  1. Me and my 7 yo get to go out in Casco Bay 1x a season on my buddies charter. First striper he's landed solo, earlier today.
  2. I can't help but wonder where Ida will sit on the most costliest storms list after its all said and done.
  3. It seems to work out for you in winter, where it counts. I guess I can't blame ya 1" is doable for you, but I think that's the high end. 2" is a little more doable for me, but even think that's the high end. Cheers.
  4. Since July? This is your play in every storm, regardless of season! Precip started an hour ago. Maybe give it until tomorrow to call bust?
  5. If that's the tiny amount of weeds you deem worth dumping herbicide into the ground for, you'd want to nuke my lawn at the mere sight of it, lol. Though it's never been more diverse and lush than this year with all the rain.
  6. Here's a June 2021 study: ' Face masks effectively limit the probability of SARS-CoV-2 transmission' https://science.sciencemag.org/content/372/6549/1439.full "Abstract Airborne transmission by droplets and aerosols is important for the spread of viruses. Face masks are a well-established preventive measure, but their effectiveness for mitigating severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) transmission is still under debate. We show that variations in mask efficacy can be explained by different regimes of virus abundance and are related to population-average infection probability and reproduction number. For SARS-CoV-2, the viral load of infectious individuals can vary by orders of magnitude. We find that most environments and contacts are under conditions of low virus abundance (virus-limited), where surgical masks are effective at preventing virus spread. More-advanced masks and other protective equipment are required in potentially virus-rich indoor environments, including medical centers and hospitals. Masks are particularly effective in combination with other preventive measures like ventilation and distancing."
  7. Found this to be an interesting article regarding the Provincetown outbreak that seemed to have a big impact in the CDC's new recommendations. Sorry if it's already been posted https://inguyun.medium.com/the-provincetown-outbreak-is-actually-good-news-if-you-are-vaccinated-93a1edd763b6 "Now, let’s look at the numbers. While Barnstable County overall has a 69% vaccination rate, Provincetown itself is 95% vaccinated. The demographics of the visitors — predominantly liberal gay men, a minority of liberal lesbians, and a further minority of liberal straight folks — is also likely to be close to 95% vaccinated. This was certainly true at the guest house where I stayed, and the one indoor show I attended, where everyone was vaccinated. Unfortunately too many people assumed that it was 100% all the time. There were 60,000 visitors to Provincetown during the period in question. That would translate to 57,000 vaccinated folks and 3,000 unvaccinated folks. How many tested positive for Covid? Current reports say about 750 vaccinated folks and 250 unvaccinated. This means that 750/57000 vaccinated folks tested positive, or 1.3%. 250/3000 unvaccinated folks tested positive, or 8.3%. Being vaccinated gave you a more than 6-fold protection against Covid than being unvaccinated. This is similar to the protection figures published in the early spring of 2021, before the Delta variant had any impact in this country. What about the hospitalizations? 6 vaccinated cases were hospitalized, out of 950 cases. That’s 0.6% of cases. Historically, 5% of Covid cases have resulted in hospitalization in the US. That’s a nine-fold improvement!"
  8. "A recent study out of Singapore: PCR cycle threshold (Ct) values were similar between both vaccinated and unvaccinated groups at diagnosis, but viral loads decreased faster in vaccinated individuals! Vaccines make you LESS infectious!" Study: https://t.co/8CHUIHMo98 Source: https://twitter.com/sailorrooscout/status/1421499506311548931 More push back against the CDC claim that vaccinated individuals can transmit Delta variant due to similar viral load as unvaccinated individuals: https://twitter.com/j_g_allen/status/1421435916816637960 No Twitter link: https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1421435916816637960.html ^ an interesting unreported aspect about the July 4th Ptown cluster is that 85% of cases are men. Yet even during its gayest week, Ptown is not 85% male tourists. IE, kissing (& sex) may have been a factor driving the outbreak. TL;DR vaxxed people are less infectious than unvaxxed.
  9. Chaco 'z' strap for life. Best of both worlds.
