Dark Four In Cascadia

Daily notes from a plague winter

November 15th

Case counts have reached another high. In Oregon, in the US, in the World. It's the third wave, here just in time for the Northern Hemisphere winter. We discuss making changes. Check our emergency stash. Talk through scenarios. If one of us gets it, the other will get it for sure. What it'll be like to both be sick at the same time. Preparedness, not panic. A close friend had it two months ago. He's over it for the most part but still feeling weak. I tell the story again of the time I had mono. Took me most of a year to fully recover, to feel a hundred percent like me again.

Sunny this morning. Clear skies, after three days rain.

This is going to be a hard winter.
