    I've noticed something since this quarantine crap started

    I live under a major flight route and when i look up at the sky all I see is sky and stars...no contrails no blinking lights...looks amazing.

    So now I know what the sky looked like a 150 years ago

    Ditto, around here you are apt to see and hear a heard of military helicopters flying training missions. I haven't heard one flying in a couple of weeks.

    The news here last night did a piece on the Sacramento airport, it was a ghost town. Most of the major carriers aircraft are just parked all over the place.

    BIL flew home last night. He said there were 4 people on the plane. The stewardess told him there were not 20 people on that plane all day!

    My job is tracking maintenance and flight hours on private jets. It's basically come to a screeching halt as far as private jet's flying. People can't go anywhere and all the operators i'm talking to say the owners are "parking" the aircraft until this thing passes.

    LOL I could probably drive the entire length of the Atlantic City Expressway at 100 mph backwards, naked, and smoking a giant doobie and not get looked at twice by law enforcement or anyone else for that matter

    I've read you'll be driving 10 MPH if you're burning a doob

    Went for groceries, still looks like normal days traffic. Can tell smaller shops don't have vehicles filling parking areas around most of them anymore. But still lots of traffic. Last Friday was the only day in weeks while I was out there seemed to be less traffic to me.

    I wouldn't look at you twice either....wouldn't even want to see that once!
