COVID-19 (APR 21 2020) April 21 2020, 4 Comments
On December 31st of 2019 my wife and I were at a hospital in Coeur d'Alene Idaho. She was recovering from an operation there for a couple of days. That night I was watching the news while she was asleep. The new Coronavirus that came to be called SARS COVID-19 was beginning to plague Wuhan China. With Wuhan being so far away, at the time I didn't worry too much about it.
Now things are very different all over the world. There really is no place that hasn't been affected by this virus. At the time of this writing the worldwide death toll is at 176,926 with over 2.5 Million confirmed other cases. We have been advised to stay in our home and that is what we are doing.
Being trapped at home for weeks has been tough for everyone. I started this blog today as a way for me to have an outlet to the outside world other than the grocery store. Living in Montana we aren't as vulnerable to plagues as metro areas (only 10 deaths statewide so far). The economy has been turned upside down here in the U.S. and the authorities are scrambling to try and re-open businesses without risking more lives. I'm sure it's going to be a while before things return to 'normal'.
So until then, stay home, wash your hands, and be safe!
Oh and here's a picture of a deer from our backyard -
