I live next to Hwy 64 into Hendersonville & we hear ambulance going by all the time.

A lot of old folks live here & so you get a lot of traffic to the Hospital.


I do not have the best hearing, but I can hear that we have no planes,
Trains & ambulance going by. :eek:.o:

I just wonder why we do not hear anything like you would think,
if people are getting sick all over.

What's going on around you?

Outside the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on the NC side, it is like a ghost town. The Park is essentially closed. Harrah's Casino is closed as is the Cherokee Reservation - they are on lockdown - only a few ways in/out and you have to be a tribal member to get in. My town of Sylva, NC has come to a standstill. Any non-residents/visitors coming into Jackson County, NC must self-quarantine at home for 14 days (not sure how they can enforce it.) No traffic on Highway 74/23 at all. Eerily quiet. We have one confirmed Virus case - someone from out of state that came to their second home in our county.

i drove around Scottsdale, AZ yesterday and any shopping area, strip all etc has a half-dozen cars and a few people that look more out for exercise than anything else.

Main Street economies can't take this for 30-45 more days, they'll be nothing left.

Even if I was a sunglass hut or other typical "mall retailer" with thousand's of locations how long can you pay your rent before saying uncle

most folks in the mid to eastern part of CT are home . fewer accidents(auto) noted. a lot fewer drug addicts and drunks driving cannot be a bad thing.

western CT is doomed like NYCesspool because too many people work and travel to NYC and of course spread the virus to everyone they contact

no stim package yet(thanks demonrats) and no sba loans yet either. hoping we get through this somehow

The “stay at home/shelter in place” order goes into effect this morning for the county I live in in east Texas and is supposed to last a week. My family enacted our own “stay at home” order almost two weeks ago when my wife and daughter’s school was cancelled. We got word this morning that the school will remain closed until at least April 17.

Dateline: CO Springs. I work in the "essential" auto repair industry. The governor has had us on a stay home order for a week or so. I can tell you I've been enjoying about 30% less traffic on the roads here. Coloradans don't stay home, though. Everyone is out at the park, on the trails and in the stores. The only reason they're not all taking this State Mandated vacation on their bikes and Jeeps in Utah is cause Moab is closed. It's frustrating. I'm a freedom-loving American, and my family and I are not panicked over the pandemic, but if more people would hunker down for a while, this would all be over sooner.

Went grocery shopping at 7am this morning, traffic was lighter than usual, the Fry's grocery store was not very crowded, just a lot of 60+ people inside as they let the older crowd in first. They had most items on the shelves including toilet paper. Went to buy gas it was $2.39 a gallon, but I had .40 cents off a gallon with my fry's card, haven't paid $1.99 a gallon for a while. Went to sprouts it was empty of shoppers and the shelves were stocked. There were cops were just sitting in the parking lot talking, so I guess there were no emergencies happening at 7;30 in the morning. Not hearing sirens or any big disasters going on lately, but a friend on the PVPD says a few dust ups in Walmart a couple of times a day with people fighting over the last pork chop or roll of toilet paper.

My wife and I drove into Annapolis, MD yesterday just for some fresh air and were surprised to see as many folks out walking, running and riding bikes as we did. A couple of places were open for take-out food orders only but, it was encouraging to see everyone keeping their distances and still enjoying the mild weather. We walked around the harbor and watched a skipjack dock and fed some ducks. That's about it. Normally, downtown Annapolis is jam-packed on a Sunday afternoon. It felt good to stretch the old legs a bit and not deal with a huge crowd and nowhere to park.

Everyone is hunkered down over here, except for all those people out walking, running, and cycling. Governor has issued a stay-at-home order for this part of the state, and has forced many businesses to close.

I have a hunch that things may start to get ugly soon. Rent will be due in a few days, and a lot of people are laid off. The local soup kitchens are already getting overwhelmed.

On the brite side, gas prices are down to $2/gallon, and traffic is almost nonexistent. I need to do a road trip.

I wonder if this is part of the 'plan'? Seems to me the virus response is a bit overboard.

Makes a tax donkey very curious.
demonrats said again and again this is their chance to push their agendas.. socialism is part of that right?

My area is characterized by people driving around and more walkers than I see during the summer. My wife and I walked in a local, wooded, park yesterday. We wore masks, touched nothing and were very careful; we didn’t see another mask.
