    Yup, I usually am up and out of the house by 7:30ish and am back home before 10am. Just depends on which path I take

    Ugh. Wanted to make a new drift tool to easily install m20 intermediate bearings, but the metal supply house is closed. :( Didn't think a place like that would be closed - now gotta order online and hope that even shows up. Tried ordering some carbide inserts for the lathe yesterday and the site let you go through untilt he cart to tell you nothing is shipping out. Grrr.

    On another note, it's funny how little things can make you feel so good. The lights burned out in my office and the landlord is dragging his feet with the repair. Been sitting in a dark office whenever I need to do something - or have the front door open for side light. Got some organizing done at the back of the shop around the lathe and welder - happen to find an old pair of fixtures that I could just rob the ballasts from. Between the cleaning up and a now bright office, the day is starting out well. :)

    The strength of steel remains essentially unchanged until about 600°F. The steel retains about 50% of its strength at 1100°F. The steel loses all of its capacity when it melts at about 2700°F. However, for design purposes, it is usually assumed that all capacity is lost at about 2200°F.

    I'm used to people stripping shelves and acting foolish when things start to get a little bit sideways. I'm a Florida man. So I did what I do before hurricane season, I bought my "hurricane food" and other essentials early (early February) so now I don't have to go shopping for weeks if people get particularly panicky. I also got some masks (well I have had them for a while) among other things that people panic bought and stripped the shelves of immediately upon things getting a little scary like alcohol and sanitizer. Not so much getting ready to catch it or treat people (beyond my wheelhouse), but making it so that I don't have to deal with people's erratic and panicked behavior. I also prompted my Mom and Grandmother to get some stuff set aside so when the grocery stores started getting raided they were good to go.

    Now all I have to deal with is being home a whole hell of a lot. Online engineering school sucks and it's much harder to focus when you're home day after day. The only thing I wish I had the foresight to have done before this was pick up a barbell, weights and bench on craigslist, I miss lifting weights.

    There was a warehouse fire a few blocks from my shop. No planes involved and the steel roof girders melted in half after less than an hour of burning. Rode my bike down the block just as it was collapsing.

    Jesus this again.... You dont have to melt steel to weaken it to the point of failure with intense heat when its under 80+ % of working load ;)

    how have you prepared for this?

That will give us a better Idea of just how large the mortality rate is, I suspect this bug has been running rampant in the US for much longer than the last 2 months.
    It's quite possible it's been here for much longer. Some suggest September/October.
    In S. Korea it took a massive public event before it really began with community spread.

    Antibody detection may be a test we all take at some point.

    Also, this whole thing will be debated for years.

    The cases we see in the medical wards are the worst of the worst and have taken a while to get that way.

    I am not saying this is no big deal but I do think it's been blown out of proportion and way more people have had it than. anyone realizes.
