Just curious how the community at large is holding up these days. That's all.

My folks on the hand, may not come out of is as well, so that's my primary stressor.
That's why I'm on the east coast. My Mom lives alone and I can do 85% of my work remotely or get Jeff to do the heavy lifting.

All my firearms are out west but I can whip up a 2x4 with a nail in it pretty quick! :-)

Exactly... if it was only about me, I'd probably say 9, down from 10. Feels closer to a 5 though, but only because it hasn't hit closer to home yet.

Someone where my SO works has it. That's in downtown Tampa. He's had to work from home, while some have to stay at the office.

I still feel for others, like the elderly, the heroic Chinese people for what they've had to endure and Italy. It doesn't mean we don't feel for others, particularly the elderly, or those losing income, or stock value if we choose an 8 or a 9. Everyone is just affected differently. It also doesn't mean we're not worried. I don't think anyone knows for sure how it will all ultimately play out.

I do. Wife's co-worker whom we've also socialized with. She outed herself on FaceBook to let people who've been in contact with her know. This was earlier last week and she already feels much better while in self quarantine. 30's, health nut, athletic.

My son & I both symptom free now.
My family has made the best of it stuck in a shutdown community.
We've cooked some insane food.
We've binged a couple of shows.
We were lucky enough to have avoided Breaking Bad..its new to us.
I'm 54 but I still enjoy playing video games with my sons.
I'm leveling toons on WoW that I haven't played in 5 yrs.
The dog has gone for so many walks on trails that he barely runs now when he hears the leash come out.
Sex like were snowed in from a Blizzard and its my Birthday.
Its a sunny day today shot hoops in my driveway.
The wife and I purchased some pot so we sneak out to the garage & catch a buzz when we can out of view. My Youngest is still unaware we do this from time to time.
Board games.Card games.
Chess tourney we have going on.
Might build a fire tonight outside.
We've done a lot of early spring cleaning.


So do not think I'm curled up in a ball paralyzed with fear.
Our country is Strong I have complete Faith we will get it all back on track but it might take a good amount of time.

But my eyes are not closed to the world Economy Tanking.
Nor all the sick people who are strongly effected by this.
Italy holy shit..almost 2k people in the last 3 days.

So I'm keeping on but the condition of the world alone has to take you down 4 or 5 points.
I understand that and I'm worried for my fellow Americans as much as anyone but that is not what the question asked. The question asked 'How am I holding up?' I'm doing just fine, great actually.

Now if the question was 'How worried are you about the current situation?' I'd put it at 7 or 8.

After the Domino effect spread far enough people realized the seriousness of the situation.
I'd guess it was someone who is a 10 that gave my post a thumbs down.
Just for a fun exercise I tried reading through it to think of what would've given that reaction.

Weakness on my part? Denial on their part?
Maybe the person still hopes that the virus is fake news..
I'm unsure.

Honestly I'm hoping the middle of the country never does get to the point we are here in NY.
But at this moment the only thing that will stop it is some amazing news coming from NYC and the Med trials.
Don't spend any time torturing yourself over a thumbs down, chances are someone tried to give you a thumbs up on mobile and just fat fingered it and didn't realize they did it.

Everything's pretty much fine. Haven't noticed any real difference at work at all except that now I have to wipe everything down before starting my pre-flight, and after I my post-flight.

Shopping has become slightly more inconvenient, but now I'm going right after work, so I get there around 7am, and usually the stores are stocked up at 7.

The outdoor range near my house just decided to temporarily close until April or so, so that's annoying. May have to go out to the desert to get my noise therapy for awhile.

My real complaint is that this whole thing is probably going to mess with my summer vacation plans. Every July a group of us meet up in WY for a week's fishing, and right now everyone's talking about cancelling. That's the best rip of the year for me, so I'll be pissed if it doesn't happen.

I did forget to add the Hamburger Helper powder with the noodles. Tell after it was done simmering. But nobody knew but me.
Sorry to hear. I thought it was rough putting up with a ribeye steak Friday night, because I prefer a NY Strip. But the homemade cheesecake got me forgetting about it pretty quickly.

I actually hope this for the country.... a reset would serve us well..especially if this gets worse.
I completely agree here.
My description of the last 2 weeks being hunkered down like this is pretty much what we always do anyhow.
Just A LOT more of each thing to the 10th degree.
Where school or work never interrupts the party


In fact after rereading my post I thought wow this has been far from a 0 on the poll for me what am I thinking?
more like a 10...9 :-)

I’m feeling you on those summer plans

Already paid for my tix on a Cre, Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett concert on a friday in June, followed up the very next night with Journey and the Pretenders

Yeah I’d get a refund eventually, but hell man I’ve been dreaming about that weekend all winter... and Cre is HUGE for me, been on my bucket list since around 1983 :-)
