The first thing I noticed when I turned onto one of the main roads during my run was the lack of cars. The road should have been two thick streams of cars – people fleeing Sunday services to get to their favorite restaurants before everybody else. If people attended services today, they didn’t do it in the same numbers. If they skipped services, they also skipped going out to lunch. It was like having the whole town to myself.
The roads were thin with cars. There seemed as many on the main road as coming onto the main road from the cross-roads … not an impressive ratio.
It’s one thing to think about social distancing, and quite another to watch it in real time.
