Not personally. But a lot of my friends IRL are directly impacted, and work is getting a little jittery.

Just one example: My son's saxophone teacher is in a military marching band. He had some sort of temporary mission shift and scheduled a needed foot surgery during that window because it would allow him to recuperate before the marching had to start up again. And looks like his surgery is being cancelled because of the shutdown. So it's going to completely screw up his planning for the year and may force him to drop out of the marching band because he's got a messed up foot. There's a lot that's unknown, and it may all work out, but I've heard half a dozen similar stories from people I know. A lot of people with ties to the Federal government here. At least I'm getting a seat on the subway.

(Separate story, but I never mentioned that my neighbor across the street works on the 4th floor of the Navy Yard building where the shootings happened. He's fine, but it's been hard for him.)
