It’s a year today since we started our hard lockdown. And hard was a good way to describe it. I remember the day before lockdown like it was yesterday.
I’d been at work and headed home towards the afternoon. As I drove, an unnerving frenzy seemed to have gripped the city. I’d never seen anything like it. The roads were manic. It seemed like people thought Armageddon was nigh the way they were racing around. I saw people drive through red traffic lights in their haste. That frightened me. It felt doomsdayish and the ominous atmosphere tried to creep into my car. I did my windows up tighter.
