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: 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: 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”

Corona Virus Diaries – November 11, 2020: Here Comes the Outbreak

Living in northern New Hampshire, we’ve dodged the bullet for the most part with the COVID pandemic. Even as cases in other nearby states were exploding, the county I live in and the county north of us had very low numbers. The last time I seriously looked at the number, on Halloween, we had 156Continue reading “Corona Virus Diaries – November 11, 2020: Here Comes the Outbreak”

Corona Virus Diaries – October 27, 2020

It’s early morning here in New Hampshire. The weather has been pretty crappy for a few days. Don’t get me wrong – we need the rain. It’s been colder than it has been, too, and that gives it a raw feeling. They’re even calling for a possibility of some snow Friday morning. I usually don’tContinue reading “Corona Virus Diaries – October 27, 2020”

Corona Virus Diaries: October 17, 2020

Here we are, more than midway through the month of October in the year we can’t wait till it ends. I’m counting down the days until November 3rd and seeing what shakes out from that, then hopefully to the end of the year. I have tentative travel plans from now through March of 2021 andContinue reading “Corona Virus Diaries: October 17, 2020”

Corona Virus Diaries: October 1, 2020

It’s been feeling like fall around here for a while now. We had a bit of an Indian Summer the end of last week and the beginning of this one, but we’re definitely in fall. The trees are changing colors rapidly. Due to the drought we’ve had up this way, they seem to be goingContinue reading “Corona Virus Diaries: October 1, 2020”

Corona Virus Diaries: August 23, 2020

We are right now sitting at 99 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in our county. I was going to write when it hit 100, but that will probably be tomorrow. Since the end of June, we’ve been seeing about one confirmed new case per day. Not terrible, especially for what I was expecting once the crowdsContinue reading “Corona Virus Diaries: August 23, 2020”

Understanding Travel Insurance and Why You Need It

There often is a debate among travelers whether or not to purchase travel insurance when booking a vacation. After this year, you’d think it was pretty clear-cut that you should. However, it’s not quite that simple. The devil is in the details, as they say. One thing that is never covered is FEAR. Just becauseContinue reading “Understanding Travel Insurance and Why You Need It”
