It was a weird sunset last night, the clouds turned everything purple.
I didn't do much of anything today, mostly just sat around and depressed myself reading about the Coronavirus on the Internet. I didn't have much choice since it rained for most of the day, it was raining when I woke up and pretty much kept it up till late afternoon, not a Florida type toad-floater, just a steady light rain that put the kibosh on any outdoor activities.
With all that time to sit around and think I gave a lot of thought to what I should do about going to Colorado this Summer. If things are going the way they are now with the Coronavirus, going to Denver and boondocking in my daughter's yard doesn't sound like it would be my wisest move.
Exposing myself to all those people and especially kids who probably don't wash their hands as often as they should would be the exact opposite of what the CDC is recommending a 73-year-old such as myself should be doing.
I'm leaning heavily towards doing just what I'm doing now, which is self isolating and exposing myself to others as briefly and infrequently as possible. But it will be too hot in a couple of months to do that in the desert Southwest so I will have to head for cooler climes.
My property in the Colorado mountains would be a good place to self isolate and I am considering it but it does have a couple of problems. It's a long way to shopping, especially a Walmart which is about 40 miles away, and there's no Internet or phone service without driving for three or four miles, and its spotty even then. That means my main source of entertainment which is the Internet, and posting to my blog would be difficult to deal with, worst of all my family couldn't call me if they needed to.
I've given these things some thought but not knowing what the situation is going to be in late May early June when I would normally head back to Denver it's hard to tell whats the best thing for all concerned. But I do know one thing for certain, I probably have a better chance of getting Coronavirus because of my age and I couldn't live with myself thinking I may have given it to my Grand-kids.
Even though the skies looked pretty much like this the entire day, I ran my amp sucking 17 inch laptop all day, didn't try to conserve electricity in any way, and my batteries still got charged up to 100% before dark. I'm loving my BattleBorn lithium iron batteries.
