I admit, I never thought it would get this bad, but whew. We haven't stocked up, and maybe that is a bad thing, and now especially since people are going crazy and cleaning out the stores. I usually do my grocery shopping on Friday evenings, but I am hoping to get to the store early tomorrow morning. The whole toilet paper thing is just crazy. I was at a Walmart store last night after going to Lowe's and there was no toilet paper - but lots of paper towels? There were 2 kinds of hand soap left. I don't normally shop at Walmart, so I'm hoping our local stores will have the stuff I need. The Governor has recommended all schools close for at least 2 weeks. Many are just starting spring break in our area or will have spring break in another week or two, so many schools are calling off for the next 3 weeks. My daughters school is one of them. After tomorrow, they won't return to school until April 6th - that last week was her already scheduled spring break. The kids will have Non Traditional Instructional days (NTI) and do work each day at home. She is really sad because they had an Agriculture class field trip they were supposed to take today, and a school dance tomorrow. Of course it's all canceled. Now I'm praying my spring job is not going to be at risk. I do photography for a media outlet at our local horseracing track. The track announced today it would be closed to spectators/fans/bettors from opening day (Apr 2nd through the 15th) well the last day of the meet is the 24th. There are several big races the first 2 weekends. The man who runs the website I work for said 'yes' to credentialed media being allowed to attend, so fingers crossed. The $$ I earn for spring races helps with goat stuff/show season since I am not otherwise employed. Of course now they are talking about possibly postponing the Kentucky Derby, and that ends my spring season at the races. Geez I hope nobody here gets sick, hopefully all of us and our families and friends stay safe. Hopefully we can all get back on track with our lives soon, and put this crazy madness and scary sickness behind us.
