500 Days

I remember it pretty clearly, walking out one day with my boss and the question from him was basically… “Are we really going to lock this place down for this?”. We of coarse did…as much as we could as we still had to keep the lights on. We went down to essential staffing and for the most part, I’ve been working from home for 500 days total. This isn’t all work days, this is actual calendar days since 3/17/2020 when I started the lock down.

I could go into all the things that have happened in that time. And all the things that could have been avoided. There are a lot of lessons that will be learned out of this pandemic. I know for my family, we are being very cautious and safe. We’ve seen what a respiratory illness does to our son Evan. We hope you have avoided sickness and sorrow that has unfortunately come for far too many.

Stay safe everyone. Let’s do what we need to so we are in a different spot after the next 500 days.
