Just looking at the numbers, I think things are going to be worse than I expected this fall with Covid. Again, I’m no epidemiologist, statistician, or anyone particularly bright, but I thought we would hit our summer peaks somewhere around Thanksgiving, but it looks like we are BLOWING right the fuck through that. I had also sort of expected that the fall numbers would be fueled by college students, and it doesn’t seem that is the case, either.
So I think things are going to be far worse that I even imagined they would be in idiot nation, and I would recommend that each of you, if you can, buy dried beans and staples and be prepared for a brutal few months. If you take meds, talk with your doctor about getting a three-six month prescription. I think it is going to be very, very bad, and I don’t think anyone is prepared.
And there look to be a lot of superspreader ready events going on now and soon to come- voting, trick or treating, and then the holidays. It’s going to be ugly and we’re not a serious people.
Speaking of not serious people- this is the annual homecoming in my small town. The college cancelled it and moved it all online, yet a couple dozen alums from my peer group decided to come back and get together. They’re staying at local hotels and Oglebay resort, and a house in town, and just partying and being irresponsible as fuck. I’ve called them all out, and have deadbolted the doors on my house for the first time since living here. None of the people who stay with me are back because I told them all in June it was out of the question until there was a vaccine.
They toilet papered my car and trees last night for being a party pooper.
Again, grown ass adults with full time jobs who should know better.
