All schools in Minnesota are closed for two weeks as of this coming Wednesday.
At the high school my grandson attends they are open till noon tomorrow and will be telling the students to clean out their lockers. Apparently after the two weeks are up they will be doing online learning for the rest of the year.


Not sure if all these actions are justified or if it is unnecessary panic. But I guess if it slows down the spread of this stuff then I suppose the inconvenience will be worth it.

My daughter who works in Seattle said that at least 9 restaurants in downtown Seattle have closed permanently. She sent a pic of Sunday's Farmers market in Ballard where she lives and the street was basically empty. Maybe 4 or 5 vendors on one end of the closed off street. Usually it's two full blocks, and FULL of vendors and people. Schools and libraries are closed here and many customer service lobbies are closed.

I went to the grocery yesterday and the store was unusually empty. My son and daughter in law are both working from home and my granddaughter is E-learning from home. I have skin cancer surgery today they called and said if I have symptoms to reschedule. Well. with COPD and constant sinus issues, I have some of the symptoms. But I am going and they can send me back home. BTW the Dr. is 7 months pregnant

I hope you all are practicing social media distancing -- Please sit at least three feet from your monitors and key boards and only use your fingernails to type with, ok? No virtual hugs. Use plenty of hand sanitizer on your mouse and usb ports.

Hope this helps.

(NOTE: I'm KIDDING. Please don't put any liquids on your computer equipment. I'm NOT kidding about hugging me, though. Pandemic or not, my personal space is measure in acres, not inches)

.....and Chic fil A is only doing drive thru. I'm missing all my hugs today!

.....an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
....and I just heard we now have our first confirmed case here in my little town of Boiling Springs.

I'm well stocked on anything I need...and my needs are simple. I'm glad they are being pre-cautious at school. Not only for my teacher daughters but for my small grand kids and old farts like me. Did i say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure?

I think I'll hibernate in my shop for a week or two. I may even get something done.

John. Marines need not do all that they can make computers work by staring at them and concentrating real hard. Put fear into them. Oorah.

Some aspects of the scare are getting serious. My wife's food pantry serves the needy in four counties and 147 zip codes. They ran out of food today and the normal suppliers/donators cannot resupply them since the general public is stripping the shelves bare. Even the giant Campbell soup factory in Paris, Texas had none which they have always sold to the pantry at cost. For the old and/or infirm soup is about the only hot meal they can prepare. She also makes up backpacks for the local schools so needy kids have something to eat on weekends and was beside herself having no supplies. I had her make up a list and went shopping in the wee hours this morning at 24hr stores and have this to say: God bless the stock boys-girls. When I told them what I was doing and showed them the list items appeared through the store room doors that were not on the shelves. I also left with close to $200 cash in 5's and 10's from low wage hourly workers to help with the grocery bill. Seems non wealthy people are the most generous. I told all of them that once all this is over they definitely have a big hug on the credit list.
