Enjoy it while you can. Yosemite, Kings and another are all shutdown. Expect state and local parks begin to shut as well. Police are beginning crackdown on gatherings in NJ and LA. I suspect domestic travel restrictions will be coming.

The reaction to this thing ain't gonna lighten up anytime soon. My guess is every state will be on total lockdown just like Italy, inside of 2 weeks. 3, tops.

People don't understand that govt. Lockdowns are incremental, systematic, like a flight of stairs. One step at a time. When the previous step failed to yeild results, on to the next.

This time 2 or 3 weeks from now, we will be shocked at how much different life is. Get you your houses in order while you can.

Stay safe.


+10 on that. All my TC'ing will be in my backyard this year but my backyard is 43 acres big.

Now, it we can just fine enough TP, I'll be tickled.

Mine also, but my backyard is almost 4 million acres of Wilderness within 50 miles of home called the Selway-Bitteroot/Frank Church and Gospel Hump Wildernesses.

These certainly are uncertain times with those that say the sky is falling to those that say it is all hype..Somewhere in between we have a major happening effecting us all and it most likely will get worse before it gets better..

I feel fortunate to live in a small community right now without any chain stores and only two small locally owned grocery stores.

This is my front yard.
We enjoy hiking with dogs several times a week, now doing it every day, since we don't go out anywhere.
But it is getting crowded.
On 1 hr walk we can meet 2 more walking parties.
But they don't go into higher elevations, where we prefer.
Next week I will have to go and buy milk & veggies. Even almost all grocery places are open, I heard about long waiting lines. I wonder how do they observe 6 foot spacing?

Interesting how that is different from what the CDC is reporting at link.

At the time of this posting:

Total cases 33,404
Deaths 400

Not trying to minimize or maximize the issue. Just pointing out that different sources are presenting different data.

If you are close enough to smell their farts, you are too close...social distancing...

I will wager the damage being caused to the mental health of our nation will outweigh the damage caused by the virus. TURN OFF the 24x7 COVID-TV channel!

- You know what you need to do to help prevent the spread.
- You know the TP shortage is manufactured hype, we aren't really out of TP.
- Take this time to get some stuff done. I waxed my truck & camper this past weekend.
- Be smart. A two hour wait for bread is too long - it means you are shopping at the wrong time/location.
- Be part of the solution, and don't be a victim.

Watching COVID-TV 24x7 isn't going to change your personal situation at all.

Yes, this is disruptive. Yes, every one of us has had some sort of change or problem because of this. Humanity in general and our nation in particular has survived far worse. Compared to what my grandparents went through, this is a day at Disneyland.

Our economy was fundamentally sound going in to this. We weren't waiting for the 'bubble to burst'. The whole financial world is on sale right now, and the smart money will snatch it up.

Take food and restaurants for example. One week ago, a certain percentage of our food supply was in warehouses ready to meet demand at restaurants. That had to be shifted over to going to service demand at grocery stores. Of course they will be out of a few things during the transition!! Watch when the 'no dining out' orders are lifted - restaurants will be in short supply of food as the demand shifts again. They will have a week of Friday nights as everyone goes out to eat, and will recovery very quickly.

It is not TEOTWAWKI. Seriously, turn off the dang 24x7 COVID-TV. It is not helping you.

This too shall pass.

I agree with a lot of what you wrote, especially about the damage that we are creating. However, I don't agree that we will 'recovery very quickly'. Fantastic article three days ago... it's been a great teaching piece especially for the younger ones who through no fault of their own, can't quite grasp the road we're on.

The Atlantic, This Is Not a Recession. It’s an Ice Age.

No, I don't think it's going to be quick. Last week, guru's were warning of 20% unemployment. Now, we're hearing 30%. It's a big deal. Personally, I find our value system a bit over the edge for the possible return, but make no mistake, as a nation, world, we're choosing a path. I pray I'm wrong.

Didn't think you were minimizing and the contradictory data is a real problem.

On the site I linked there's a table of individual states with a link to the source of that data. Most are individual state sites. If you note, at the bottom of the CDC page it says-
CDC wrote:

In the event of a discrepancy between CDC cases and cases reported by state and local public health officials, data reported by states should be considered the most up to date.

That would explain it.
