Some of you know that we volunteer in our daughter's classroom when we're here in the desert. Of course, school is closed right now, with no definite timeframe on re-opening. 85+% of the kids in that school are on free or reduced lunch and all students get free breakfast. That is two meals a day those kids can count on. Yesterday, the school admin decided to offer food to those families, based on children under 18. Today, our daughter volunteered to help with that... only 3 volunteers on two different shifts were allowed (to keep contact down), as well as the food staff (non-food-staff are not allowed to handle food). The families just had to show up by car... hundreds showed up. In the rain. Steph's principal was directing traffic; Steph (our daughter) was the go-fer/coordinator to keep things flowing. More people showed up than anticipated, and at the proposed cut-off time, it was estimated that there were still 140 cars in line. The workers and volunteers kept going. I have serious concerns for the families of not just this school, but all those kids who depend on the support provided by their school. This school even has a summer program where the kids can come in for breakfast and take a lunch with them. There is a rumble that school may not restart until late July (their normal start time for the new school year). It is hard to learn on an empty belly. The word we are getting from back home (South Padre Island area) is the spring break kids are still gathering. The city is shutting down all bars and restaurants tonight at 10:00pm. As of now, they can re-open as long as they can keep patrons 8 feet apart. No bands, no DJs. The first confirmed CV case has been reported there; that person has gone back to Michigan. All kinds of contact while in SPI. Handling changes? I tend to be a hand-shaking, hugging kinda guy. Changes are happening at a rapid pace. I think the Blonde has gone to high alert... she is tough, but is worried about me. I caught some kind of bug (probably when we were around the school kids) and have had a crappy cold. I have asthma, so any malady tends to make that flare up. She knows that puts me in a higher risk group and has "grounded" me from going to the store, picking up food, etc.
