This was supposed to be until April 7th in the Bay Area, no idea now as it keeps getting worse. With the rain, any attempt to get outside is a no-go too leaving my options to very few at home now. The rain should clear up next week, that part will be temporary at least. … Continue reading Day 13: No end in sight
We lay around, go for walks, eat, lay around. Let's see if I can write something positive today as we crawl to the supposed backside of this shelter in place. The statistics in the U.S. have stayed the same, 2% death rate according to my calculations. Ran the numbers for Italy, it's 10%. Looks like … Continue reading Day 12: It’s a dog’s life
Yesterday was just ugly for me, usually I'm one who goes into action in a crisis and then falls apart when it's all good. With everyone home and good, it was my turn to finally fall apart and lose hope for all of mankind. There have been a few instances where I went into "Heller" … Continue reading Day 11: Are we there yet?

Something I saw on the news was that people are fleeing to areas where they will be less likely to get … Continue reading Day 7: Neighborhood persona non grata
They spent 2 nights in the truck away from other people, then I can relax about family since we'll all be together. I'm starting to form an opinion about how this is going to go down, granted I'm nowhere near being a Dr. of anything. We'll all get this, like we've all gotten the flu, … Continue reading Day 6: Family is almost home
Before 9/11, my mom had retired then worked 2 jobs. She was still substitute teaching, then she got a job with American Airlines again in the unaccompanied minors section. She had been a stewardess in the late 50's, early 60's and had to quit when she got married. When she retired from teaching, they hired … Continue reading Day 5: Our lives are changed for awhile
It's only the beginning, not sure when the end will be? Supposedly April 7th, everyone here is scrambling to keep their jobs/businesses (in our case). This is not a popular blog, there's a limited tracker on it from wordpress that just tells me what country is viewing. When I did my first blog before the … Continue reading Day 3 of Bay Area Shelter in Place
