Yup! I'm thankful I live in a county with 1 stoplight. I wouldn't know the difference except for the news. But I'm staying home to be sure. Just doing service calls, mailing out parts.
Looks like I'll have to cancel several trips I was hoping to do.

I work at an Ivy League institution of higher learning.  All of the undergraduate students as well as the graduate students have been told to go home for the semester.  All courses will be taught via remote learning.  Ninety nine percent of the faculty are not here, and their secretaries are working from home.  Our boss called a team meeting yesterday morning and assured us that we , my 3 co-workers and I are essentially personnel, we service the buildings systems.  It's a building of incredible activity by now but with essentially no one here, it's one spooky place to work.   The one thing my co-workers and I are getting a kick out of is the panic buying of all the toilet paper.  Man, this thing is a respiratory disease.  Imagine if the next pandemic strikes and it causes the diarrhea.  What will they do, buy nasal spray?  One positive thing is, it's much easier getting to and from work without all of the traffic to contend with.  Roger

Planting tine is quickly coming up anyways and it always seems like that’s a self imposed quarantine or social distancing from “normal” folk.

Yes we got 40 or so trees to plant this year. I have to use a shovel sad to say ground is to wet for my bobcat. I tried driving out back once years ago and I had to leave it out back for 2 months until it dried up. I am going to plant a little bigger garden now that I am laid-off until this passes, construction is a no go right now so the mill is shut down.

I think the best way to sum up 2020 would be the year where what is to be will be and what aint to be just might happen!
Seems like so far it has

Makes my grandma's stories of growing up during the blackouts of WWII seem a little more real.
