How am i doing? Like everyone else im scared. Im not sick yet nor is anyone i love . No one is working. Our Governor here in Michigan has issued a stay home shelter in place order beginning midnight tonight for at least 3 weeks. So far we have 1400 covid 19 pos patients and 15 deaths. Our numbers are expected to skyrocket in the next several weeks.

We will get thru it is what im telling myself.
Be safe fellow cabin lovers. I have a contractor working on finishing my cabin addition next week. I cant wait to get up there . To feel safe.

Doing well. We mostly have no need to head to town for anything for a while. We had a trip planned but we decided to cancel when we saw covid-19 was spreading to EU.

Stay safe.

Hi Lisa, please try not to worry. I’m in MI too.
I still don’t know anyone with COVID-19.
I got my taxes done yesterday while my husband sat in the truck.
No contact with anyone except my tax lady. In her office for approximately 10 minutes, one signature each, I took the paper out to my husband to sign. The chairs in her office were set back six feet from her desk.
I noticed a lot of people out. So many at our local produce store where everything is uncovered.
I do not understand why anyone would buy any food that is not in a package right now.
Costco sells big bags of fruit and frozen vegetables.
My local bulk food store had quite a few customers too. Same. Bins of food. With scoopers inside. People reaching in there with the scoopers and breathing on the contents.
I’m allowed to walk outside. Just maintain a six foot distance from everyone.
IDK how my daughters best friend is going to proceed with her outdoor civil marriage ceremony this weekend. She was only going to have a few people there. Gatherings of any kind outdoors is banned.
The marriage has to happen. Off topic here I’m going over to the healthcare in Canada topic to write about this.
Take care everyone.

Sad times.

Well we took a run out to the cabin on Sunday. Beautiful day. Very quiet but lots of people ice fishing (close to 50 vehicles within sight). Snowmobilers riding about too.

All the toilet paper was still in the outhouse. It won’t bother me if someone comes by and takes some. The hoarders have short sheeted everyone else (those who didn’t suffer an “emotional breakdown” and panic buy everything in sight) and so now can’t even find TP when they actually need it.

Looking forward to some warm days so our snow starts to disappear. Hope to get out there a lot more so hoping that people stay calm, practice social distancing and don’t screw everything up for the majority of people. Unfortunately I can see governments going all totalitarian because of the few bad apples.

TP.
We did lots of TP loads based out of Kimberly Clark in Beech Island NC.
There are plants all over the USA. The above is the plant/warehouse we frequented.
A semi 53’ trailer of TP is approximately 25,000 pounds with approximately 250,000 rolls of TP.
As a team, we could be in California in two days.

We hauled relief loads during 9/11.
Loads to Louisiana after Katrina. Loads before and after all types of catastrophic events in the USA.

What everyone needs to worry about is how the truck drivers are being mistreated.
There is no place for them to park because many states have shut down rest areas, weigh stations and travel plazas. Some are reopening them slowly.
They are being ticketed and at times towed because they have to find a parking spot to sleep and it’s a illegal parking area, the only place available.
They have no place that is safe to shower or go to the bathroom.
If our truck drivers get sick. That’s it. We are going to be in big trouble.
Because every thing you buy, every medical supply used, everything is shipped to you via a truck driver.

There's a place local to me that I hope more businesses emulate. They are closed to most business (restaurant) but they've opened their parking lot to truckers and are offering rest room facilities and take out to them. They don't have showers, but still, they have the bare minimum and are offering it for free (I'm sure they still charge for take away food).

Today my daughters best friend got married by a judge on the sidewalk outside the courthouse.
The judge had a N95 mask on.

The brides Mom and Daughter stood 6 feet away. My daughter stayed in her car because she has bronchitis. The grooms Mother is ill with kidney disease she couldn’t be there so they did FaceTime.

Wow. I never thought in my wildest dreams I would be writing something like this.

I’m glad to hear that truck drivers are getting food.

However the one place they can shop is out of everything because regular people that can go to a grocery store with their tiny cars are sourcing products at the truck stops.

That’s so crappy. Really. Some of these drivers are staying out on the road until this is over to help out.
We did that quite often. Imagine being afraid to shower in a public shower and not being able to keep yourself clean because Biff from the tiny four wheeler bought the last package of wet wipes.

With all this doom and gloom, we need a little bit of fun too. I think you will like this video. It seemed very appropriate for this forum. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I3xpRZITi2w&feature=youtu.be

I am fine up here in Central New York. Because my husband is a health care worker with a community based hospital practice in a town with many cases, we decided early I would come here alone with the dog. I moved up here in early March with enough food for three months and got internet installed (did not want to) so I can work from home. It is nicer here and I know every inch of my 16 x 24 cabin now. I am so glad I carefully chose to make it comfy over the past 18 months. It works very well. A few people have judged me for leaving the bigger CNY town where we live to go and live alone in a second home with my dog. How entitled! I ask them to go to bed each night worrying about a spouse who is treating sick people all day in a town with community spread, and who volunteered to do extra shifts if needed. I would be very happy to share that anxiety with anybody who wants to help burden it. I hope everyone here is well.

I'm glad you chose the smart decision to isolate you and your pup! I'm sure that you have a ton of apprehension leaving your husband (temporarily), but you are both doing the right thing. The more I hear about CNY, the more that I realize they are really in the ditches, Central PA isn't near the hotspot that your hubs is working in. I commend him for the vital work that he is doing, and I only hope that both of your mental spirits can stay well in the midst of this. Stay well!
