How do you know Covid-19 is like a flu virus? I listened yesterday to an epidemiologist explaining that Covid-19, being a coronavirus, could be more similar to MERS, a similar coronavirus that transmits from camels on the Arabian peninsula in 110° temps without a problem.

Virus is a packet of genetic material unlike bacteria which is a complete cell.   Hot and dry and UV is a good way to eradicate them.      This  virus is inactivated by humidity rather than dryness.   I do not understand the chemistry behind that.     

Transmission will slow once people are regularly outside and have the windows open at their residence.

I understand what a virus is, the point I was trying to reiterate from this epidemiologist was to not count on the warm weather mitigating this one. I hope it does, and I get your point of folks being outside more slowing the spread of this.

It is not inactivated by the humidity. Humidity just does not allow the virus to go very far. When someone coughs or sneezes and humidity is high, the droplets from the coughing or sneeze combine with droplets in the air then become heavy and sink to the ground instead of getting inhaled by someone else.

Thanks again to everyone that has responded.  I've already backed out on her and terminated the contract over this.  It doesn't look like she's in a hurry to relist.  The response to this virus is making me nervous to continue at this point.  It could really hurt me if the market drops over this.  I'm not sure it will, but I think I'm going to play it safe for a few weeks and see what happens.  It might just be a blessing that she did this to me.  It's a tough decision because I feel this is the right place for us.

As for the virus...  I think it's been here in Michigan longer than they think it has.  I was deathly sick this January with the same symptoms.  My two daughters had something as well, but not as severe as what I went through.  Makes me wonder if it was covid-19.  It lasted about 5 days for me.

I will just throw out there, that viral stuff with cough fever and runny nose has happened every winter for my 30 years as a pediatrician,  every winter.  most viruses have symptoms for 5 to 7 days.  if the inflammation stays you may cough for 6 weeks, like mycoplasma we called walking pneumonia in the old days.  stay well!  good luck with your property search!

It sounds like this is your ideal place.  I wouldn't be too quick too eliminate it from consideration.  She did not act in good faith; but what if she had?  What if she had disclosed before your offer that she had already contracted for some walnut harvesting?  Would that have significantly changed your offer?  I would be very cautious to make sure there aren't any other surprises but I think I might go ahead.

When I bought my small acreage we only looked at three properties on one weekend.  Once we saw this one we knew it was the one.  Any other looking would have just been comparing back to this one.  That was done in 1984 and we have never regretted it.

Good Luck,

Update on my home purchasing adventure:


    I guess good things come to those who wait.  We were able to find a place on 5 acres with a huge barn that will work perfectly for my mill.  The property is secluded, for the most part with a 60x80 horse arena with attached 24x32 original barn and 16x28 hay storage off the same side as the original barn.  I was thinking I could make the hay storage a kiln at some point.  This is right around the corner from Buskirk Lumber in Freeport, Michigan.  The house needs to be redone inside and out but it will be nice when were done with it.  This property doesn't come with the trees the other one had, but it's nice and in our price range. 8)  Here are some pictures.  We close tomorrow morning.  Possession in 30 days.  It was an 8 month search, looked at 23 properties all together.  We were just not finding anything in our price range that met the needs until this popped up.  It's absolutely perfect.




















This is a picture of the property in 1999.

Thought I would share.

Thanks DDW.  Both the front and back porches will have to be tore down and rebuilt.  I think the back porch may have rotted the house where it attaches.  The dormers leaked down into the master bedroom and the living room as well...  I have to open up the drywall above these rooms and make sure we don't have mold.  The roof was replaced a few years ago but I'm going to check and make sure there are no more leaks just in case...  There are lots of projects that will more than likely keep me away from using my mill.  Hoping to possibly mill up some decorative beams/supports for the front porch though.   It will be nice to finally be out of the little apartment we are currently in. Was able to find time earlier this month to put about 10 hours more on my mill.  I have just under 30 hours on it now.  I was able to cut up a bunch of red oak I plan to use for trim eventually.  I have learned a lot from this forum.

DDW,

   Great article, I have book marked it for reference.  All the red oak I have cut up will be used for interior trim mainly around doors and windows.  I cut a lot of wide material with the idea to fabricate new custom window sills.  I will need to do some more research here on the forum to get ideas for the porches.  I am going to use store bought treated lumber as needed and reuse a lot of the old lumber but it would be nice to add a decorative beam in somehow since I do have a mill.   I have a Central Boiler 6048 wood boiler that I will be installing before winter.  That will be a project all to itself.  I removed it from the house we sold and kept the heat exchangers and water heater with the side arm already attached.  The furnace plenum at the new house is the exact same size as the old house so my exchanger will slip right in without too much trouble.  I just have to figure out how I am going to transport the stove from where it is 90 minutes away.  The vendor I rented the trailer from up north wasn't all that friendly and I really don't want to use his rig again.  There are other dealers here I will have to contact to get that done.  The new house is currently heated with propane so I really need to get the boiler installed before winter.  Plus the wood heat is so much more cozy.

The work begins in 30 days when we get possession.  It will be nice to be out of our 800 sq ft apartment for sure!

Thanks for you input and thanks to all that responded.

Will

Here's a picture of the red oak trim I cut a couple weeks ago.  The boiler is sitting next to the stack.  I have some reject boards from a dull blade propped up against the stove.  I milled a total of 15 logs from the property we sold in Greenbush last fall.  More trim than I need actually.  I am not sure it will look all that great to use for floor trim though due to the lengths.  Most boards are going to be around 9 feet long.
