    My company has us working from home as much as possible, but we are able to come in since engineering requires large printing that can't be done at home. I guess we are a part of that essential business since we are involved with engineering for various construction including the Illinois Tolway. So far, except for working from home, its business as usual. All our survey crews and construction crews are all working full speed ahead. Got our fingers crossed that this workflow continues. We are still getting RFP's by clients for land development including residential so it appears that our clients are thinking long term.
    I'm a Project Engineer in the Electrical field. we are pretty much the same. I live in Denton County (TX). We currently have 30 cases.

    What county are you in? We got our first case in Indiana County yesterday.

    Chad what state are you in? Is it Indiana? In Missouri ( St. Louis) car dealers are open for now I believe. I am a dealer for a cabinet manufacturer in PA and the state closed them and down most industries. I am waiting for orders for customers which is delaying they're projects and me getting paid. Crazy but hopefully we will flatten the curve.
    I'm in Wisconsin. We are the same as other states. We furloughed 1500 employees. It's crazy. So far 2 dealerships shut there doors. I can't say why I think they did it but it is what it is. hopefully come out after this with a job and a strong company. The owner decided to only be there for emergencies for first responders. They are covering our health insurance and a few weeks of pay. Hope they are right. It sucks but it was slowing down fast and soon everyone would be making min wage that doesn't cover health care or unemployment with health care. so what's better.

    It does make you wonder how all of this will affect the boat market. This is uncertain times financially for a lot of people but you have to think that many people will also be considering new and unique family activities to enjoy.

    This will be a crazy moment in history that we will hopefully look back at and see that we came out of it stronger and more resilient. Trying to stay as normal as possible at work with many employees working from home while attempting to maintain manufacturing capabilities has been a challenge but we seem to be persevering through it so far. Kids are home from school indefinitely and will be tearing down the walls in the house soon. Not knowing what will be open and closed this spring and summer, I told my wife yesterday that I'm very thankful to have a boat that we can escape to once the weather and water warm up a little. I will more than likely put the boat in the water a little earlier this spring and take the kids out for some spring fishing which is something we normally don't do with our boat. My boys should be happy about that!!
