Our current rain year ending October 1 has SFO getting 9.17 inches of water. Our normal is 20.65.

I consider it a drought year.

The 2019-2020 snow season ended with a few regions in snow drought, including part of the Lower Colorado River Basin in Arizona and New Mexico, the Sierra Nevada, the Great Basin, parts of the Cascade Range, and south Central Alaska. In terms of total snow covered area for the western United States as a whole from MODIS satellite data, from mid-winter through the melt season this year wound up being not too far from average when considering the 2001-2019 distribution.


The Saturday update shows no change to speak of:

Cases: 9,522 (up 445 in a week)
R-eff: .99 (doesn't seem to make a difference if it's .77 or .99 in new cases)
Positivity: 5.7% (very, very stable)
Burlingame cases: 215 (up 26 in a week)

It's pretty amazing that gyms and churches cannot open with the standard precautions. Well-spaced indoor dining (25% of normal capacity) would probably work as well.


After the first month when we’d lowered the curve for hospital beds would’ve been nice.

This has been one big experiment making people dependent on big government and ruining individual responsibility and entrepreneurship.

I suspect socialists, unions and government employees.
And China. The direct hit to our economy, sense of unity and national mood is too targeted to not be planned and coordinated.

There's a .01% chance of rain, I'm appalled no one outside is using an umbrella.

Once again, comedy telling more truths than the MSM


It was a big week for Covid-19 news as San Mateo County went to "Red" and more businesses can do limited openings--including movie theaters! Gyms and churches continue to be over-controlled......

Here's the Saturday update:

Cases: 9843 (up 321 this week, so a definite slowdown)

R-eff: .94 (magically dropping a little)

Positivity: 5.7% (exactly flat)

Burlingame Cases: 223 (up 8 for the week)


Good job everybody.

We've destroyed millions upon millions of lives. Hint: its not all about deaths, its about how we live. Put masks on babies in carriages, crapped out on education that was already a joke, and built the biggest cult of muzzled fools this planet has ever seen, the Branch Covidians. Remind me not to vote for any democrat. They all supported it. I'm looking at you jackie...
