The only void I can think of is a rechargeable, LED "camping lantern". I've been searching for one, can't yet find one to my liking. We'll make do. The bulk of the tasks above were completed a long, long time ago. It's the Girl Scout in me.
Grocery stores are a zoo, gas lines spill out onto the street that enters into the driveway to the stations. It's crazy. I had little to do, spent about an hour finishing what needed to be done.
I am ready.
