Staying Home Order

An eerie quietness drapes over the day.  Streets are empty.  People deserted.  Where did everyone go?  The answer: staying at home.  Washington DC along with the two neighboring states (Maryland & Virginia) is under a shutdown order, effective yesterday.

Almost like a scene from the apocalypse movie, only more weird in real life.  Normal rush hour traffics all but vaporized overnight.  So did the familiar hustle & bustle sounds that I am accustomed to, the white noise. With the exceptions of grocers and gas stations, most stores are closed.

I have to pinch myself to make sure this is not a dream.  But seriously even the birds have vanished.  I wonder if they too got the stay home order.

How is social distancing working for you?

  1. Hi Terry – I felt the birds had gone too – keep listening – you’ll hear them – its as if we need to recalibrate our ears 🙂
