Here in Oregon, we are one of the two last states to have no self-serve gas, the other is New Jersey. The exception is filling up a motorcycle tank, there must have been at least one biker on that committee who didn’t want his tank paint mucked up by some pump jockey. Back when I lived in Syracuse, one time I pulled into the gas station to fill up and it was so cold the pumps had frozen. There‘s a place where no self-serve would have been welcome.Better yet, get some doggie waste bags and keep in your door pocket. They are cheap and fit your hand well. I haven't touched a pump handle in years, nor much else for that matter. Hand wipes and sanitizer are a must, always. The benefit is rarely getting sick.
We have been fortunate in having a low rate of Covid-19 cases in my county. The 20,000 or so U of O students were already here when the community transmission spread began, otherwise we’d be looking at much higher numbers. We did have a death at the hospital 5 miles from my house, a sobering reminder.
Fortunately, the stat cannabis industry is such that there was so much over-production of crop during a recent harvest that there is enough to meet average annual consumption for 6 years. It can’t be taken across state lines (legally), so many of us are doing our best to reduce that surplus, but it’s going to take a while. Forget test kits, send us snack foods!
