Doom alert. Stage 1. Gov't agencies in Oregon panic buying fuel
Across the highway from my employer is a commercial fueling station. Several local government agencies use the place to fuel their equipment regularly.

Yesterday, I noticed a line of school buses filling up during the day. All of them. About 24. This was after dropping off the kids at school, not on Sundays like they usually do. And never all the buses at once.

Today it was the city and county vehicles. All of them. They were filling up the trucks and the backhoes, loaders, that were being pulled on trailers. And jobsite fuel trailers too. A big line of them.

Was going to post this right after work, and on my way home I see a loaded military fuel tanker, no doubt on its way to the local National Guard armory nearby.

What's going on? Anyone know?

Very interesting... wonder what they know. Obviously something is up. Could be a minor thing or something more worrying.

I don't think it's because of the expected rise in fuel prices. Since when does any government agency try to save taxpayers money?

Anyone notice anything unusual anywhere else regarding government agencies, city, county, state or federal?

As a former blue collar worker for the government, surely the grunts don't know. Same with their foremen. Unless it's an unlawful order, you just do what you're told.

Gonna text my son. He works private security at the Port of Portland navigation office.

My guess is that the caravan from Honduras will be flown in overnight under the cover of darkness, and may already have been flown in to Canada near the border. They now need the vehicles to transport them across Washington state to temporary facilities until they are given more permanent housing. If kids in your district are on Spring Break, the school buses provide a good cover. There were reports of similar tactics used during the "Syrian refugee crisis," where they were reportedly flown in on UPS flights and boarded onto various guarded bus transports. There was video showing these buses moving these people into the country in the middle of the night to avoid the cameras and eyes of protestors trying to stop them from coming in. Can't find those videos anymore, however, as they appear to have all been removed from YouTube.

OP here.
It's Sunday now, and all is quiet on the Western front.
A double tanker was refilling the underground tanks at the gov't refueling station yesterday, otherwise everything seems normal.

Don't know what that was all about...

Well under an emergency the military and law enforcement and emergency services gets first dibs. And with JIT then inventory is artificially low. So when the first demand is larger than normal, the problem tends to cascade.

The worse case scenario this time of year is low levels of chlorine for water treatment. When cold then coal for utilities. Chlorine inventory is typically two weeks max so that can shut a city down.
