    Ohio has reached defcon level retard

    First schools, now bars and restaurants are closed. Pretty sure were headed to complete lockdown by the end of the week.

    Gonna have to stick up on cheap beer cause I see tons of boredom drinking in my future. Ima drive my wife crazy. SIL from NC is coming up tomorrow since they are shit down too.

    Told my wife to tell the boss she has a mild cough the boys gave her to see what he would say. I think they will close her work by Tuesday.

    The media and closures are already getting to the wife. She is worried about the daycare, even though through it all kids have not been effected.

    Have a feeling this is gonna get much worse before it gets any better. Gonna be a rough few weeks, I have a short attention span as is.

    Your not alone. Im WNY, as of today schools are canceled until 4/20. Have a 6 and 7 yr old in school so this should be interesting. Shes a RN, got begged to work tonight, so now shes working 7-12 just to help out. Called me when she got there and was speechless as how busy it was. Drs are making you call ahead or just sending you to hospital regardless of whats said on tv. Stocked up on boos and food. Shes getting worried about everything because the media wont give it a rest. Going to be an interesting go round the next 5 weeks. If you dont hear from me in the near future, it wasnt corona that killed me it was my wife.

    Yesterday the governor shut down schools for students but we were told maintenance would carry on as normal. I figured what the heck, would could catch up on PMs. Went in this morning and was told to go home for two weeks.

    That's ridiculous, how can they call a bar a non essential service?

    Got sent home this morning. Asked for volunteers. I’m sick anyway...must be some other bug...don’t think it is the corona thing.

    The on call guy will probably get a few calls and they might call me on commercial but we just have not had any calls coming in other than just the odd no heat.

    We can’t hardly get anyone to schedule a pm so they are rescheduling what we have till a week or so down the road.

    Churches shutting down, some businesses... schools are out.

    My God... what is happening ???

    Looks like you don’t have to have the bug to become a victim of it.....

    Up here in Columbus the phones died today and I’m going to say 75% of our businesses have closed, are working remote, or have a no contractor policy in effect already.

    Guys will start sitting come Wednesday.

    Schools shut down here till the end of the month. The Governor doesn't want a gathering of more than 10 people and they need to stay 8' away from each other. The supply chain is having issues keeping up with unwarranted demand. The closest case is 50 miles away but with the way people commute now it may as well be next door. The pioneer spirit that built this part of the country seems to have departed for parts unknown.

    It is sad to see a nation built on self reliance brought to it's knees by selfishness.

    Makes one wonder if somehow the Internet could go down, be taken down or censored in the name of maintaining calm. Just wondering.

    My guess is this will actually help the internet in rural areas. With schools going online and service being so poor in these areas the kids won't have a chance without major improvement.

    We will see. Im one of those people in a rural area and it sucks. We need the internet where we live to use WiFi calling. Im doubtful of it though.

    How is your cell service? Specifically AT&T or Sprint?

    I live rural as well and came up with a solution using a company called OTR Mobile. It’s been an awesome service and now we have high speed internet service.
