Almost a Guide (5/10)



  1. I’ll bet. In contrast to a Generac, it wasn’t much fun filling a small generator every 8 hours around the clock from Saturday afternoon until Thursday for the fridge and freezer, but I will certainly take that inconvenience over the extensive damage that some others suffered. I heard that winds hit 120 to 130 km per hour in some spots close by. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of winds at speeds that high in the Kawartha Lakes area before.
  2. Once a year, they do go on sale, but you never know when in advance.
  3. Hey, I think that brings us full circle. If I remember correctly, that’s where you were right before getting ready to high tail it back to Ontario before the borders closed about two years ago.
  4. … in Florida https://weather.com/news/weather/video/freeze-warning-deep-into-florida-sunday-morning
  5. I notice that Walmart has several air fryers on for close to half price today. I don’t know anything about these though. https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/kalorik-maxx-digital-air-fryer-oven-with-10-accessories-afo-50967-ss-stainless-steel/6000203449373 https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/frigidaire-25l-stainless-steel-air-fryer-oven-stainless-steel/6000203031384 https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/kalorik-digital-air-fryer-ft-50533-bk-black/6000203418179
  6. I had sure hoped to see cases dwindle right off as more and more people got vaccinated, but even vaccinated people are still getting sick, it seems. This really stinks. 639 new cases in Ontario today. 125 of the 639 were fully-vaccinated. 0 new deaths were reported today. 151 hospitalized COVID-19 patients are in the ICU. 82 of those ICU patients are on a ventilator. The Test positivity rate is 2.8%. source: https://toronto.ctvnews.ca/mobile/ontario-reports-more-than-600-new-covid-19-cases-for-fourth-straight-day-1.5557613
  7. There was apparently some tornado damage in Barrie a short while ago https://www.cbc.ca/amp/1.6104484

  9. Did you get it on one of your tied flies?
  10. That was pretty close to my experience with mRNA shot #2. I couldn’t sleep on the injection arm, and the day after felt pretty rough and achy and I registered a 38 C fever too. Then, the second day after the shot, everything was back to normal. I’m still in the 2 week post-vaccine period prior to reaching the expected immunity boost.
  11. The U.S. loaned Canada 1.5 million AstraZeneca doses because the U.S. has not approved that vaccine for distribution in the U.S. as of yet. They passed some to Mexico as well.
  12. It looks like Haldimand and Norfolk are using their own booking tool, not the provincial one, but they do offer online booking to people 70 and over (I have no idea how old you are): “The HNHU’s COVID-19 Vaccination Online Booking tool is now live. The online booking tool allows eligible candidates to book their vaccination appointment online at any of the mass clinic or hospital hub sites. The Online Booking tool is available here: https://hnhu.org/covid19vaccine/.” Source: https://hnhu.org/health-topic/coronavirus-covid-19/vaccination-rollout-in-haldimand-and-norfolk/ They also offer a stand-by wait list if you’re open to a short notice dash out for your vaccine. “The Haldimand-Norfolk Vaccine Task Force has launched a waitlist to ensure all available vaccine doses are administered. Currently, we are accepting the names and contact information for individuals who are aged 65-69 years (born in the years 1952-1956.)” www.hnhu.org/vaccinewaitlist If you are under 70, you may be able to book an AstraZeneca shot at a pharmacy (if you are at least 55 years old). There’s at least 3 pharmacies in each health unit. https://covid-19.ontario.ca/vaccine-locations
  13. There was no official flu season in 2020/2021, because the case counts remained below the threshold required to declare the start of one: https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/services/diseases/flu-influenza/influenza-surveillance/weekly-influenza-reports.html
  14. Vaccinations in Ontario have focused mainly on congregate settings (long term care homes, for example) and front line health care workers and first responders. The general population isn’t receiving them in very many places yet. I think the wide-spread vaccinations of the over-85 group in the general population (rather than in congregate care) is expected to ramp up on or after March 15. Vaccinations for younger groups will be in 5-year successive groupings after each older age group has been offered their shot. They may jump right down to the 60-65 age group for the Astra-Zeneca vaccine and work down from there with that one. Right now, if a person in Ontario were to receive their 1st shot tomorrow, their 2nd shot (and maximum immunization) could be as far away as early July. Ontario has decided to delay the second dose by up-to-4 months and use the currently available doses as 1st shots for more people. I would not be expecting the hoopla in Ontario to be ended by May. The majority of people you encounter in Ontario in May will not have been vaccinated, unless something really changes with the pace.
