COVID-19 #StayHome: The Positive Vibe Thread

Recommended Posts

Good things so far:

nobody I am close to has fallen ill with the virus

 

I've had phone calls and Skypes with friends I have not talked to for years. It was fun to catch-up.

 

I had my doctor's appointment via telemedicine which means I did not have to stand on a scale!!!! :yahoo:

Yesterday I received my ID from work indicating that I'm "essential," even though I've been working from home for ~12 years.

So far luckily, I haven't talked to family and close friends who have the covid-19 or is feeling ill. That is a good thing and hope it stays that way. Enjoying some good wines I've had in the cellar for a few years. Also a chance to eat well, alot better then I normally do.

Much less traffic on the roads is nice! Getting lots of laughs hearing about my hypochondriac friend’s shopping excursions.

I'm essential and I too have really enjoyed the reduction in cars on the road. For the first time ever I've been able to get from point A to B with excessive profanity.

Forgot to mention I had a April appointment with a medical specialist that was made in Feb. April was their earliest appointment open. Well they called yesterday and asked if I wanted to come in for the appointment. It seems all the old farts canceled appointments and now the office is a ghost town.

Local news was reporting a dramatic increase in 100+ mph citations. Can't say I blame the offenders. Rarely if ever will you see wide open expressways and freeways.

I saw TxDPS sitting along the shoulder as I came into Houston yesterday...it was an area of the freeway that is usually jammed at that hour (830a) or, at least is not going to be in a position to allow one to drive much over 70MPH (which would be five or ten over the limit). 

 

Of course, one has to question how they are quantifying the term "dramatic." As we have learned again through the "pandemic," there are many who don't understand statistics.  I could easily see a news reporting outfit hyping the dramatic increase because of the percentages that would be related to two citations today compared to one yesterday...from a percentage standpoint, they would technically be correct.  From a practical standpoint...GTFO with the claim.

Got caught up with a friend today who lives in SSA; had not talked to him since a good friend of ours died unexpectedly last year.
