@Snowpuppy 

 

You got me on both your points. Not many "spring breakers" hit Nebraska. Work? Retired so long almost forgot the meaning of the word. But!!

 

I am not a "go with the flow person". Were I still working/around hundreds on my job/kids galore around youth hockey games/drag racing around thousands, etc. etc?  Nothing about what I am saying here or have said in other posts about this virus would be 1 word different.

 

Lived my previous umpteen decades doing what I feel I can control in respect to contracting illnesses and pay little attention to those over which I have no control. Right now I am exactly the same person saying exactly the same things I was saying way back when. Your statement might apply to some, but not to this old fart.

 Did you move to Florida or were you born there?

I disagree.  Spring breaks have already started. My flights to Florida over the weekend were crammed full with college student aged young people and families headed south. The Atlanta airport was the busiest I’ve seen it on a weekend in a long time. I’m currently on a barrier island in the Sarasota area and it’s busy, busy, busy with lodgings full and restaurant lines long. Those who were planning to travel for break are still doing it. Quite frankly, the only place I’m seeing the “I’m stocking up, staying home and living in fear” response is here on the Q boards.

@FrostyBabe1    Perfectly said and very true.  To me this an indication, the poster need to find some activity to keep her busy.

@Snowpuppy, I think some people are overreacting and I do work outside the home. And I am going on a cruise at the end of April.  And for the record, I have been to bike week once.  Smiley Happy

In my area we have an outbreak and I am noticing smaller crowds in shopping places except Costco where everyone has gone to stock up.

Re: Not happy about Spring Break.

DH and I are in Las Vegas for the week.   We wash our hands frequently and don't worry. Btw we too were at the ultimate bike week (Sturgis) once and had a ball, we'd go again in a heartbeat.  You do know that many professionals and business owners go to motorcycle events (especially since 50k and up for nice bikes).
