I've had every project until September Cancel now.

That's $225,000 Of lost Revenue Just for my projects. (Not all that goes to me by a long shot as I often have 2-4 of us on a show at a time, plus shows i'm not doing I send others to do)

This is crippling for my industry at the moment.

My sister works for a company that supplies brake fuel lines to the auto industry. She heard a rumor today that Honda has shut down manufacturing, will the big 3 follow if its true?

I heard this morning that there was ONE new case overnight, bringing the total to 54 here in Michigan. I don't want to sound overly optimistic, but I am glad to hear it wasn't 10, 20, 30 more.

We've done less than four hundred tests, I'm not confident that it wasn't just a lack of supplies.

Does anyone personally know somebody that's been tested or confirmed with it? I don't.

I know someone who is in in-home quarantine because they were exposed to someone who tested positive.

I don't know. I can't go to the bar anymore to find out the daily gossip.

(as far as I know, no.)

There’s no test kits. You have to hit certain criteria to be tested so many people could have it. The government sure shit the bed on this one. This will define trumps presidency on how it turns out

GermanGurl was freaking out. She needed a break from the news, So I put a movie on to calm her. Somehow, “The Crazies” was probably not the best choice.
Just kidding, she wouldn’t watch it.

In my last house we had that corner bottom cabinet that is not easily accessed. I filled it with one gallon jugs of distilled water. I had close to forty under there. Pull as needed replace weekly of when shopping.
The gal living with me used every one without replenishing. When I explained the paradigm of having forty gallons of easily transportable potable water. She accusingly called me a “prepper”. She was the classic minimalist.
What was I prepping for? I don’t know. Three days, not a problem. Two weeks, we can handle it. Two months, I’ll be hunting the neighborhood cats. We got over it, she played my little game. We kept a pantry I figured we could live off of for thirty days, if we had to.

This event should be called the “Election Virus”. Trump will be crucified in the press for every misstep by anybody in government. Democrats are already saying he was slow to act and I don’t see it.

This pandemic scenario scares me shitless, I don’t want to get pneumonia again, it almost killed me.
