here in the Land of Oz we are in summer - a very rainy summer! Bureau Outlook shows more wet weather likely this summer ... Bureau of Meteorology's Summer Outlook shows eastern Australia is likely to be wetter than average, with an increased risk of tropical cyclones, heavy rainfall and widespread flooding ...

We have very high rates of double vaccination, tho not in all areas, but anti-vaxxers are here too as are other assorted nutters like those who want "Freedom". Recently 2 of these Freedom seekers held up posters protesting about the loss of their 14th amendment rights.

Dunno why they thought "No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws" applied here, we are the land of Oz, not the US of A.

Dunno if they can even think, can't remember who said this recently, but it certainly applies in this case - We don't have enough villages for the idiots we produce.

Yes I do - they can't think.

Every once in a while I go to the Fox channel to see what they are saying. My stomach can't take much so I don't linger. But today this one new (? haven't seen her before) said something that made sense.

She said that as viruses mutate, in order to survive they tend to become less lethal. And therefore, it makes sense that Omicron will be less potent, even if more easily transmitted.

I am not a scientist- is this the case?

There is early optimism that Omicron does not have worse outcomes than Delta. Its just more catchy. More break through infections perhaps but vaccines are minimizing its effects.

We've had a particularly mild fall here in North Texas; the two freezes were just barely there (reaching 32o but no lower - putting a tarp over the garden overnight was enough to keep several crops growing and producing). In my garden I still have three types of peppers (green bell, jalapeño, and poblano), one yellow bent-neck squash, and Swiss chard. The chard will tend to survive mild freezes. The garlic is sprouting now and will be ready to harvest next May. I have a few others recently moved into the greenhouse (some small flowering shrubs call bat-faced cuphea, and a basil plant).

Summing up the year for the holiday letter will include a description of the four days of super-sub freezing days last February. Not something to repeat if at all possible.

for those who won´t come where lot of people are or foreign people who don´t know yet how to reach out for help.
I think Ebbie said the right words, the world is not home free, not for a few years more, this fourth wave here in Iceland is going down, but the fifth the omicron wave is just starting up, I hope and pray that people get less sick of this omicron case.

Here in Juneau, Alaska we have lots of snow, with more expected, the kind of snow I like: dense, creaky and sparkly. So that part is good.

As for the virus, Juneau has been in much better shape than Anchorage (which is in south central Alaska, while Juneau is much farther south). Juneau has an over 80% rate for people who have had at least one shot. We have not had covid death in quite a while.

On the other hand, I know several antivaxxers here in town, so we're not home free.

Storm season officially started here on 1st October, and so far it has lived up to that name - a tornado in the N.S.W. central west a couple of weeks ago did a lot of damage, while two nights ago another storm has left, as they say in the media, a "trail of destruction in its wake". That one was in Armidale, just an hour north of us......and last night we thought for a while that we might join them, but fortunately the storm blew itself out and moved away. It has, however, left winter temperatures behind it.

It seems that when summer coming in meets winter going out, the weather can get a little bit volatile.

After watching various named hurricanes this fall take aim at Florida, Louisiana, and Texas, the usual route, we're in the wake of Hurricane Pamela that landed on the southwest coast of Mexico and drifted northeast and into Texas. The storms are lined up so the places they're traveling across are getting one rain shower after another (this is the "train" or "railroad" effect). Three to four inches so far in some areas.

meanwhile, I wonder how far Skarpi is from
the port town in southeastern Iceland
where Valli ('Wally') the Walrus climbed up onto a pier
and held court for a day or two.

The police had to cordon off the pier from the human sightseers.
Every so often, Valli would 'make a noise' of warning if people got too close for his liking.
Saw some still photos of Valli with his mouth shaped in the
noise-making position ... looks like he was saying something rude.

As if we havent had enough going on with drought, bushfires, Covid,and lockdown/s plus antivaxxers rioting over the past three days!

Here in the southern part of Oz yesterday we had an earthquake that was felt across three states. Fortunately, unlike Christchurch in NZ, no one was inured or killed.

Looking on the bright side at least the earthquake gave the media something else to talk about for a change :-)

delta covid is all around Sydney & large parts of the state, also other states.

Our vaccination plan is a shambles due to govt inaction, then people demanding "freedom" plus a smallish but very loud collection of anti-vaxxers have added to the problem.

The Delta variant is definitely doing us, all right.

I'm staying in Massachusetts, it's summertime, and the
transmission risks have changed accordingly.
The worst place to be is Cape Cod, because of
summer vacations and tourism; the counties around Cape Cod
have the highest risk designations in the state.
(Barnstable County)


My location in western Massachusetts, in New York, is moderate risk.
Could swing in either direction.
Summertime is a big tourist season here in Berkshire County,
so there is transmission of COVID happening.
I observe locally, however, that
businesses are requiring clients and customers to wear facemasks indoors; it had changed to facemask-free, and the restrictions are back.
Good idea. Better to contain transmission than to aggravate it.

Although, how you interpret the map makes a difference.

Vaccines do prevent death and morbid hospitalization infections.
The Delta Covid will still enter your body and multiply at a rate 1,000 times greater than original Covid. You then pose an even greater risk to unvaccinated people. When vaccinated it can not attach to your lung tissue so you may not even feel sick but boy oh boy are you infectious to others.

Those who know what they are talking about realize the unvaccinated world will be facing many infections for about 4 years. They also know there are lots of unknowns to face.

I have to admit the 'strategy' of this virus is brilliant and from a virus POV ideal. Nothing succeeds like success- which is all it is.

Skarpi, the advice Canadians are getting from our public health authorities is to expect the current vaccines to keep us out of hospital if we catch the virus. Because COVID-19 mutates quickly, and has different effects on different age groups, the kind of blanket immunity we get from a smallpox vaccination or a polio jab is not yet possible.

Remember that COVID-19 is a new disease, and the scientists are paddling as fast as they can.

those who are sick are people who already got 2 shots of either Astra,moderna, Jensen or Pfizer, so the question now is all though
we get less sick after the vaccine, are we just a lab rat´s for the drug firms, think of all the money they get for this, I have a second thought.


I have a feeling that some thing is very off, and when I get a feeling
It often turns out to be right .

Every state in the US except Utah have 32%-58% rise in an infection rate over these last 3 weeks. All the deaths (100%) are among the unvaccinated. Many of them are wonderful young people (14 to 40), just scared, misinformed or naive. The real ass holes are the ones who are vaccinated but influence others to not vaccinate. Then there are the stupid left over Trump believers who never will vaccinate.

Checking in from the State of Texas that has been in the news because of divisive GOP attempts to restrict voting. Gah.

The state has 42% of the population fully-vaccinated, with another 7% receiving at least one dose (of the 2-dose program). So I'm still wearing a mask in open public places, as much in solidarity as in protecting myself (you CAN catch COVID-19 if you have been vaccinated - it will make you sick but probably won't kill you.)

I've managed to build up my social life to the point that I'm out a couple of days a week working in a park or museum. There's something about having to prepare and go out and do whatever that makes the days I spend at home all the more precious. Today, more canning. I might pick enough peppers to make a second batch of salsa - the first batch has been a huge hit with my family.
