    cool torch, Dubz!

    Went into the office today for the first time since March 16. Went in to MOVE my office to a new one (nominally an upgrade). Hope it's not 3mo before I go back again. Tho now that I'm moved and we're figuring out re-population plans and people are ordered, agreed to, and provisioned with masks and sanitizer, it's more likely I'll go back in occasionally just to reclaim some focus and switch contexts.

    my building was designed to hold 195-200 people under the old rules.
    under the current social distancing guidelines, I think I can fit 80 in it with some judicious people shuffling.

    Eldest son turns 18 tomorrow. We hooked him up with a friends beach house to stay at during the week and weekend. Stopped in today to drop off ice and hang out a bit.

    There was a shooting at my work today. Was told to leave, and about all I know.

    They found the suspect. Listening to scanner. Looks like he killed himself. Slumped over the wheel, with hole in window. Reports are all over the place. 1-5 dead.

    I haven't seen one of those in years ... you find some gems in your searches! I need to see if I can get to my sisters and take some pictures of the old torch (not sure of brand and it's not in that great of shape) ... and the old carbide lamp she has from our grandpa's stuff sometime.

    They gave a press conference. 3 were shot, 2 dead. A 20 year old male, and a 60 year old male, and a 50 year old woman is in critical condition. The shooter was an active employee, and knew all three victims. The found him dead about an hour away, of an apparent self inflicted gunshot would to the head.

    I had just finished my lunch. I eat in my car normally. It was super hot out today, so I had my car running with the air on. Normally I have my windows down. If that would have been the case, I probably would have heard the gunshots. My coworker came out to let me know that we were to leave, but we weren't sure why. He told me there were a bunch of cop cars there. I drove by, and saw maybe 6 or 7 cop cars there. I went to a mini mall a few blocks away, where I could see better what was going on. Several cop cars, fire trucks, and ambulances kept piling in. I still had no idea what was going on. I texted another coworker, and he told me there had been a shooting. I drove home, and started watching it unfold online. Yep, crazy people...
