MagAO-X 2020A Stay At Home Day 15: House of Heat

Hi everyone! It’s been awhile since I’ve written a blog post but it makes me happy that the team thought to include me in their blogger recruits. I am going to do a take on Dr. Kelsey Miller’s “Views from the Apocalypse” but rather than a cute Dutch city, I’ll be reporting from the city you all love to hate…..Phoenix, Arizona!

Fry’s has come in clutch for our social distancing needs with their curbside food pickup. 

Here is a “cute” photo of us wiping down our groceries so they are safe to consume

Unfortunately, curbside pickup only goes so far and many common household items such a toilet paper, hand sanitizer, a paper towels are not available. For these we must brave the dangers of the outside world.

Maggie and Miguel to the rescue!

Though these are difficult and uncertain times, they also offer a unique opportunity to catch up with your old friends on Zoom, finish up projects that have been laying around, and laugh at weird things on the internet like this:


I hope you all are able to get outside and enjoy some of the natural beauty around you…six feet away from all of your friends. 🙂

First Water Trail – Superstition Wilderness

I’m happy to be sharing a song that has been getting me through the day: “Walk of Life” by Dire Straits.
