I've heard airlines have cancelled up to 60% of the domestic flights and 90% of the international flights. I didn't really think about it untill you mentioned it but the shy has been eerily quiet.
Or maybe he didn't.By the way people that follow Nostradamus say he predicted this 500 years ago. I read the prediction a few days ago. It was absolutely chilling. He says before this is done it will kill millions.
I was supposed to fly out of Dulles yesterday morning. We canceled that flight last week. Fortunately the golf courses are still open (with myriad precautions and no clubhouse access) and there's plenty of room between me and the people I play with. I walk the course with my own cart. I don't come into contact with anyone. Walking that 7.5 miles a few times a week has been refreshing.We live about 6 miles from Dulles Airport - just about right under the flight path. Normal morning and evening traffic is a plane about every 60 seconds. Traffic is down probably 75% now. My sister-in-law 'escaped' from Malaysia last week and arrived Saturday evening. She said Dulles was empty. It is very similar to 9/11. That being said, a plane is flying over now - first one in about ten minutes.
If there's a silver llining, maybe all of us can appreciate the good life we live in America .Our town is supposed to go shelter-n-place tomorrow night at midnight. I'm not sure as a copier technician if we are considered essential or not. It's kind of a grey area and basically up to my boss to decide. My wife as a nurse is definitely essential. I look back with fondness to 2 weeks ago when my biggest problems were my kid changing day cares and starting t-ball.
