The weather has been wonky. We had less than five inches of snow this winter. Our average is around 30 but we often get more. The forecasts were for a snowy and cold winter. Glad I didn’t put money on that! Not complaining, just sayin’.
It’s been warmer too. Long range forecast doesn’t show any cold snaps. Old man winter may have left the building. Looking forward to Miss Spring coming in and strutting her stuff. Last year she stayed in the tropics until June. She was spotted at a beach bar with a margarita in her hand chatting it up with a sailor. What a tart!
There is finally something that overshadows politics and it’s a tiny virus. As I’ve said before people be crazy. There is cautiousness in the air. The gym is dead and aside from grocery stores, most other places are too. I had a pizza lunch yesterday and people brought their own sanitizing wipes to clean their table. I was impressed. These are the same folks who miss the toilet and sneeze into the air. Maybe it’s a reboot for people.
Locally our colleges are teaching remotely. I wonder if that will affect the keg parties. Hard to do those remotely. Another reboot. Focusing on…well…education. I wonder what the long term effects will be. If an expensive college can offer an effective on-line program, why pay room and board. Oh yes, for the experience! (My mom just rolled over in her grave at the thought of all that money for an experience!)
People watching hasn’t been as good. The crazies are staying home giving me little to report. I know they’ll come out again. Cabin fever and all that. They may be in full hazmat gear. I’ll take pictures.
