As a longtime resident of Downtown Fort Collins, I go for a lot of walks around the neighborhood, which typically means running into a few acquaintances along the way (and experiencing some all-around good people-watching, especially on the weekends).  But, things are a little bit different now in the age of COVID-19...

After feeling cooped up in quarantine, I stepped out for my socially-distant fresh-air walk around the block/break from Tiger King, and socially distant it was. Old Town Fort Collins felt like a ghost town, and I will probably be taking all walks before sundown from this point on because it felt so creepy.

While there were no zombie sightings, the only sign of human life I saw were a couple of Fort Collins police cars and three diesel trucks rolling coal (I guess they are more than six feet apart).

On a positive note, good job to everyone for staying home. We want to see this place full of life and drunks sooner rather than later.
