Still in it…
I should have added a photo like this a while back. As the recommendations have improved, Alexandria seems to have done a good job at paying attention.
I think the dining outside, spread out, started to be allowed last summer. Alexandria decided to close off this block of King St. to open up more space for that.
As the weather has cooled, the tents were moved in. We’ve rarely tried the tent dining, preferring take out, but this seems like a reasonable approach.
Of course, we’d love to see the vaccine fully rolled out and the pedestrian block stay so we can enjoy more outdoor dining with the pandemic behind us.

Still looking at this
I stopped posting this chart last fall because I kept waiting for that 7 day moving average to drop down and stay down below 10 new cases a day. It kept looking close.
But then the fall wave really hit and it sky rocketed.
Now at least it looks like we’re going back down. But that 10 new cases per day is still a long way away.
I know new positives is not the best measure now, and artificially high compared to a year ago as testing has become much more available.
And it’s great that the vaccine is rolling out; thank you Sarah and the volunteer Alexandria medical corps working the PoDs (place of distribution).
It’s looking better, but seems like we still have a ways to go.

Now it’s just ice
This weekend has been icy…
The snow melted, it warmed up a bit for a few days and then…
The temps dropped and we got freezing rain, sleet and a fair amount of ice.
Fortunately, so far, not enough to take out power for us.
