Just put heated blankets in the bed and thicker quilts on top First real flying snow yesterday and day before - bright blue skies and sunshine today but still chilly. Ho hum, time to hunker down for a predicted longer cold spells winter.

Cold and grumpy I am. But just wait until next year! Yippee. Party time.

Seriously though, there is no point in folks crossing the border and getting sick in another country. Much as I like travelling in the USA, this year I'll pass. I was planning on buying a DSDP but right now there is no point. It would sit in my driveway and collect snow.

To the Americans who can travel to warmer climes, I wish you well. Unfortunately I cannot join you

Stay safe

There is an option. Call RV parks in FL to see if they have a rental trailer available for your time period. Fly down and back, it is not prohibited.

Some back channel talk has popped up on some of the Facebook channels. Right now about 5000 American per week are dieing from the virus. The jabber is that that number needs to drop down to about 2000 per week before things start to relax. Mortality per million inhabitants is about 2.5 times as high as Canada and headed the wrong direction. That is spooking lots of snowbirds as well. Best to sit it out for awhile.

Not even close to what is happening. The US is far ahead of the curve..far ahead.

This site is updated and has excellent information. Scroll down midway for deaths by diseases and you'll see the common flu stats.
