I would think it is common sense if land isn’t yours (and Is not obviously public) you stay off of it.

There was a wink for a reason. I'm with ya, sister. The lack of common sense these days, and not just during this shutdown, I'm talking about stuff you should have learned by the time you were 5, and given the benefit of the doubt, by the time you were an adult......hooboy.

I took the liberty of renaming it “unique sense” years ago and it has stuck with those around me.

We were going to use our gas grill for the first time since last fall. Opened the lid, it had a huge mouse nest inside, and a mouse climbed out with six babies attached to nipples. Yuck!
This also happened 2 years ago. That winter we had tarped it so this year we decided to not tarp it thinking they wouldn't go in it uncovered and outside.

That’s why you use your gas grill all winter!. If you don’t grill in the winter, get charcoal so you have an excuse to have a couple beers while waiting for the briquettes to be ready!

We had a Robin build a nest again on top of our electrical meter/service box which is under our screen porch. The mama laid 4 eggs and has been very protective of it for a while. She was upset with me yesterday late morning when I went out to uncover plants. By evening she was gone and so were the eggs. Some egg stealing critter got to them. Was looking forward to watching the hatchlings grow up. :(

Gas or propane? I've never had that problem with my propane grill, but I also use it at least every other week during the winter.

My dad's natural gas grill has this problem frequently with rodents. I am guessing they like the warmth of the pilot? But he also rarely, if ever, uses his grill in the winter.

Propane. But we rarely use in winter because there's usually a 4 foot snowbank between our back door and the grill.

We have a propane grill that we keep outside covered throughout the winter. Have never found a nest of any kind but have found rodent droppings. We don't use the grill in the winter as it snowbound. Worst thing about the winter on our grill is that the grill cover takes a beating by both critters and the elements. This coming winter I am going to buy a cheap tarp and use that to cover the grill and keep the actual grill cover inside.

Critters got under my tarp two winters ago and for whatever reason chewed the rubber covering and surrounding the push button that ignites the grill. That button no longer works but I am able to light it manually using a long-handled lighter. Could also use a new grill cover as the original is showing lots of wear after 5 or so seasons.

I am getting Amazon deliveries almost daily as I find little nuisance things like this to fix. I can have something ordered in less than a minute. Anything that annoys me gets a fix.

The cable that holds open the kills switch on my old gas mower was frayed. 3 days later...brand new. My printer wasn’t working well over WiFi using VPN....hard wired in a day.

I am definitely getting my money’s worth out of our Prime membership.

The amount of crap I have ordered in the last 10 weeks has been nuts. I am the same way, see something I need, I order it. Video conference calls for work don’t help either. Yesterday I bought a backup camera for my truck while sitting on one.

I came into work today, only to discover that I wasn't supposed to be here today. Back in February, I had put in vacation requests for 4 Fridays this summer for my son's baseball tournaments. The first tournament was supposed to be this weekend.

I feel bad for my kids and all of the things they will be missing out on this year. They're only at this age once.

I walk by the local baseball fields on my walk everyday. The city is keeping the fields up and they look great, but they are empty. As a father who had three boys who played ball I can imagine how bad those kids want to play.

We've had a lot of turnover in our neighborhood, with young families with kids moving in. So good to see them all outside playing all kinds of different things in our cul-de-sac every day, having fun in the great outdoors. Reminds me of when I was a kid, except to say back then we were at a baseball field several blocks away and our parents didn't have to worry about us!

I run by fields almost every day. Most days there is a group of 2-3 kids taking batting practice. It’s sad knowing they won’t get to play in any real games this year, but they’ll still remember the times with their friends at the field.

MYAS, MBL and a girls softball governing org (can't remember the name) are teaming up and have a proposal with the Gov. to allow for baseball and softball this summer, so there is still some hope. Some associations have already cancelled In-house baseball (Prior Lake and Woodbury) and Eden Prairie cancelled their Travel baseball as well.

My son plays on a team in the MYAS organization. There is still hope of playing this summer, but with each passing day with no news, I'm growing more pessimistic. In a typical year, the season would be almost half over by the end of May. I just don't know how they would be able to pull it off at this point.

Hopefully I'm wrong. I've been going to the park to practice with him almost every day (just him and I), but for the last week or so I can tell he's not really into it. I think he can see the writing on the wall.

The proposal is to allow play to begin June 1st. That would at least give something, but there are a ton of logistics to work out. I can't imagine being able to do anything in a safe sort of way with younger age groups.

MYAS, MBL and a girls softball governing org (can't remember the name) are teaming up and have a proposal with the Gov. to allow for baseball and softball this summer, so there is still some hope. Some associations have already cancelled In-house baseball (Prior Lake and Woodbury) and Eden Prairie cancelled their Travel baseball as well.
The proposal is to allow play to begin June 1st. That would at least give something, but there are a ton of logistics to work out. I can't imagine being able to do anything in a safe sort of way with younger age groups.
Yup to risky with the Murder Bees out West.

My son plays on a team in the MYAS organization. There is still hope of playing this summer, but with each passing day with no news, I'm growing more pessimistic. In a typical year, the season would be almost half over by the end of May. I just don't know how they would be able to pull it off at this point.

Hopefully I'm wrong. I've been going to the park to practice with him almost every day (just him and I), but for the last week or so I can tell he's not really into it. I think he can see the writing on the wall.

Like someone said on Twitter, if restaurants can only have a maximum of fifty people outside starting June 1, it will be quite a leap to allow 100k - 200k people outside per day starting just under 3 months later.

Both of my kids are in elementary school and they don’t use the terms english, math, science. Instead they use Wonders, Bridges, Number Corner, and Explorations (which is more social studies than science).

When I ask my kids whAt they have left to work on and they tell me “WonderS” I just shake my head.

It’s already happened, but ice is a premium. Only 2 rinks are currently open and they are booked up. I am coaching in the 2008 version of the Lamoureux Cup normally held in Detroit Lakes. They moved the 07/09 version to Fargo the weekend after next and pushed the 08/10 one back into late July and have ice reserved in Fargo if it doesn’t fly in MN.

I am just pissed I agreed to it as I am against hockey in the summer, but I did it when I was certain there wouldn’t be a baseball season in ND and we had already missed our spring stuff.

I'll greatly miss the Fair, but it has to be cancelled. Don't care that it's outdoors, you can't really enforce a limit on attendance, too many holes in security to keep people from sneaking in, all of the touching of things, etc.

That is not entirely accurate. The CDC says that the main rout of spread through person to person contact and that is doesn’t spread “easily” via contact of surfaces.

They still say “The main way to prevent infection is to practice social distancing and staying at least 6 feet away from others, washing your hands with soap and water, and cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched areas.”

That is a shame. For many, including me, it was a long standing tradition. We have lost pretty much every vacation this year. Detroit for FF, and we just cancelled Nashville. Going to be a long summer.

Was discussing this with some friends earlier today but I don’t understand why anyone should really need explanation on why canceling the fair is the right thing to do.

The opening of more places has given too many people a false sense that their risk of catching/spreading the virus is any less than it has been for the last two months.

I hate it, but I also understand why it had to be done, and why it should have been done.

What people want, and what should happen, are two completely different things, much of the time.

This quote was written on the chalkboard in a lockeroom in the old Ralph Engelstad arena my Squirt team used the day after the Gophers used it and came into the game ranked #1 in the nation and lost 6-1 to a second rate Whioux team.

Overhead on SiouxSports.com - Why does every thread always turn into a "Gopher" thread? Is there a secret infatuation with them?

I think it'd be a good idea for the mods to squash this convo now
It’s been 6 days since the last comment and you want it squashed? Seriously...
The comments from today above theirs were deleted...
Oh crap, got it. Didn’t see those and I totally support that. Thanks for the heads up!
No worries....no way you could have known. :)

People/places that say, "Join us at 8:30pm CST!" during, well, most of the year. Such as right now. I know they mean 8:30pm, but I just can't help myself from responding with, "So, 9:30pm then?"

We have a curfew in Dakota county starting at 8pm tonight. And I was all set to avoid covid and go to Cub late this evening.

2020 gets more surreal by the minute.

When you tell somebody somethin', it depends on what part of the country you're standin' in... as to just how dumb you are.

If the Southdale Target is closed, there's no reason to go out anyway.

I just drove by the Target near my house. It's all boarded up like a hurricane is coming. Surreal.

With so many bad things happening all at once, 2020 feels very 1968-ish.
