Corona Virus Diaries: March 8, 2021

About a week ago, I made up my mind to make a diary post once a week on Sunday afternoons. As you can see, that went by the wayside the first week. Still, I’m going to try just as something I can look back on and see what was happening in life. Currently in ourContinue reading “Corona Virus Diaries: March 8, 2021”

Corona Virus Diaries: February 27, 2021 – Adventures in Hair Loss & Geocaching

Currently there are just 70 active cases of COVID in our county. The statistics have dropped sharply, despite the fact that it’s ski season and we have a lot of people from out of state in the area. I credit the vaccines taking hold among the population over the last month. The total cases topContinue reading “Corona Virus Diaries: February 27, 2021 – Adventures in Hair Loss & Geocaching”

Corona Virus Diaries: February 15, 2021

Well, here we are. It’s more than a year since things went to hell in a handbasket. I was advocating for my son to be in the 1A group. He is immunocompromised due to getting infusions of Remicaide for his Crohns Disease. Being home for as long as he was last year was tough onContinue reading “Corona Virus Diaries: February 15, 2021”

Corona Virus Diaries: January 27, 2021

It’s the coldest part of the winter for us here in the White Mountains. In years past, we’ve seen negative temperatures quite frequently this time of year. That’s not happening so much this year. It seems to be a pretty mild winter. We haven’t had a lot of snow, either, although right now I amContinue reading “Corona Virus Diaries: January 27, 2021”

Corona Virus Diaries: January 16, 2021 and Musings on the Last Two Weeks

It’s been a long time since I’ve written about COVID, but I thought about it every day, of course. Going to Disney World, you’re reminded constantly on property to wear a mask and social distance. By staying pretty much in that “bubble” we seem to have escaped it. We’re now taking a couple of daysContinue reading “Corona Virus Diaries: January 16, 2021 and Musings on the Last Two Weeks”

Where Am I Once Again?

No, I haven’t disappeared off the face of the Earth. I also do not have COVID, nor have I taken part in the insurrection against our government. Three days ago was my 55th birthday. My family has never been big on birthday celebrations. I decided this year I was going to have a big-time birthdayContinue reading “Where Am I Once Again?”

Corona Virus Diaries: December 22, 2020 and Thoughts on Skylar Mack and the Cayman Islands

Heading into Christmas, we’ve reached 735 total COVID cases in the county I live in, yet only 3 deaths. That’s a little lower than the 1-2% rate of death the virus is seeing in general. Right now we’re showing 118 active cases currently. We just had a big outbreak at a drug treatment center inContinue reading “Corona Virus Diaries: December 22, 2020 and Thoughts on Skylar Mack and the Cayman Islands”

Corona Virus Diaries – December 12, 2020

Our corner of the world has exploded with COVID cases since I last checked in. We have surged to 573 total cases since testing began. We are still at 2 deaths in this county. Our county has 153 active cases at the present time. One of the deaths in a nearby county hit home. MyContinue reading “Corona Virus Diaries – December 12, 2020”

Corona Virus Diaries: November 29, 2020

New Hampshire is feeling it. We now have 327 total cases in my county, with 90 active cases. There are only 8 ICU beds in my county, so if a lot of people need hospitalization, it would be an issue. My Dad was in the hospital one time when they were pretty full all aroundContinue reading “Corona Virus Diaries: November 29, 2020”

Corona Virus Diaries: November 25, 2020

Just since my last missive on the 20th, my county jumped from 260 confirmed COVID cases to 317. For the more populous areas, that might sound like a lot, but we were at the end of the summer before we even had 100. We’re definitely seeing a surge here. My granddaughter, my son, and IContinue reading “Corona Virus Diaries: November 25, 2020”
