TUMBLEWEEDS CHAPTER STUDEBAKER DRIVERS CLUB
LAS VEGAS - HENDERSON - SOUTHERN NEVADA
All Tumbleweeds meetings and activities have been cancelled for the foreseeable future due to the Coronavirus.
How long before we can resume getting together? Nevada has taken aggressive measure to reduce the spread of the virus and “flatten the curve”. If successful, it is hoped these steps will keep the number of cases manageable for our medical system. Unfortunately, flattening the curve also draws out the timetable for how long we will need to be operating under these measures. With moderate intervention the virus is forecast to peak in Nevada in mid June. So things probably won’t get back to normal…whatever the new normal is…until sometime in the summer.
On a positive note, in our neighborhood at least, I see many more people out walking. Walking their dogs. Waving or greeting each other (from a distance). Everything seems to be moving at a more relaxed pace…unless of course you’re on the hunt for toilet paper!
There’s nothing that says you can’t fire up your old Studebaker and take it for a slow drive around your neighborhood. It’s good for your car. It’s good for your spirits. And it might just make the people you drive by smile and forget their troubles for a moment.
Americans helped each other through the Great Depression. Americans made tremendous sacrifices during World War II. We are all in this together, and Americans will overcome this challenge too.
