I know some pretty sickly horse boomers.

The problem is that they aren't staying in/isolating.

Right now I'm glad that social distancing is my normal way of life.

Which is really funny, because not 2 days ago she made a statement that shutting everything down wasn't something she was "even contemplating"

I know, I watched the broadcast when she said that, but I didn't believe her. My wife argued with me that it would hurt her credibility if she said one thing and did another, I still said she would do it.... I guess we will see what happens as the day unfolds.

I just watched Whitmer and she was happy to put all blame on Feds. Not her fault at all.

I also saw a few minutes of Cuomo's press conference. New York is testing 16K per day. Pushing to get more hospital beds. Working to get supplies.

this stay at home order, really is not anything new. they've been telling people that for the last 3 weeks. Only difference now, is the governor made it "have to" instead of "should"

chill the fawk out people. stay the fawk at home. No, it is not martial law, and if you think so, you're a dumbass.

I can't wait to see the stories of Costco and Meijer being overloaded by the stay at home order.

In my world down here in Indiana most people are already on self imposed stay at home. And anyone who can already work from home is.

Still isn't easy.

Those of you who have farms, property, house projects, etc. to keep you busy make it much easier to pass the time. I live in a subdivision and the only two projects I have are cleaning the garage and going through my deceased mothers belongings. That makes for a real long 3 weeks.


I just hope this works.

I broke my ankle middle of January and I finally got it off and can start walking like a normal person after 2-1/2 weeks of physical therapy. I've been off work the whole time
I went through a bunch of things to do around the house and now I'm ready to go out and do things and this happens
I guess I'm going to gut and reorganize my garage
