A fabulous piece written by a long-ago classmate from UMass, truly worth the quick read. Was so very glad to see this via Facebook.
UNC cancelling in-person classes after one week; making all kinds of national headlines, of course, as a major university.
ECU reporting a cluster at a freshman dorm. Students (that’s where all students in my frosh class live) are, of course, frightened (if not terrified).
Just such an impossible situation.
After Isaias, then a rare derecho storm in the midwest causing people to be without power for over a week now.
CA experiencing rolling power blackouts during an incredible heatwave–friends reporting temps between 105-110.
Incredible numbers of people without jobs. None able to find work. Electricity bills soaring with the heat, the wifi, more people home; less money coming in.
Half-expect to see boils, lice, and frogs (already had locusts in Africa.
Biblical times, these are.
