Asymptomatic......still......

 8:14 am - Wednesday - December 30th - Seal Rock, OR - 48° F, 76% humidity (it's raining, how can that be?), wind 23 miles per hour....sometimes higher.  Heavy cloud cover with rain most of the night, continuing through the day with a forecast high of 51° F.  I awoke to a text message from Terry calling me off work today. On this date in 2012 we were experiencing one of our first Cedar Key sunsets.......↴



Originally we thought we might not be able to work Tuesday due to rain, but the rain held off until the evening.  I worked with Terry and Blake trimming more hedges, and transporting the clippings therefrom to the burn pile.  In all we hauled three full trailer loads of clippings to the burn pile.

After work TLE began the task of moving all of our refrigerated food into our new Dometic America II fridge, which is working wonderfully by the way.  As a result of that I am now able to utilize the 'dorm' fridge in the trailer for my beer stash.  TLE will continue to use the pullout Norcold refer for overflow from the Dometic having turned it back into a refrigerator from a freezer.  All the frozen food fits in the new Dometic freezer with room to spare.

We've had a slight uptick in Wuhan flu cases here in Lincoln County (868 total cases over 10 months now), and one more death for a total over 10 months of 17 deaths.  TLE and I continue to be asymptomatic.  A new study out of the Wuhan Province in China of 10,000,000 people who tested positive for the flu found that there was NO asymptomatic transmission whatsoever.  Of course, as you know, the possibility of asymptomatic transmission has been the underlying justification for locking everyone down over and over again.  The CDC claimed not too long ago that "asymptomatic transmission" of the virus accounted for 50% of all cases....a falsehood, of course.

Due to the current dictates from her highness, the Oregon Governor, it is almost impossible to dine out, and it has been more than a month since we have done so.  Of course, the small silver lining to that fact is we aren't spending much money on entertainment either. As a result buying a new refrigerator was not that painful at all.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Same here, Creig and I haven't dined in at a restaurant since March, although they are open in some places at reduced capacity. I just don't like being in indoor small public places. We don't spend as much money and have lost a few pounds! We get carry out occasionally. The asymptomatic transmission is a real thing btw...it is one of the unusual things about Covid-19. My nephew's roommate got it from an asymptomatic friend . I hope folks don't party too much for New Years ... As for being sick we all know you can feel fine one day and come down sick the next, and probably you were contagious that day before without knowing it...so why would anyone argue it?
