With most public indoor sites closed, all we can do is go to outdoor places like Niagara Falls at the falls. There is almost nobody there! Crowd free photos!
How are others keeping busy beside work if it is still open?

I spent 2 weeks up there on your side for work some time back . What a great place . We were stationed in St. Catherines but hit the Casino and HardRock every night . The American side kinda sucks compared to the north side . :)

The Casino is shut down from the virus for now. We won't be going across the border to Niagara Falls NY for a while as they are closing the border today. Going to be hard on lots of businesses here.
Work continues for me.
Take care and social distance yourselves.
Cheers

Some of the views from US side are great however, plus in some spots you can get 'up close'. Next time perhaps we can have a local gathering, seem to be plenty of us in the vicinity.

I am working on home automation using Home Assistant and Tasmota devices. Sometimes I need a project like that to keep my mind off other things. Maching again next week though. Thankfully retired since 2007 so not working is not an option :)

Fortunately I'm retired and don't have to worry about monthly income. I do feel for the younger families. Its going to be tough on them.
Living the North has the advantage that I'm used to hunkering down in the winter months.
Price of gas is pretty low for my neck of the woods, I'd like to stock up on some, but no where to store it, and it'll probably go bad even with stabilizer.

$2.09 a gallon here still and hasn't moved . Deisel is hanging at $2.55 also .

My son's GF lives up in Toronto right next to the stadium . He and she both travel what seems like weekly up and back . Any idea on how long this border closing is going to last ?

Going to continue raising everywhere for the next while and lots could be sick and not realize it as well.

We're just happy to have regular under $3.00, $2.65 is the cheapest in Redding. I hope the Russians and Saudis don't resolve their squabble too soon. Of course, U.S. producers will probably start capping wells at these prices.

Interestingly, we drove by the entrance to Lassen Nat'l. Park yesterday. The road is barricaded. Nothing is open in the park through the winter anyway, self-pay at the entrance station and the road thru the park is closed. No real reason to block the entrance. Would be nice to go do a little snowshoeing around the lake.

We can take the dog for a walk on public streets but not into a nature park. Call it weird.
