly getting this virus and then staying here and spreading it. In normal times we would welcome these people but not this year.

I sincerely hope you aren't serious.

Since many owners are snowflakes, birds, your mentality of telling people to leave is appalling.

Have you spoken to your children, or clergy, that may help bring you back to a not so scary thoughts

English, I agree. I don’t know where OP was coming from, but if serious, he/she couldn’t be more incorrect IMHO. Some renters will be going home in about a week and others in April and end of May. Some own and some rent but snowbirds keep taxes and amenities lower for those that are here full-time. They are just as “entitled” as any...

Wow! I had no idea that supplies are more plentiful here than up north. I think that is good news.

Perhaps we could require them to wear a big scarlet "S" as well...…..

All I can say is thank goodness full-time residents are not hoarding.

Soo wrong, and too everyone who thinks everything circles around $$, without your health your life is worthless--I'm very fortunate financially speaking

Getting ready to sit put till the fall, as long as the liquor stores stay open we'll be fine--saving lots of $$, by not participating in my favorite pastime--which is quite expensive

Wow! You had better put in a call to the governor to see if he could ask the national guard to set up checkpoints on all the state borders and check all exiting vehicles for toilet paper, disinfecting wipes, ground beef, chicken, sour cream, canned beans and sliced bread. Then return them to all the grocery stores in and around the greater villages area. Would that be pleasing to you?

So your saying that they should head north and possibly spread the virus at rest areas, gas stations, eating establishments that might be open and then to the residents of their hometowns? Unbelievable post.

I did get a smile out of imagining seasonal residents stopping in the supermarket aisles to notify the OP that they're taking their rationed amount of items back north with them!

Ha ha! When we were snowbirds it was all we could do to fit all our suitcases, big dog, bird-in-cage, etc., in the car to go home, much less add in 50 rolls of toilet paper! That's just hilarious.
