  1. Great question.  I have lots of paper and pens, shelves of books, an acoustic guitar, and view that just doesn’t quit.  I don;t have a southern exposure, so I haven’t looked into solar powered anything — perhaps I should.  But if Newton was able to shun his computer for an emergency, well — that’s good enough for me.

    I figure that this is the timeframe in which I would be visited by a time-travelling physicist in order to rescue humanity at a nexus distributed across points in the same timeline from all existential threats at once — we would have to mine other timelines for the purest forms of information and distribute it across this universe, creating local pockets of flat (Omega = 1) sustainable space-time.

    Or maybe I would just write about it, and sell it to the cavemen who replace us.

  2. Since my son, daughter & son-in-law are all working remotely, and they live in NYC (and daughter has a doggie who needs to get out of a tiny Queens apartment) they will be coming here for a few days soon.

    An introvert mom’s dream: quarantined with all her kids!

    Couldn’t find any toilet paper but I got a case of wine. No need to face the apocalypse sober.

    I was out shopping today and picked up a jar of bait-grade caviar.  Told the guy next to me I would go out in style.

    So it is just a normal day for you, Ace.

    I’ll be fine as long as the local  ‘authorities’ don’t get hysterical and close the liquor stores.

    Were this the fall, I’d say college football and cheerleaders. Hopefully the sports shutdown will be over by next fall, or I’ll lose my mind.

    Mike, how will we know that you have lost it? Will you become an Oregon Ducks fan? (This is how I know someone has no reason to live and a few marbles short of a pound cake.)

  6. I’m not worried about provisions, at least not yet. I’ve got enough TP and other stuff to last a while. I’m more worried about the social consequence. I can work exclusively from home if I must, but I don’t like to. I am not sure if I should go into work or not. I can if I want to… but should I? I’m just not sure. I already feel isolated too much of the time. Going into work means that I can talk to people face to face. It gives me a bit of social time, and I really need that. I’m now worried that I might not get much of it for a while. 😟

  7. Not much- I work from home, we get groceries delivered in our suburb, have a gas generator for power outages and enough supplies for quite a while.

    As long as I have internet, life goes on.

    Spent the morning advising my small business clients on coping with the political overreach for virus theatre.

    I expect the extreme measures will have a short shelf life of about three weeks.

  8. Well, I got my answer yesterday evening. An email from the dean of the college said that we are “strongly encouraged to work remotely.” If we need to come to campus we should socially distance ourselves.

    TKC: I really hope you are right.

    I’m not that crazy! 😉
