2020-03 COVID-19 Part 1

No need in pointing out the obvious changes in March for the US and the rest of the world.

Carly started required work-from-home (WFH) around March 8, 2020. As of the end of 2019 I am no longer at Blue Ice and not at a new full-time job. I have some contract work right now, thus I am also WFH. We have been trying to act a bit more conservatively than the local requirements. For no reason other than to just minimize our potential impact to the community. Since we are relatively young and more importantly, fit, we feel our personal risk is low from the disease. Nevertheless, we’ve opted to forgo traveling outside our immediate area. The farthest we have gone is up Big Cottonwood for a ski day. While our skiing is typically on the conservative side, we’ve been more conscious of our choices to avoid injury and therefore increasing exposure to ourselves or first responders.

As a result of being home nearly all the time save for a weekly grocery store trip and exercising, we’ve been making a lot of food at home. Stuff that we typically wouldn’t have the time or energy to do. On leaving my job at the end of 2019, one of my goals in 2020 was to take more photos and of things I typically don’t photograph. Being housebound has made that both difficult and more interesting. One result of these two things is I have more pictures of food, something the world probably doesn’t need. But, these photos are more for me personally, so I’m going to post some anyway.

Given that the bulk of humanity is under government orders to stay home and eliminate any unneeded travel, there are quite a few stay-at-home photo project ideas on the web. I’ve decided to pick and choose some aspects from some of them and post a few photos here. The vast majority of them will likely not make it up here simply because they won’t be all that interesting, but the idea is that they are building skills.

My intent is to post approximately every week or two, but that may go up or down depending on the volume of photos I feel like posting.
