CoViD-19: State, County Set New Daily Death Records | After Stay, Strip Club Injunction Overturned | "COVID Can't Kill The Casbah" |


Lioness at San Diego Zoo Safari Park (Taken 6.28.2020)

I am so looking forward to a snuggly cold and rainy weekend in San Diego. We need water from the sky so badly, I just wish that we had better ways to capture the runoff instead of the inevitability of having flooded streets and backed up storm drains. I hope my neighbors below don't learn that their apartment still floods. It would be nice to head up to the mountains but I don't think our van, even with chains, is up for it after mostly sitting unused for the past year. 

COVID-19 has been busy the past couple days but it's flabbergasting that people are making so many demands when the administration has only been in office for like 48 hours. It is no question that vaccination distribution has been a total nightmare, but people trying to jump the line is just as much a problem as order and supply shortages. We know that the last administration chose not to order additional dosages when they had the chance, and it should certainly be investigated if they were intentionally sabotaging the next administration, and we also know that the two vaccines with EUA in the USA are limited in their ability to supply doses, especially when they have other contracts with other countries to honor, too. 

Anyway, I'm looking forward to a quiet weekend and hope you're all staying safe out there. Our case numbers seem to be moving in the right direction, but today both the county and the state had the highest reported deaths of the pandemic, which shouldn't come as a surprise exactly 3 weeks out from New Year's Eve and 4 weeks out from Christmas. Keep wearing your masks (consider doubling up), stay out of indoor spaces like stores and other people's homes, and stay home when you can. Everyone keeps talking about the light at the end of the tunnel, but right now, we're still not even close.
