I am trying not to be bitter and angry as I see all the out of state license plates as the tourists start to pour in for the holiday weekend. I get especially angry when I see plates from states with growing COVID-19 cases. I really wish they would stay home. Up here we are fairly isolated so we haven’t been hit hard. But I am willing to bet that after this week and weekend we will see a very large spike in cases.
Local government and the State government both require travelers to self isolate for 2 weeks after their arrival. No one is going to do that if they are only up here for the week or weekend. Hell I doubt if they would do it anyway! I understand that people are a bit stir crazy from all this but now they are putting all of us at risk just so they can have a good time. And once everyone gets drinking I’m pretty sure that social distancing will be forgotten.
It is so frustrating to be doing the right thing and seeing that it is working then in a matter of days it all gets thrown to the wind because people from out of town come up here and don’t give a damn. They might be forced to wear masks at home but by God they are on vacation! They don’t have to! Besides, everyone up here is relatively healthy so they don’t have to worry about catching anything. Selfish bastards.
I apologize for the rant. The kids and I ran to the vet to get their monthly medicine and M72 was packed with tourists. I even saw plates from Texas and that really got me going because Texas and California are the two hot spots (oh and Florida) for the new outbreaks that are getting out of hand. Yes, please come and share. Grrrr… And the fireworks. The dogs don’t like it any more that the vets with PTSD. But no one bothers to think about that. Especially right now. With everything going on it is showing how selfish people can be.
Chris has the rest of the week off. If he wants to go anywhere I might have to say no unless we are riding the motorcycles. And even then I will probably refuse to get off and go in anywhere. Atleast on an a motorcycle I have my helmet and such. I have fussed enough. Thanks so much for listening. Stay safe!
