      Waiting for the ice to melt. We are still working, at the marina. We are considered a essential business as we can haul up to 150 ton commercial boats. Trying to get ready for launching....if this mess clears up!

        I'm hunkered in alone. Admiral is still stuck in AZ. Honey-do list is getting dusty.
        Thinking about boating.
        First ordering aluminum to repair our rail boat lift that was hurt in 2018 ice floods.
        Then ordering new windows for our river place basement finish.
        Then fix boat lift ..assuming river Miss. river goes down this year.
        Then continue basement remod.
        IA hasn't announced any ramp closures. I just need a 10 min window to sneak my boat onto the lift. ..maybe a midnight launch.

        So, right now I'm doing a lot of thinking and little else.

          The last suit you wear won't need any pockets. You might as well spend it on a boat.

              Minnesota is supposedly locked down. You can go to the grocery store, liquor store, post office, gas station, and hardware store.

                Essential business only, otherwise on lockdown.... NYS, Governor Cuomo.

                I'm deemed essential for my business which is deemed essential - medical contracts. So....I work from home until I need to physically go in...even then it has to be reviewed by Management and prioritized to determine when I might need to go in.

                Otherwise we're single handedly trying to keep the economy going....redid my youngest son's room (still needs a mattress), bought a new fridge as ours was pronounced on borrowed time yesterday, new laser printer as apparently I may be working from home for a good long time (and inkjet cartridges are stupid expensive), new shelving for basement to get that organized. Also planned out use of the stimulus money whenever we get it - new doors for the house (all 3), rewire the garage as its scary, etc.

                          We are essential also, but two of our people got laid off today, only two of us left, 'service techs' We do have a bunch of stuff to get done before launch season, if there is a launch season. Most of our boaters are from out of state.....
