    To top all this virus stuff off, we had a 5.7 earthquake just west of Salt Lake city this morning and a bunch of aftershocks are still going. To put that in perspective, the last time we had an earthquake that big near there was 1992. So I am betting we'll see an increase in the local panic level up here. Probably won't affect the Moab area much. But who knows.

    I felt a 4.0 just several minutes ago, I'm about 100 miles from the epicenter. It was weird, the bed shook just once. First time I had ever felt an earthquake, usually I am dead asleep or busy doing something and don't notice. Even the 5.7 this morning I was passed out, though I heard one of our cats meowing loudly, and apparently our dog was freaking out too.

    Right now if something changes and things begin to reopen I am flexible enough right now to still come for the original dates. Would probably be hard for me to swing September/October.

    Been through numerous earthquakes in Cali. Some are big jolts, some are shakers and some are rollers. I have been driving through big rollers and never even felt them even though I could hear people on the other end of the phone call yelling.

    So there's a slight chance that Moab lifts this restriction in 14 days, roughly March 31/April 1 but it seems to be doubtful. I would think that the number of US and/or Utah cases of coronavirus would have to take a significant dip in that time and that's just not very much time.

    For Sept/Oct, the https://www.moabhappenings.com/events%20year.htm suggests that Sept 27-Oct 3 would be ideal. While we'd normally start on Oct 4 (Neo's birthday), we'd run up against their gem show at the end of the week which could adversely affect hotel rates.

    For those with reservations, especially condo reservations, please review and see if the fall might work.

    Should work for me. We now have 5 confirmed cases in Waco and we had none yesterday. I don't see things improving within 14 days. I think things will actually, likely be worse in 14 days than they are now. Hope not but we do have some momentum in the wrong direction.

    Now as testing gets rolled out more broadly the undiagnosed cases that have been unaccounted for recently are going to get identified so the numbers are going to start to soar. I think watching the trends of critical cases and deaths are the numbers that will really tell you if we are turning the tide or not.

    My work schedule is trashed now. Those dates are safe for me now but things are changing every day.

    I am in favor of moving it to the fall. This crisis has only started and as much as I would hope and like it to reverse course in the next 2 weeks, I would venture to guess that in the next 2 weeks things will be much worse than they are today. The sooner we pull the plug, the more likely that people can cancel reservations without losing their money.

    Most everyone is providing a refund on cancellations even for prepaid non refundable reservations. I canceled one for Jazzfest in New Orleans this morning. I think they will not reverse course before EJS because that would ruffle a lot of feathers but maybe they would by the time our week comes around.

    We are in bad shape with the virus. I will likely be closing my business and am looking for a different job. It would be nice if things settled down and I could get out there in the fall.

    Just got the 4" lift and 35" tires on the ZR2 and this happens. I think we will have to sell the ZR2 before we even get to have any fun with it.

    That sucks. I fear there will be many more bad stories before this is all over with.

    2020 Black Sheep Week - April 12-18

    Try to be patient. Just heard a guy on the radio say that they gave 40 people with the virus in France the combination of a Zpack and a rheumatoid arthritis medicine that are both generic and widely available. Completely cured in 6 days.
