    If I may return to that railroad siding called "real estate" that we had a few posts back, my son and his wife have their house for sale, and have had three showings in the past week where they loaded their dogs and kids and came to our place for a while. House sales, according to their agent, are not slowing down for this virus. Interesting.

    I heard this morning that half of the new cases in Plano Texas are law enforcement. Take care out there, guys and gals.

    From March 15th forward to Mid July is the busiest time of the year in Real Estate. Usually most transfers come after school lets outs and folks transferring know in advance. New Graduates already have jobs lined up. Also, investors aren't looking at stocks right now.

    In Lubbock, with a metro population of 330,000 only had 815 active listings last week when I checked, and that is all single family properties in the entire county, a low number. I checked how many properties were currently under contract (not included in the active listings) and there were 642 properties in escrow.

    Also, checking with a few friends who are still actively working, business has been brisk. I am sure a lot of mortgage loans are now sub 3%, it is a great time to buy a home.

    Lubbock will weather this storm we are in, it is a very diversified economy. Lubbock did pretty well during the recessions of the 70's, fair in the Savings and Loan failures and oil busts of the 80's, and even fair during the mortgage meltdowns of 2008-2009.

    Lubbock is not on shelter in place at this point, even though bars, restaurants and most retail is now closed.

    Realtors I talked to are nervous about the virus, particularly the older ones. If this thing gets more serious, it will have an effect for sure.

    I thought back to 9-11 of 2001. I had a doctor who had accepted a Job with the Med School and we talked the afternoon of 9/11, discussed the terrible event, and he simply said, I've still got to have a place to live. That pretty well sums it up, people still have to live somewhere. It's a good time and a nervous time to be in real estate sales or rentals.

    I think a whole lot of people are just trying to continue on business as usual. I haven't been out of the house in over a week, was starting to get low on some things so figured being at the store at 7AM would be a wise move and the best time to go. I pulled up 6:45 and there was a crowd I'd say 25-30 people just waiting in a big group right outside the door. No social distancing, no line, just one big clump of people. I waited in my car until the door got unlocked and the crowd moved in. I'm seeing that kind of thing everywhere. One guy was going through a stack of coupons while he shopped and using saliva to better separate them. I'm getting pictures from back east of playgrounds full of kids playing basketball and other hangout recreational type activities. It's nuts, truly nuts. We are without a doubt our own worst enemy in this fight, because millions of us just don't seem to grasp the severity, or just don't seem to care for whatever reason.

    Getting back on subject, a third police officer of just NY alone has just died, and hundreds have tested positive. Yeah, I would be real scared myself if I was in that job right now. https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/28/us/ny...ths/index.html

    This entire thing is a complete farce. The police spokesmen are complete pansies on top of that. I'm part of those front lines in the EMS side. Fire and PD across the country we're treating this pandemic like a joke. Fire was burning through PPE like they had container ships' worth of inventory they had to use up. The Houston embarrassment... erm I mean chief is talking about nationalizing? What in the Hell is he talking about? We've had policies and procedures handed down by the CDC, Dept of Homeland Security/FEMA and national Office of emergency management for everything to do about Covid-19 for the past 3+ weeks. I have my temp taken every 12 hours and it's logged. If I have a temp at any point that exceeds 99.6 degrees, I am denied entry to any EMS facility and I go immediately into QT. I have to carry at least 2 N95 masks with me and a box of nitrile gloves wherever I go. Even pump gas, I have to glove up.
    On Wednesday I had an initial reading for 100.0 degrees (forehead reading). QT protocols were activated and this is while I've got sweat running down my face with a decent sunburn going on. I was replacing/repairing security cameras in direct sunlight and jogged back to the temp reading center. A mouth thermo showed it at 98.2 and they cancelled the QT procedure. My temp which I just took was 97.9 (I run low on my temps). This is how the procedure is designed to work. Due to my job, I'm considered mission critical so they go out of their way to make sure they keep me insulated from possible contact. If these Police officers took Covid-19 as seriously as they should, contraction rates would be 1% of what we're seeing now in emergency services.

    The government here in GB have asked that ALL house sales be put on hold where possible.

    Laws are rarely "enforced," violations are merely reported. Often now that's about the end of it.
