Commonwealth of Virginia's Stay-At-Home order extended through June 10. People are only allowed to leave their homes for "extremely limited circumstances" (e.g. food, medicine, care of family, certain types of work.) Even doctors practices are largely closed except for urgent needs.

Great to see the varied pictures here. Wonderful cinnabar, Jordi.

Twenty-second day, Saturday April 4, 2020 in Barcelona

Hopeful news today for Spain. Officially and also according to independent studies Spain has started the remission phase of infections and deaths.

As the Eurasian magpie in the photo it seems that after so many fateful days we are starting to take flight...

Great news, Jordi. Parts of the US are approximately 12 days behind Spain.

Michael,

Gwen and I missed it. We were in the hotel on a wake-up call list if it became visible but did not get the call. Ya'll were fortunate.

Stay safe and healthy.

Don

PostPosted: Apr 05, 2020 14:01    Post subject: Stay at home - Coronavirus / Covid-19 / Tot Anirà Bé  

Twenty-third day, Sunday April 5, 2020 in Barcelona

135 fewer deaths than yesterday in Spain and although 674 more deaths are a drama, at least we see how day by day it seems to be somewhat less dramatic.
However, however... in the street you can still see old people who go for just walk without mask and without gloves, and you can also see unbecoming behaviors.

In any case, it is admirable the containment of the vast majority who do not go out on the street at all, who are maintaining the social peace effectively even after spending so many days locked up and by those particular people like the one in this old people's home that she had the good idea to stimulate with a drawing of a rainbow between clouds and the phrase "Tot Anirà Bé" (Everything Will Go Well).
Little things, but everything helps now.

Patagonia


This range is called the Fitz Roy range - it is the logo for the Patagonia clothing company - and one other tid-bit:

Between 12 and 16 February 2014, Tommy Caldwell and Alex Honnold completed the first ascent of the much discussed "Fitz Traverse", climbing across the iconic ridge-line of Cerro Fitz Roy and its satellite peaks in southern Patagonia. The route is 5 kilometers long and has approximately 4000 meters of vertical elevation, with routes ranging in difficulty up to 5.11d

you also may recall the academy award winning movie "Free Solo" which featured Alex Honnold climbing El Capitan in Yosemite National Park without ropes or safety gear. This is possibly the most difficult of all athletic achievements..

Jordi - thanks for the status update for Espana. We all hope for the best.

Not sure if you are aware but in the major US cities - especially in New York - at 7PM everyone goes out on their balconies or where ever they can - to applaud, holler, bang pots/pans and make as much noise as they can as a tribute to the first line medical workers. It's become a tradition that is very moving. It would be great to see this started at all major cities around the world.

Seventh day, Friday March 20, 2020 in Barcelona

A week has passed since the "Estado de Alarma" was announced. We already know what it is and how it hurts and without forgetting that the worst is still coming, we have to pass the mourn the best we can and not forget that with the Spring will come the desire for Life.



At 8 PM every day the people who are locked up at home go out to the balconies, windows and terraces and applaud, launch fireworks and make all kinds of sounds, and do it dedicated to the health care people, doctors and all the personnel related with the world of medicine who are struggling daily in the face of the horror.

@R Saunders - Great pics of a Russell wedge and winged snow plow.

My grandfather engineered these and others up in the snowbelts of central and northern New York when I was a kid. These units were not powered, and required one or two engines to provide locomotion, depending on how much snow was on the rails. They did require an engineer and crew inside to operate the tongue, flanger, and wings. It was usually a Maintainance (not misspelled) Engineer, which my Grandfather was.

Imagine the sensation of getting rammed along the railway at-speed by 300,000-600,000 pounds of locomotive engine, blinded by flying snow, without any control. Communication with the engine was using code cards and flags from the tiny cupola on the top of the plow's cockpit. Good times!

The pic is a postcard scan from my collection. Predates my grandfather, but it is the railroad he started with, which became part of the New York Central, now part of CSX.

Oh, and I collect "real photo" postcards of upstate and northern New York.
