Took over some supplies to our parents today. Getting groceries delivered is still a bit of an ordeal these days.

The Governor of Virginia declared a “Stay at Home” order today for the state. People should only leave the house if it is essential. As he put it, me paraphrasing, there is a difference between needing to do something and wanting to do something. You should only leave your house if you need to. To the people congregating on our beaches and completely ignoring what everyone else is doing—you are being selfish.
