    First, this thread is not about making light of the COVID19 situation or measures being taken to mitigate its spread. Instead it’s about what y’all are doing if you have some down time at home. Please don’t bring politics or any other BS into this.

    I’m home because I am considered a “high risk” dude were I to get it so my employer sent me home and I’m on recall if needed. Since I have some time on my hands I decided to get started on firewood for next winter. Had some blocks left over from last spring, once I get them split I’ll move on to buzzing up the new log pile. Here’s what I got done before getting rained out up here in the northeast.

    Grilling outside. Some video games. Cutting firewood My work isn’t too affected. Trying to avoid going in town for anything. My old man is a high risk so I’m trying not to carry it
    Laying real low.

    Yup same here on the laying low. I’m sure most of us, if not all of us have someone in our lives that’s more vulnerable to this virus, we all need to do our part to flatten the curve.

    My job isn't being shut down after latest announcement in PA. I install and monitor/calibrate automotive breathalyzers, so I've been wiping down with Clorox spray a lot. It'll be nice to give that a slight break. I ended up moving the 2 apts. that were scheduled for tues and wed to Friday and took vacation. So in these next 6 days I hope to really get after some oak I have laying on the ground at the bike shop boss' place. Little millin' and a whole lotta firewood to get. Plus sawing for my dad. He got permission from his neighbor to cut all he wants. I'll get some pics but there's lots to get there too.
    Also hope to get some two wheel therapy. Both activities that don't involve interaction with others.

    Been working 50hour weeks. Have some scheduled tome off already so it worked out. Taking my wife and kids camping. Plenty of work to do around the house but it’s time to unplug

    Got some milling done. This was a punky stick of walnut. Nice spalting...gonna stabilize it with resin and probably make knife handles.
    Can't get any more pics to upload....I'm feeling an internet crash with all the people using it at once because everyone's home.

    The WHO deemed my job important to sustaining life so I'm still working. My wife is a nurse so she is also! I have a 440 rebuild for a buddy that's a climber keeping me busy. Now I need parts! Hope they come in this afternoon! May do some splitting and stacking on Sunday.

    if I knew I was going to live past my now age of 26 then I would have looked after myself better. I can't even 'get It up' anymore. J/K
    I am double that age. Yeah Al... I am at least old enough to know what an 'Afternoon delight' is. The Song?
    Good for you man.

    It was a realization today when I went into the grocery store in south England. I teared up for a bit, just the realization. Signs, continuous announcements on limitations. Shelves were bare.
    I cry for the people, I don't cry for me. I mean, it was a bitçh to get rid of Corona the first time??? I'm isolated (as usual cutting now. If I see a wild bore on my felling quarter or otherwise then I'm going to bite 'im in the throat.
    It will be a dog fight. It's instinct. I don't have to practice on sheep....er ...um.. unless I feel like Lamb tonight?

    I am going to the drop site tomorrow and seeing if there is anything to cut and if the ground is dry enough to walk around. Likely, no one else will be there. That's all the encouragement that I need to get something done.
