Good morning! I almost just got up at 4 am because I had been awake so long. Scott got up and was talking to himself in the bathroom at 2 am then came back to bed and started snoring and I was wide awake. My hand has been bothering me every since we painted so of course that was aching. I finally got up and took some Advil and then I was able to fall back asleep for a bit.
Yesterday evening my old Buster cat had a seizure. I thought maybe he was dying but then he was fine and purring again. Sheesh silly old cat. I have never had an animal have a seizure before but I remember my grandma had a dog that had them. Also in high school a kid had one at the bus stop once. That was terrifying.
We just got an email from the state office at work. I'll share.
Dear California NRCS employees, contractors, and partners:
- All employees should telework through 1/20 and preferably through Friday 1/22. If you have an issue with teleworking contact your SET member and they will provide you instruction on your situation.
- Starting now through 1/22 do not wear government logo attire or your LincPass lanyard in public.
- Keep your LincPass with you when away from the computer.
- When securing the building, take all computers home, lock up all PII, secure sensitive and easily pilferable equipment and close the blinds.
- If you are on your way into the office and encounter a protest or civil unrest near the building, do not try to go through the crowd to get to the office. Instead, safely make your way back home to telework for the day.
- Building doors remain locked at all times
- If working in the building next week (please see the first bullet point) pack a lunch; do not leave the building during work hours
- If a crowd gathers, leave via the back door if possible, otherwise shelter-in-place until it is safe to leave the building
- Call 9-1-1 if anyone starts banging on the locked doors
- Call the local law enforcement non-emergency number if a crowd starts gathering
