New Yorkers have now been ordered to stay at home. No going out except for groceries or medicine. Non-essential businesses are to close. No time frame was specified.
We bought milk yesterday but will be staying home from now on. We’re lucky that we have our property to hike and dog-walk on with little risk of encountering other humans. And there is certainly plenty to keep us busy.
Temp this morning was 28 and wicked chilly with moisture in the air. Supposed to be sunny today so I’ll probably start cleaning up the greenhouse and getting ready to start seeds. Thank goodness I bought a bunch of my planned garden items early...I imagine there will be a run on “self-sufficient” supplies soon.
