Does make me think I need to start checking the terms and conditions on some of my tickets before purchasing.

Hey, on the upside, booked my hotel for the SF show today! Hotel prices in the city are great right now... as expected. Just hoping we get past this CV crap soon.

I wish you the best of luck. Souix Falls is right on the cusp of when they say it might start getting better so I guess we’ll see

Re: General Tool Discussion

Honestly, at this point I'm just glad I didn't book a hotel yet

Re: General Tool Discussion

Doing ok. Work still surprisingly busy for me. I go out during the day occasionally but just to get food (and some rays of sunshine). If I understand right, L.A area is on full lock-down until April 18th before they re-assess situation.

How is everyone else?

Re: General Tool Discussion

Good. We aren't on lockdown here, yet. I'm still working but my work is closed to the public. Pretty much work, go home, and have only left otherwise for groceries. Pretty strange being home all weekend and less than 10 cars driving by.

Re: General Tool Discussion

We were just placed on lockdown.

Nobody on the road
Nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air
Summer's out of reach

Re: General Tool Discussion

The California Capital is in full lockdown. I went to go to the grocery store last night and there were police stationed at the doors.

Went for a cruise Sunday and the parks were pretty full. Today they closed the parks.

Thank goodness for Fear Inoculum.

Re: General Tool Discussion

Up here in Seattle we’re trying to lock it down, but you can basically go out if you want. Most all business were deemed “essential” and trying to get Washingtonians to stay inside when the sun is out turns out to be a bit of a joke. Nobody is working, so parks & waterfronts are all full of people. My hotel is shut down until 4/16 so I’ve just been keeping busy with chores and projects. REALLY hoping they don’t have to postpone anymore tour dates. I wish they’d be more aggressive with closures to just be done with it instead of dragging it out. I have Section 8 floor seats (Dead center 6 rows in front of the sound booth) @ Tacoma Dome, and I’d still really like to do that.

Re: General Tool Discussion

Yea, I can't believe the amount of people not heeding the warnings. My neighbors were letting their kids run all around our neighborhood with all the other kids and acting like nothing is wrong. Our Governor is one of the governor's getting massive praise from Trump, so I highly doubt he issues a shelter in place order for the state, which would close my work.

Re: General Tool Discussion

Couple of big tours getting postponed until next year. Roger Waters for one. Bummer!

And I believe Tool dates in June will also be postponed.

Ah well, gives me time to finally get through Jedi Fallen Order. Have Doom and then Last Of Us II coming, too. That's my survival kit... along with cold beer and online yoga!
