I might be one of a few having a somewhat normal spring here in the great north woods of Wisconsin. The spring ritual of maple syruping leaves little time for social interaction other than that with my maple trees and dogs. A couple of cold days this weekend are giving me my first break in six weeks other than a two day trip to Peoria to see Drew and Vince and the next day to Indiana for syrup delivery the end of February. So far a good start to the season with about a third of a good crop already made. The snow was very deep making the tapping that much harder that and the fact that my body objects more to the abuse now than when I started 40 years ago. Telluride has been the carrot that has helped me get through the long maple season. The idea of summer without festivals almost unimaginable. I went to my first bluegrass festival in 1976, the second year is the one that hooked me. How is the lineup of John Hartford, Doc and Merle Watson, Bill Monroe, Earl Scruggs Review, J.D. Crowe, Ralph Stanley, Jimmy Martin, Mark O'Conner, New Grass Revival, Mac Wiseman, Josh Graves, Benny Martin, Bobby Smith, Grass Food & Lodging, Piper Road Spring Band and others. The Great Northern Bluegrass Festival Mole Lake 2nd Annual. So hopefully this will somehow be over before summer seeing that we have our town park tickets again and looking forward to seeing all our friends and another great lineup. But it definitely introduced the unknown into our lives when we prefer order and normal. Stay safe and take care of your friends and family.

Didn't realize you were in the north woods, MA or that maple syrup was actually behind your screen name!  Being from Chicago, I spent a lot of time near Eagle River over the summers when I was younger ... the whole area is one of the most scenic / peaceful parts of the midwest. 

Yeah, no festivals / shows is a big blow for sure, but have been trying to keep it in perspective.

At Home sick here in Utah. No test for this Cath lab RN. I ordered a 80$ mask from Canada. Hope it arrives by the time our census soars. Expecting to float back to my home  unit ICU where I worked for 10 years. Numbers from Italy almost 40% nosocomal rate...yikes. Good  news Utah gas a  healthier population. Enjoying the time home before the storm. Grateful for good friends.

I am well. Very well.

Sad to report that Rob Carney has the virus, and has been flown fron Crested Butte to Grand Junction to be put on a vent.
Also hearing that Rich Ganson may also be sick.

Do what you do, pray, hold in the light, send healing vibes., please.

Love You All,

Small world!  It's been a (very) long time since I've been there ... although was considering ordering some Dina Mia's the other day!  Unfortunately, shipping cost to Colorado puts it out of reach:

Rich Ganson definitely has coronavirus but he seems to be over the hump based on his post yesterday.  It's rough out there, folks.

Thanks Hooch.  Flower
Here's the update from Rob Carney's niece this morning, and also gives an indication of the long road this virus puts you on if it gets in your system.

"Daily Update -
He breathed for about 8 hours on his own yesterday and they are going to continue to lengthen the time. He is still having a lot of phlegm (I really hate that word!) and they are having to suction a lot so they aren't ready to fully let him be off the ventilator yet. We did start the conversation about what the next steps would look like if and when he has two negative Covid tests  - out of isolation/Covid unit to regular ICU then to the medical floor then to rehab facility, etc. Still a lot of caution from the doctor regarding being prepared for set backs and that the healing process will be long and arduous. Thank you to those who are sharing the posts with others and to those who have reached out. We cannot get anything into the hospital at this time so while I am thankful for the offers I would save them until when we can get them to him in the rehab facility."

Grand Junction folks, yes, Rob will be in your area for the time being.
