Yesterday I woke up in the early morning (~4am) and was feeling cold and had uncontrollable shakes. Took my temperature and it was normal. Decided to move to the guest bedroom to be safe and limit exposure for my wife. I started to feel nauseous and ended up throwing up within the hour. I got a little sleep in and woke up with around a 101.6 degree temperature. My fever broke later in the day after some rest and Tylenol and, I mostly feel better so hoping I’m alright, but I’d be lying if I said that wasn’t a little scary.

Today, the Governor of Virginia ordered: Cancelled school for the rest of the academic school year Restaurants are limited to curbside/takeout and delivery only Essentially all congregation areas / brick and mortar retail are closed – gyms, theaters, fitness centers, salons/barbers, bowling, you name it Essential places of business can remain open – medical supplies, grocery stores, etc. … somewhat interestingly, beer/wine/liquor stores are part of this “essential” list. I’m ok with that … even though I’m not really a frequent drinker.

Virginia has 3 deaths now. My county, Goochland, has its second confirmed case. Testing still isn’t happening on a widespread basis. Stayed home all day today. I did get outside to remove the snow plow from my lawn tractor and reinstalled the mower deck. Felt good to be outside and doing something.

I forgot in my previous entry, not sure how, but there are massive shortages of things like toilet paper in stores. It’s heavily talked about. There are plenty of questions like, “why is everyone hoarding toilet paper? It doesn’t make you have to poop.” Yeah … that’s true. But with it being in such short supply, I’m not going to fault anyone that buys two packages if they find it when they’d normally just buy one …
