    Default Katie's, 02/01/20

    A cool, clear morning. While the parking lots were not packed, we had plenty of cars and people, as well as a good variety of both.

    Clear skies and dry streets mean a good turnout at Katie's - even in cold weather! Here's a few examples of the variety there today.
    (Note that the Charger is NOT stock. It's been completely rebodied as a wide-body, the tail is extended, and the door handles have been relocated, and made flush with the body.)

    Because it was so cold this morning (18F), attendance at Katie's was later, and smaller. As often happens in cold weather, the cars were mostly German. (There were three Porsche 911 GT3s there today.)

    Looks like a go cart parked in between.

    What was new at Katie's today? There's always something... A 'perfect' VW bus, fresh from a complete restoration, a Jaguar shooting brake, and classic American muscle.

    Cold weather does not keep the cars away. That last car is a Porsche Taycan Turbo S.

    A pretty good turnout for a cold Saturday morning. There's always a good variety of vehicles at Katie's.

    A special day at Katie's. In recognition of public concerns about COVID-19 contagion, Mike, the owner of Katie's, removed some tables to create more space inside. He also brought in a couple of extra people to serve food & coffee outside, which was greatly appreciated! Were there any good cars there, for those who came out? You be the judge!

    NoVA Lotus member 'FoxedUpOne' came all the way up from Barboursville, with his new Evora GT. My friend, Pete, just bought a Sebring Sprite. Somebody brought a Suzuki Cappucino, a Japanese Kei car.

    Have you ever seen a McLaren Senna?

    Medical advice from a professional: (not me)


    A friend, who is both a Lotus owner and an ER doctor, helped me make sense of the seriousness of limiting personal contact: If we continue to travel and socialize at our normal rate, the number of COVID-19 cases will skyrocket. If that happens, the healthcare system will not be able to keep up. If, under the load of massive increases in patient loads, nurses and doctors get sick, this can very easily spin out of control. While contracting COVID-19 may not kill you, it might spread to your friends and relatives, through you. If they are 60 or older, or have existing health problems, it could kill them!


    If people can just avoid close contact outside the home, it helps a lot. Local weather is such that it's pretty nice to be outside, which also works, keeping a sensible distance from others -- (social distancing). If we can extend the spread of the virus out to, say, a few months, the load on the healthcare system will be less, the supply of the masks and testing items can catch up, and everyone will benefit. No need for panic, but lots of reasons to help lessen the load on the system.


    Hope this helps - the explanation was a help to me, in ways that what I see on news and social media has not been.
