Finally finished kit bashing a warehouse for my model railroad, Richmond, Romeo & Rochester. Next time my son comes over I’ll post pictures in the Model Railroading section.

New York too. The Governor there has already declared a state of emergency for Omicron and nobody really knows exactly how dangerous it may or may not be yet. Reacting for the sake of reacting.

According to an article by Reuters, a South African doctor says she’s seen many patients with the new variant and she says it’s VERY mild symptoms

I’ve heard the general trend for precautions will not include lockdowns anylonger. The logic included with the argument being that with a majority of the population vaccinated the threat simply is no longer as serious.

my bro in law has pneumonia again, 2nd time in 4 months. another friend has bad lung issues now(emphysema) after what was likely covid, didn’t get tested. I don’t want these long term lung issues interfering with biking.
@ ~Z~ « Sun 10:28:22 am »
kind of at least, jetlink. covid first strand wasn’t as bad as Delta though it seems, but let’s hope this one takes over and has less symptoms and less deaths.

Hasn’t that kind of been the case with the virus in general. It gets more contagious but less serious.

that’s what happens with all other virus, gets less serious as times go on
@ Jetlink « Sun 9:21:42 am »
Not a good survival strategy in general. If your kill your host your ability to survive as a "species" is not as good as if you just co habitate with it.

Seems to be a hallmark of viruses in general.

that’s actually kinda good news, which means the virus is somewhat starting to die out
@ ~Z~ « Sun 8:47:30 am »
in south africa, far less likely to get hospitalized if vaccinated, so same deal with how it’s going here in the States

Amtrak most likely 353 cleared the Michigan line onto the Chicago line just before he (326) got the light at the junction.

Looks like 326 getting on to the pere marqutte from the chicago line at porter right now.

Live from Chesterton. Going to go take a walk. :). Fourth out now for a call.
@ Jetlink « Sat 2:31:10 pm »
Yeah Z it is. I do it to myself though. I dont have to bid the on call schedules. I could have a regular flying line. Sometimes to get the days off i want it is a necessary thing. Usually had been always flying anyway. So it wasnt a big deal. The double time though changed everything and nobody saw it coming.

so you’ll just hang in Chesterton or something until called? That's gotta be the roughest part of not living near where you work.

@ Jetlink « Sat 10:05:15 am »
Miraculously all the open time was covered as soon as it was announced it paid double time.
@ Jetlink « Sat 10:04:44 am »
Company didn’t want a melt down this weekend so all flying is paying either double time or time and a half. sick calls are only paying straight time.
@ Jetlink « Sat 10:03:49 am »
No open time at all and about 6th out for today and 12th out for tomorrow.
@ Jetlink « Sat 9:59:53 am »
heading to worky soon. 4 days on call and little chance of a trip.

326 made it no problem, just because it’s a long train doesn’t mean it’s all loads
