On a normal workday, these parking spaces outside our rental complex are mostly empty. Now they are nearly always all full.

The local grocery store parking lot is more empty than full.
Shopping has become an entirely different experience during quarantine, with many stores running out of products and unable to keep shelves stocked.
Customers practice social distancing, remaining 6 feet apart, even in small aisles.
This sometimes means that customers must wait for another shopper to exit the aisle before they enter.

Morning traffic on NY State Route 38. The highway has been so quiet since our country began social distancing. Usually, it is quite busy with school buses, semi-trucks, and people driving to work at this time.

A cool place to read the Inferno. College student John Milliken and his two other college-age brothers are home and attending class online. John set up his study place in the basement.
