Moderna will supposedly charged around $35 per dose of their vaccine. 

Cha ching...

It’s all about the money, as usual. 
 

I will say this though, I’d like to think there will be some staying power for this vaccine. If we have to get a booster or something every 2 or 3 months for it to work I think we are in a lot of trouble.

While we are giving out plaudits and hazard pay, I'd like to thank the utility workers and dpw crews out there busting ass today.  And their spouses at home with the kids trying to work remote, on down the line.

Yes sir.

Fauci said 50% effectiveness would be a success.

I guess the only way to get below 90F is to have a tropical storm blow by. 

True!  Yesterday was a high in the 60s and today a high in the 70s!  Never thought it would be so hard to stay under 80F up here. 

76/58 is pretty nice today.

Should look at ACE more vs storm count. 

Yeah, shortys don’t exactly represent the same thing as long lived majors.

Yeah. ACE is the way to go because of storms like Gonzalo lol. CSU is expecting 8 more hurricanes, 5 of which are major, and 200 ACE. We’re actually well ahead climo normals for this point in the season with Hanna and Isaias leading. Not saying much because ACE really increases post Aug 20.

ACE should come around to impress too.

Ha, they were going down long before the pandemic. 
 

edit: I don’t mean that in a mean way,  it’s just that they have been struggling for a while.  
Information travels fast in the craft beer world. We thought they were done a year ago.

It wasn't surprising, It was surprising they lasted as long as they did considering the competition and their location.

Just saw that they are distributing to Mass now, trying to figure out how I can leave work and take a little 3 hour round trip to resupply my fridge now that power is back.

Always the contrarian. I did notice when I was searching for the nearest location on untapped that you rated it the same as the global average for Coors.

Nice, ORH.  

My wildlife includes accidentally leaving a can of Pringle’s by the pool this evening when the wife and I sat out for a drink.  A friend was dropping something off so we ran inside for a bit. 

I came back out a half hour later to clean up and the Pringle’s are gone.  No where to be found but I notice a paw print on the table.  Looking around I find the container along the woodline... damn bear stole them in the half hour we were chatting on the other side of the building!

Marty walsh apparently sent a cease and desist to a Boston harbor cruise company, that allegedly was operating at 1/3 capacity because he didn’t like the way the pictures looked with the amount of people. 
 

Apparently we have reached the politicians doing literally whatever they want when they want portion of the pandemic.

The quality has degraded to the point where it’s not drinkable. FOcal is decent, but I wouldn’t purposely seek it out 

It's time has passed.  Focal would be my choice between the two as well.

Ten Bends' Cream Puff War is the new "big" thing around here.  It is pretty damn tasty.

We've been at that stage since the beginning.  They do what they want or they don't do anything.  Either way they get roasted for it by some and praised by others.

I'm torn.  

I'm all for businesses being able to operate and for their owners/employees to earn a living.  However, that needs to be balanced with the general welfare of the public.  It's a delicate balance act - not one that I would want to do.  If a group of people do something stupid, that's their prerogative - usually.  Now, when people do stupid things, it has the potential to affect each and every one of us.  I don't know much more beyond that picture of the cruise with all of the passengers cramped together on the top deck.  At the very least, the company should have known that that image would generate bad PR.  Now it suffers the consequences of that oversight.

Exactly.  It's a lose-lose for them.  Locally, I think most public leaders have done a very good job, given the tough decisions to be made.

I’ll choose other brews over these 2 now.  There are so many more better options to choose from nowadays.  I don’t always agree with Rev but this is one time I do. Now back to your regularly scheduled damage discussion.
