    Gas prices are lower right now. That helps folks avoid spending more than normal.

    Gas was $1.77 a gallon by us this morning.

    Wisconsin governor is giving it a new name and is issuing a "safer at home" order. It is effective tomorrow morning thru April 24th...

    I like that better than quarantine.

    I'm trying to get sent home from work. The boss was out for a day and a half last week with a fever. Then she was out yesterday and half of today with diarrhea. A woman at a bank in the next town tested positive and the mom of one of the girls that works for my girlfriend has a desk right next to her. She is also the secretary for one of my coworkers girlfriend's uncle and the uncle was at her house yesterday. The boss freaked out when I walked through the office to get to the tool room. Then I was sitting in the office talking to the service manager and he brought in the parts tote from outside. He sanatized his hands after opening the tote. I told him that was a good idea since our parts come from Atlanta, then the boss shut both of the doors to her office. So I let out a cough as I was heading back out to the shop.

    I was thinking that having a couple weeks off where no customers have a reason to call me would be kinda nice.

    Gas is $1.49.
    Lowest I have seen in many years.
    No sugar, self rising flour, rice, canned green beans, AND the crappie aren’t turned on yet.

    Lowest I've seen is $1.53. Stores have pretty much everything now, with limits on things like bread, chicken, eggs, tp and flour.

    And the crappie are turning on early this year @SEMO. However my job decided that we're "essential" so I'm back to adulting and can't be on the water... Boo. :confused:

    I have to work tomorrow, not sure very many people will be coming in for fishing gear but I'm sure we will
    get those special customers that think this is still just a hoax.

    The $hit is going to hit the in my house tomorrow...
    Spent almost 3 weeks with a FM in the hospital as all this virus craziness was unfolding..
    Not being able to leave the hospital for to long and stock up on supplies +a little cabin fever shopping.
    Somehow the stars are lining up and since every item appears to have shipped in a different box...
    I think I’m at about 10 packages that are coming in tomorrow...
    10 packages of virus craziness related supplies all showing up on the same day... Pretty sure the wifey is going to bury me in the backyard...
    But HeY! Doesn’t look like I’m running out of supplies anytime soon now :)
    Win, Loose, Win?? Maybe...

    my buddy sent me this pic of the subway to nyc this morning...he said he was the only one in the whole train as far as he can tell :eek:

    usually, it's so packed i have to wait 10 minutes and skip 1-2 trains because i don't feel like getting a free lap dance :D all kidding aside, this is just damn shocking to me how empty it is!

    i've always wanted to ride my bike through the tunnels and into nyc and just hear that loud exhaust bounce around the buildings...this is a good time i guess to check that off my bucket list...be careful what you wish for is true :(

    world trade center during rush hour is so packed...usually, you can't even deviate from walking in a straight line without looking on your side first to prevent side-swiping someone.

    All the cities are issuing stay at home orders around here in South Georgia. My boss didn't come in until about 11 today and I just heard her coughing in her office.She commented to her daughter the GM and sales manager about how us guys in the service department (there's only 4of us) were just joking about the virus. They just don't have a sense of humor we have been talking this more serious than anyone else around here. Up until about 2 days ago the GM had been ranting about how it's a hoax and it's not as bad as the flu. People are strange. The boss is terrified and is sick but won't stay home.

    I just got home from a mandatory 12 hr road trip. Surprising how many people are still out and about, but I guess it's primarily folks going to work, etc. A lot of truely nonessential employers seem to be struggling with how to handle this mess. Our governor hasn't placed any true restrictions on them yet.

    Going fishing tomorrow. I hope that the throngs of people I noticed today at every trailhead and park I passed don't mean an extra busy creek, but it probably does. Just means I'll have to hike farther to get away from the crowds which is fine too.
