I watch a lot of travel videos, with couples that spend their lives on the road. It’s fascinating to watch the various ways they’re dealing with the pandemic, depending on which country they were caught in and what their priorities are.

It’s so rare that a crisis isn’t localized; meaning, most people can ignore a tornado in Tennessee, or even a Tsunami in Japan, but nearly everyone has to take a bite of this particular shit sandwich.

WFH starting today. (Had yesterday off) We'll probably split out time between CT and VT just to change our scenery.

So, Glenn, can you confirm that you have rethought this? This is exactly the type of behavior that encourages the spread of the disease and more people dying. “Shelter at home” doesn’t mean “shelter at two homes across state lines.”

If he only shopped at one grocery store and brought the food back and forth with him and only got gas at 1 gas station all the time. then...

Even stopping at one gas station increases risk. It’s a completely selfish thing to do.

The house next to me has 2 cars with NY plates in the driveway. :angry:

One is his 24 year old son, the other is the son's girlfriend.

I guess if they stayed there sheltering-in-place it wouldnt be the worst thing, he has 35 acres & they could enjoy some air, but we went for a walk yesterday and the GF drove back alone; being that nothing is open here but grocery stores, liquor stores, and restaurants, likely she went to one of those. This is precisely how coronavirus is spreading from NYC into the NY, NJ, CT, countryside.

Here's how I'm filling my time without skiing and being stuck at home. Here's what I made so far between yesterday and today:

Shrimp Risotto

Thanks. I very much enjoy cooking. So not being able to go out to dinner and having to eat at home isn't an issue for me (although I do love going out to restaurants as well and will be glad when I can go visit some of them again).

He might, but the Stowe parking lot was full yesterday and there were a lot of NY and MA cars there.

It's really disturbing how many people seem to be taking, "WFH, quarantine in place" as an excuse to take the family somewhere for a vacation.
