2020-04 COVID-19 Part 2

The days and weeks all sort of meld together. Our routine is pretty similar day-to-day. The only variation is food and perhaps our workout routine. Work, switch midday for who gets the nicer desk, eat, graze, etc. Saturday morning, a lap on Grandeur Peak, a 3200′ hike 3 miles from our doorstep. Miscellaneous house things. It all blends together.

One thing I have considered lately is that these restrictions on normal life seem like a burden and that they are stifling. However, I think this perspective is born from having a healthy dose of privilege to this point. I can imagine that even this restrictive circumstance we find ourselves in is enviable for less fortunate people in the world, pandemic or no. So look on the bright side, things could be much worse, and are for many people out there.

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.

Work Trip to Anaheim

September 28 thru October 1, 2015

At the end of September I took a work trip to Anaheim for a seminar on composites.  It was good, but short.  Hard to believe this is what everyday life is like for some people.
