CoronaDiary: 3-28-2020

I have not been sick but this is Day 17 for me. I was early on the self-isolate bandwagon. I can work remote so it has been a blessing to have that framework of stability around my days. Other than the great TP shortage of 2020, we have not had any issues with food. We […]

“Preparing” for Hurricane Dorian

Sorry I’ve been distracted with Hurricane Dorian headed toward the eastern seaboard. You would not know from watching the sunrise yesterday what was swirling mere hundreds of miles away. I’ve been told the surf and wind started to pick up a bit yesterday and have intensified this morning. All coastal areas are under mandatory evacuation […]
