Virus, Weather, Retraction
Monday, July 06, 2020
Let me start with the retraction--I wrote a post about July 4th no one getting shot by a stray bullet and then today the lead story in the news was a 7-year-old swimming in his grandmother's pool was shot by a stray bullet. He wasn't killed but the bullet went through his arm. Imagine how the grandmother felt! I don't know about where you live but in South Florida they celebrate July 4th shooting their guns and pistols. There are usually half a dozen fatalities!
We started off the weekend with a notice on our doors telling us there are more people with the virus at Gateway. No names, no what building there are in, no who they may have interacted with so now people aren't talking to each other!
The summer rains have finely come. We get dark clouds coming in as an advance warning, then some thunder and lightning followed by about 30 minutes of very heavy rain followed by the sun coming out and the humidity going high. It can happen either in the morning and/or usually around 5 PM. We used to call it tourist rain when it happened around 5 because it got the tourists off the beach into their hotel so they could shower, take a nap and then go out for dinner. The two pictures on the right were taken at 11 AM!!
