Today marks the end of another school and work week that is very different from what we are accustomed to.

For the most part there is no big looking forward to the weekend because there’s really no place to go and certainly no events of any kind.  To make matters worse for those who feel “cooped up” it looks like we’ll have a decent amount of rain during this final weekend of March which might add to the misery.

As numbers of those who have been infected by COVID-19 soar we are also more aware of those around us who have become sick and sadly when all is said and done we will likely all have some connection to someone who has died.

Despite this there are still many who continue to move about like little has changed and are looking for ways to challenge the order to stay home when possible.  Some feel the need to go to a supermarket or food store every day because that’s part of their routine even if it’s just to pick up an item or two that they really don’t need.

Can you say Covidiot?

I only need to look at my workplace to know how much things have changed.  I’m in my office shortly after 4 a.m. and outside of the on-air morning talent it’s very quiet until around 8:30 a.m.   At around that time we would usually have another 25 people fill our offices, especially on Friday which is “Bagel Day.”

Instead of 25 it’s been one or maybe two people joining me in the building with everyone else working from home.  On most days I am the only person on the third floor and the only noise comes from my TV.  It is very surreal but WOBM and Townsquare Media is practicing social distancing by encouraging anyone who can work from home to do so.

Me, I’m old school and feel the need to be here to do what I can.  By the way, like everything else “Bagel Day” is postponed till further notice.
