So far nothing in our area. I'm sure it will eventually.

After going to the store for normal Sunday groceries today, I can say that I am embarrassed to be an American citizen right now. People are unbelievably uneducated, rude and selfish and take a me-first attitude toward anything that changes their lifestyle, not to mention the scared ones....holee shiot.

Wash your hands, cover your cough, keep person-to-person contact to a minimum, keep out of large groups and IGNORE everything the MSM is telling you for the next few months until the scare passes. Use-common-sense. Its not difficult.

Sorry for the rant. Nothing makes me angry like people acting like a-holes.



Hope all is well in the Lovrich home, Mike.

Couldn't have said it better Tom.
The wife and I went out to breakfast this morning and I can say it was like any normal day. The only thing that changed was the waitress was wearing gloves. We will be swamped with work now that LAUSD is closed. We get a lot of work done when no teachers or kids are around.
I leave for Cancun the beginning of May for a week. I haven't changed my mind just doing things as I normally do.

Hope that all is well with everyone else. Stay safe.
Hi Mike

Yeah up here in Washington state people are acting just as Tom described. Was at the store on Friday and it was packed! No fricken bread, toiletpaper or paper towels to be found. 2 isles down i found one of the reasons for this. Lady had two carts full of all that shiot. I just shook my head and countinued on.

Our family is healthy, and the last day of school is tomorrow until April 27th.
Be safe and stay healthy fellas!

I think this shit will pass sooner than we think. Think family first and keep the hands washed. Stay away from people. Use fist pumps instead of hand shakes.
Never thought I would see a time like this. We WILL come out of this fine and stronger.

I have also been spending a lot more time in the garage. Setting up a new table saw and making some storage items for the RV.

Trying to make just one trip a week to the stores and just keeping two weeks supply of key food items instead of one. A few extra weeks of canned goods.

getting back to the basics and quality family time, will enjoy sending time outdoors hiking and gardening. try to isolate to not contribute to sreading this to those more vulnerable. school is closed at least for the next month.
good luck and god bless

Nothing too out of the ordinary here, people losing their minds and stripping the shelves at Costco, etc. Keeping to ourselves, aside the wife running her daycare, the Governor here extended spring break from 1 week to 3, so the kids are excited about that

Seems like an extreme overreaction to me, I'm with TheBac on the way people are acting.

hope everyone else is doing well, stay safe

Tons of work trips and visits cancelled. Our yearly audit got postponed which is great for us, more time to get the shop in shape for inspections.

We do breakfast with my 93yr old granddad every Friday. Not sure what we will do now. Gotta put his health first, but I know he will just say, “if it’s my time, it’s my time son”.

Thats how I feel , too. If its my time, its my time. My Dad and his wife asked that none of us visit until the scare is over. We all understood. I figure if they need anything, they can call Steve or I (we're closest), we can go get whatever it is, and leave it in their garage for them.
