They are now saying that in our area the first half of March could be colder and more snow than we have had. Possibly even into April.

They don't call it "March, the Mad Scientist" for nothing. Image

I generally leave the winter tires on until April, unless it remains wintery, then until it is consistently above 40º. We have gotten dumped on in April before, and being heavy wet snow, there are more crashes than usual.

I hope not- I would have to skip the Dayton meet.

So, how about this coronavirus y'all?! This is insane, I'm off until April 13th at the earliest. Thankfully, my mortgage company was able to defer my payments until June. This is probably the scariest time of my life. Not necessarily for me, but for my older family members, and for the economy at large. My kid's school just sent home laptops for them to use, conceivably until the end of the school year. They mentioned in the e-mail that the kids could potentially return them at the beginning of next year.

It is certainly enlightening on how unprepared we really are....

There is talk of returning kids to school before the end of the school year, but given how this is supposed to peak in May, I don't see how that is supposed to work, as most schools are done at the end of May. It makes about as much sense as reopening business in the peak of the virus's impact.

The truly sad part of all this, is the children that have to deal with parents, that should never have been parents; that are having to actually be parents now, because they can't just drop the kids off for someone else to raise.

And some politicians using those children as an excuse to open the economy so those "parents" wont be beating or murdering their children. But ignore taking care of the actual issue. /rant


Hopefully everyone is doing well, other than the obvious. Things have gotten a lot more quiet on the forums than usual, except for the spammers.

I am still working, since my employer is an "essential business". Given the state of getting unemployment in Ohio right now, I guess I will take that over getting a vacation stuck at home, even as much as that would be a nice break.

My employer is claiming to be essential, but I think it's bullshit. I've been staying home anyway, without pay. It's a little sketchy. No working from home, which really sucks.

Not to make light of things as NYC really has a BIG problem! But here on the other end of the State of CONFUSION(Western NY) people are having to do as directed and panicking that those from closely affected areas are traveling to our area to buy goods (hoarding) and leaving the Virus with us to contend with. Our rural area stores are smaller in size so not a lot of variety or quantity as it is.
And my feeling is that like some "online Colleges" that have sprung up the last few years, will be the pattern for a lot of traditional colleges to follow. The rural area schools here are trying to implement the same, BUT finding out that the homefront does NOT entice the "kiddos'" to being online(IF they have internet and at high enough speed) to do any class work from home. My wife is an assistant teacher(working in smaller groups of "special needs" students 3-5 grade) MANY of them think this is just a long vacation and don't have to do school work assigned, and they will probably "get away with it"!
LORD, please help this upcoming generation! Yes my wife is home, but also spends hours a day contacting students, messaging teachers for classwork and ideas. THEN also spends 10:30 - 1:00 outdoors at our fire hall helping serve hot lunches and morning cold breakfasts to district students from our end of the school district along with being there for students questions! It's EARLY SPRING, but wind,rain and temps are NOT that warm up here yet!
Let's all pray that things don't get worse and blows out of here SOON!

This is happening in a few places.

Most rural areas don't have the hospital capacity that the urban areas do. And like said, the stores are not stocked or equipped to handle hoards of people.

What should have been done was small communities that are otherwise fairly well isolated, should have had the National Guard set up roadblocks to keep people out that don't belong there. It probably wouldn't help as far as the school situation, since things are usually spread out, but it would help with the stores and infrastructure.

I'm pretty much "retired"(physical disability), But our school districts calendar said they started their 2 week Spring Break today. BUT they are still going to do meals(mon - fri) for students AND any community people in need. Also going to continue with trying to implement and get results of "stay at home" distance learning in ALL grades. The wonderful administration FINALLY realized just how many do NOT have internet or that the system available here can not handle the sudden heavy traffic on it and has "gone down" a couple times this last week! Now they are investigating using school buses with WI-FI to be stationed in such areas to create hot spots for access to doing school work "online".
I have a neighborhood friend that is now keeping home defense items "at the ready", He told me to CALL before showing up...Retired NAVY SUBMARINER roll eyes...
