    Hey Kathie, got the lead. Boxing was great. BHN checked 12 on this batch. Don't get no better. I have to tell you a short story. The postmaster at my post office is tiny but very tough. She carried and delivered twin boys about two years ago. She calls me when the box shows up and I go pick it up. Never told her what was in them. When this last one came in she called and when I went in the back to get the box she said,You would think that is a box of lead!. My reply,that is exactly what it is. I wish you could have seen the look on her face. She broke out laughing and took it all in stride. Thanks again!

    *COVID-19 update and sales of Lead during the Health Crisis*

    Hi to all....

    Things here in my community (Stratford, CT, a hot spot for COVID-19) are not good. Not good for my state. All municipal offices closed, shopping malls closed, churches, bowling alleys, bars and restaurants take out only or delivery - need to close at 8, many non essential businesses are closed. My state, NY and NJ have formed a regional alliance - so what happens in NY and NJ will probably soon happen here. In NY and NJ: Governors have said all but essential workers are to stay home. They want people to stay indoors. NY announced that they are the epi-center of this crisis. Other states are following suit. Hording abounds and it is so sad that you can't go to the store and buy what you need like in pre Covid-19. This is like a mad dream.

    Due to the above and some other issues, I am temporarily suspending sales of lead, except for those who have contacted me previously with PM's which I have responded to. My supply is near the end (and I had been for the past 2 previous weeks, shipping 1 to 4 50LB packages of lead daily). In normal times, my supply would have lasted for about 3 months. I picked up lead Feb 1st, and next pick up would have been after May 1st. Not sure when or if we will be able to do a cleanup because of rules of how many people can gather.

    A church that I am webmaster for their website requires my attention in regard to publishing recorded services from this point forward (and probably at least through May per Diocese). I have been working very closely with the priest these past few days, taking away my attention to packing up what remaining lead that I have into SMALL FLAT RATE BOXES.

    ** FOR THOSE WHO ARE FOLLOWING UP WITH ME on pending sales, I will send short reply to you to read this post. I hope I can resume my packing task next week. I am not sure what the directive will be for next week, but all is not looking good. **

    Edited on 3/23: State of CT on a lock down (as well as NY and NJ) and residents strongly advised to stay home unless for essential travel (to work, doctors, grocery store, etc). Many "non-essential" businesses are closed. This lock down was effective as of tonight, Monday, at 8 pm. So at this time, it is a shelter-in-place, and I will now suspend all sales until further notice. End of edit.

    Edited 4/27: All sales are still suspended until further notice. At this time, my state will be locked until until at least mid-May - without any expectation that non-essential businesses will be opened any time too soon. I am very low with my supply, and when I do resume sales, it will be be quantities of around 22 pounds to fit safely in a small flat rate box. If you can find lead ingots elsewhere, please do so! Thank you. End of edit.

    Be safe my friends.

    ~ Kathie

    Tried to reply to psychicrhino's PM. Got the usual message: "psychicrhino has exceeded their stored private messages quota and cannot accept further messages until they clear some space."

    My daughter, who lives in Coventry, CT, just sent me a text message. The Governor from FL (where I am) just proclaimed that anyone coming from CT, NY, and NJ have to quarantine, upon arrival, for two weeks. So, she cannot come to visit. Worried about what would happen (I'm 68 and counting) if I got the virus. Both of my children are in New England.

    When you do get back up and running, can you spray down all ingots of lead (getting back on subject) so that we can feel safe handling them?


    It's a detail that few are thinking about as we ship stuff from state to state. Would hate to be a mail person right now.....

    Please kindly read about how long COVID-19 can live on surfaces. Although I live in a hot spot, I am not sick. Thank you.

    Maybe you better consider the mail that you receive everyday, and put that into a quarantine for a few days (a friend of mine does this). How do you know if any piece of mail that you receive has been or has not been handled by someone who has COVID-19 along the journey to you??? I have done my research by reading information from trusted sites, notably the CDC. BECAUSE I CAN NOT GUARANTEE A GERM-FREE PACKAGE ARRIVING TO YOUR HAND, I will solve the concern that you have. Buy elsewhere... but please note, from whomever you buy lead from, they too can not make a guarantee as to who handles the package.

    Glad I stocked up before this lockdown. Take care of yourself! Put me on the list for another box or two when this mess is over!

    Gives you a lot of time to smelt, right? Or are you not aloud to do that?

    If anybody is concerned about bugs on the ingots put on a pair of gloves. I always wear them when handling lead anyway. Kathie, are you making a waiting list? If so put me on it. If not I will be watching.

    Oh how I wish I had some lead to smelt !!!!! My club's range cleanout had been planned for May, but leagues/activities have been temporarily suspended due to governmental order of not having social activities of more than 5 people. We are living in interesting times! Please contact me via a PM sometime in May for an update as I am not maintaining a list of "future" buys. Thanks! ~ K
