  1. Merry Christmas in July. Same exact weather as Christmas in December.
  2. i'm vaccinated ya dingus. The notion of federally mandating a vaccine is lunacy in this country, that's my only point.
  3. post like you live in North Korea
  4. Ironic that DIT mentioned sheep.. here is your sheep.
  5. you can't compare anything from this summer to last -apples and oranges. For the most part, there were no concerts, no major indoor sporting events, and very few indoor weddings or other large gatherings last summer. people have moved on - vaccinated or not - and things are open. of course cases are going to go up.
  6. If you're under the pavillion the sound is good. the sight lines and sound on the lawn leave a lot to be desired, but it's been 10 years since ive been so maybe they've made some changes. iirc, they have an early-ish curfew - 10 i believe. parking lot is laid back fwiw.
  7. first shot across the bow of summer
  8. just remember there are people willing to pay for that type of thing...consider the free version a win.
  9. Here's a reassuring article on breakthrough cases in Utah that includes references to recent studies done elsewhere on breakthrough cases, and why "breakthrough" is a bit of a misnomer:https://www.sltrib.com/news/2021/07/16/andy-larsen-breakthroughSome excerpts:"The abundance of mild cases among the fully vaccinated has led some scientists to argue that we should redefine “breakthrough” cases. Their point is that some large percentage of these positive tests are actually only infecting people in their upper respiratory tract, where the primary immune system that reigns is mucosal immunity, not the blood-based immunity that the vaccines create. In other words, it’s not that these infections are “breaking through” the protection built by the vaccine, they just never reach it at all. It’s an interesting argument."The study:https://www.jci.org/articles/view/151186Another excerpt from the above article regarding a recent study of breakthrough cases in Israel:Avg age of hospitalized breakthroughs in Israel = 71. Most had preexisting comorbidities."...it’s generally those who were at highest risk of hospitalization before who need to worry most about breakthrough infections.To wit, in the Israel study, there were six people who were hospitalized with breakthrough infections of COVID-19 without comorbidities, and all six have had what the study called “good outcomes.”
  10. Ah ok, goal posts start moving when I said something. "Huge risky hassle to walk down the street in a place like San Fran" = going near a homeless encampment? San Fran crime is up, fine, but are you genuinely afraid to walk down a city street, or go into a public space because they're "chock full of outbursts" in your day to day? It happens, I get it. Inherent risk with living life, just like getting COVID. Live your life however you want / need to feel safe; but you make it seem like it's wayyyyy worse than it actually is. I live in a great city and that definitely impacts my own perception, but I travel around to other cities too. I'm also out in my community every day - even sometimes working with *gasp* those scary homeless peoples.
  11. Has it happened? Sure has. The chances of you experiencing it day-to-day are slim. Perception of it happening regularly is (over) amplified by social media. There are people who get sucked into believing what they see online is real life, fear it, and adjust their activities and plans based on this perceived risk of encountering it. Exhibit A below. I'm lucky to live in a place where public spaces aren't "chock full of little outbursts." But I was also walking and biking the streets of San Fran a year ago without concern, either.
  12. Edit to my original post - he videotaped the beating, not the attempted rape. This article says he was there for both, though. "He was named in the police report filed by the survivor, a report which also noted her physical condition" https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.beyondtheboxscore.com/platform/amp/2020/2/6/21124292/red-sox-dodgers-alex-verdugo-the-unspoken-problem-with-the-mookie-betts-david-price-trade
  13. Verdugo once videotaped the sexual assault of a underaged woman instead of stopping it. 0 sympathy for that POS.
  14. Right there with you brother
  15. haven't heard anything like that locally. in fact, our district said no mask requirement for fall. said nothing about vax, though. Don't even have one for elementary age anyways.
  16. Where can I find historical month vs. average precip & temps for NE climo sites? TIA
  17. Link to where i disagreed with you or copy of my Vax Gang membership card. Thx
  18. Is Phin a successful troll-er and troll-ee simultaneously? Impressive, tbh. Maybe put your money where your mouth is, catch the Delta, and write a blog on your experience? Thx. Either that or consider giving it a rest, champ.
  19. Two weeks: One Month: Source: https://hprcc.unl.edu/maps.php?map=ACISClimateMaps
  20. Yes. Stein is real and ever-present up here.
  21. 0.86" here as well. I think those model runs were through Monday. More on the way for us overnight Saturday.
  22. time sensitive.... Am I seeing this correct - sea breeze pushing up near the CT/MA border, bumping into outflow of existing storms, causing a new line to fire up? https://weather.cod.edu/satrad/?parms=local-Rhode_Island-comp_radar-24-1-100-1&checked=map&colorbar=undefined
  23. 85/72. let's pop a 90 by 9.
