    The FL Gov has temporarily shut down several beaches that are popular for spring break. I would imagine that as these people that think their right to party is more important than somebody else's health will migrate to other beaches. Those will probably get shut down as well. The Gov's statement was ---- your party is over. Go home.

    The state campgrounds closed. But tons of spring breakers remain.

    Well that's about to change and there's a rude awakening about to hit the clueless. They are not so invincible as they were led to believe so if they didn't care about infecting grandma they'll care about their own self-absorbed hide.

    The Gov should have thought about it BEFORE they showed up. If the bars and restaurants and the liquor stores were closed it wouldn't have been half as much fun showing up. Now, after rubbing elbows with their fellow snowflakes, they'll go home and pass it on to their elders. Smart thinking all around.

    Those things are all closed and have been. There is no accounting for the entitled class and the stupid. Mrs. Crash and I went for a walk on one of our favorite beaches (skipping the gym that we usually hit 4 times a week) where we walked five miles and only saw 2 other people. We have always planned our outings to avoid too much human contact. Now more than ever.

    Every state might as well go ahead and do the same right now.

    Kelly and I are doing some home maintenance for a few days then getting back out to the fresh air and few people. Maybe a multi day river trip. Also going to see if we can stock up some old (er) farts with grub so they dont have to expose themselves.

    Agreed. No need to fool around with half measures and stretch this thing out longer. Go all in now and hopefully we can get back to work quickly and get that economy back on it’s feet.

    In the meantime, if you’ve got some spare money.... whoo baby you’ll be able to get some stocks at close out prices right after they announce a shutdown.

    Curb your optimism Cliff, this is just the first wave.

    Historically plagues sweep through on a first wave, then after the population is exhausted they mutate slightly to avoid the immune resistance that has built up and the second wave is the one that kills the most.

    The second wave usually hits about when everyone thinks it is all over.

    Then they repeat for two-five years before they wipe out their host population and have only the resistant left. As some of the survivors grow older they develop those diseases that the plague thrives on and it turns into what we consider the "normal" death rate only because the % of dead made up of the aging or already sick.

    That is why the deaths from the "common flu" are accepted to the point that more than half our nation refuses to take a flu shot.

    The peak of this thing is predicted to be end of April early May. Need to get things under control before then. This thing likely swings back through in the Fall, but that's a ways off. We'll have time to prepare. PPE, quarantine units, ventilators, and hopefully effective drugs.

    So I suppose a wolfpack gathering this year is out of the question?

    I asked Arnold where he found the toilet paper and he told me.

    "Aisle B, Back."

    I've got my plan down for the rest of the quarantine. I'm going to sleep until I'm hungry then eat until I'm sleepy. I've been working on it for a couple of days now and it seems pretty solid to me.
