People in NYC are saying the subways have never been cleaner, which is a good thing. They used to be loaded with mold and people got sick just being underground so much.
That's one good thing. Too bad it took something like this to actually sanitize that Petri dish of stuff. I bet it also doesn't reek of homeless people's urine and feces any more either.
Not now, apparently.
The flip side of that is, I wonder how many homeless are going to freeze to death now that winter is here in many places, and virus is still spreading like wildfire wherever people are crowded cheek by jowl. Not just virus but the usual scourge of the homeless - tuberculosis, assorted pneumococcal infections, and whatever one gets from a lifetime of street drug abuse, smoking, and just plain old exposure to the elements in whatever nooks and crannies they have to hide in now.
In Fargo, maybe. In California, not so much.
Yellowknife, Yukon territory. Thule, Greenland. Barrow, Alaska.
All those places with the coldest temperatures.
and of course the all day freezing on Tuesday most of West Texas and southeastern NM
Couldn’t you plan for the cold weather?
Well, we planned for it - in early December, when it's normally scheduled, because usually we have to run the air conditioner for at least 2 weeks after Halloween. And most of the time trees don't shed their leaves until after Black Friday.
