Finally finished kit bashing a warehouse for my model railroad, Richmond, Romeo & Rochester. Next time my son comes over I’ll post pictures in the Model Railroading section.

New York too. The Governor there has already declared a state of emergency for Omicron and nobody really knows exactly how dangerous it may or may not be yet. Reacting for the sake of reacting.

According to an article by Reuters, a South African doctor says she’s seen many patients with the new variant and she says it’s VERY mild symptoms

I’ve heard the general trend for precautions will not include lockdowns anylonger. The logic included with the argument being that with a majority of the population vaccinated the threat simply is no longer as serious.

my bro in law has pneumonia again, 2nd time in 4 months. another friend has bad lung issues now(emphysema) after what was likely covid, didn’t get tested. I don’t want these long term lung issues interfering with biking.

kind of at least, jetlink. covid first strand wasn’t as bad as Delta though it seems, but let’s hope this one takes over and has less symptoms and less deaths.

Hasn’t that kind of been the case with the virus in general. It gets more contagious but less serious.

that’s what happens with all other virus, gets less serious as times go on

Not a good survival strategy in general. If your kill your host your ability to survive as a "species" is not as good as if you just co habitate with it.

Seems to be a hallmark of viruses in general.

that’s actually kinda good news, which means the virus is somewhat starting to die out
