    It's the littlest things...

    As we approach a new training season in Illinois, we get this:

    All Continuing Education (CE) classes are being suspended beginning with classes on Monday, March 16, 2020. Classes are currently targeted to resume on Monday, April 13, 2020. As you know, the circumstances of the pandemic are evolving rapidly.
    ...
    Most Motorcycle Safety classes will be cancelled. Because we already schedule training ranges to their maximum usage, there is little opportunity to reschedule them.
    Chicago has banned all gatherings of 1000 or more people, except at the places where a lot of random interaction occurs with people who may be infected (like airports, train stations, public transportation).

    Which means that my anime convention is probably soon to be cancelled.

    Stocked up on dog food and ventured into costco today for supplies, it was almost surreal. Time to go into hibernation for a few weeks.

    Got a call from someone asking if I'd heard that the state of Illinois is asking all bars to close for two weeks. "Should I get a gun for protection, in case people start rampaging?"

    Went shopping. The things we were low on, there was plenty of. Except for Kleenex, Puffs, or even generic tissue. Toilet paper? Empty racks. Paper towels? Empty racks. Napkins? How many do you want? Hand sanitizer? There's supposed to be a couple of guys in Texas with 17,000 bottles because Amazon and eBay both refuse to take their listings.

    No, just circle your house with biohazard warning tape, everybody will leave you alone.

    I've never eaten better. Now is the time to take good care of your body and stay very healthy, assume you have the thing already and start fighting it, prepare to get good at taking care of those who succumb to it.

    I'm good to go, I'm self quarantined to a great riding area.

    They should be spending the time thinking about how to deal with it instead.

    Like tell people to stop vaping anywhere!
    and don't flush anything that is not toilet paper or has not gone past your lips first

    Why we are being told to "Shelter in place": "Cower in place" did not do well in focus group testing.
