Realy just more than over the whole howl at 8 pm thing.  Scares my cat and livestock as some of the locals have the coyote yips down, so much so that I at first went out and yelled and threw a few things in that direction to get the coyotes to move on -- and this all goes on for 5 minutes at least.  Give it a break.  We see video clips of Italy apartment dwellers making music together on balconies, and I get the animals running scared due to howls and yips.

Well I just admit that I am a rebel. I never went into lockdown , never put on a.make or gloves. Now I live very rural and the 2 counties that I work in are heavy population centers.  Only 16 cases between them and only  5 still active . Call me crazy but I'm doing fine.

Texas Governor said his stay at home order would expire May 31. Various Mayors and county governments have called BS on that and locally extended their own order until June 10. Personally I agree with them. Texas covid cases are increasing since the state reopened though the timing of the increases seems to make it uncertain they were caused by the reopening. The lockdown hasn't noticeably effected us but has caused my not to maintain supplies of some items I had in storage, even to toss some of it though there was nothing wrong with it other than a taste we just couldn't abide, stuff wasn't out of it's marked best by date.

I agree that those of us that can, would be a good idea to stay hunkered down.
Ok to go ahead and do your thing, but stay masked up.
This has been a decent trial run on using our supplies.

The worker at ours said they have a lot of DT show up there. Not necessarily the bristol stuff, but lots of canned goods.

I think ours has opened back up. It closed in March sometime. Lack of donations to keep up with demand.
