PBS: CDC shortens official COVID quarantine guidance
"Released today, the new guidelines for respiratory viruses such as flu and RSV state that individuals who are sick should stay home and away from other people. But if someone has been fever-free and without symptoms for at least 24 hours, they don’t need to quarantine if they limit contact with others, mask up, test and avoid indoor spaces if possible for the next five days. If their symptoms rebound, the clock starts over. "
As I suspected, we're stalled out (now one week delay, unclear how much longer) in our disaster remodeling because the contractor failed to order the carpet early enough. In chess, we would call them a one-move-ahead player (ie only able to look at the move they are on), versus a 3-4 move ahead player (anticipating possible issues/problems ahead of time). #disasterremodeling #planning #projectmanagement

A Bandelier photo from a different location than yesterday's. This view shows the Long House ruins at the foot of rhyolite tuff cliffs. Look carefully and you may see horizontal rows of holes carved in the cliff to support roof beams. See the link for more info:

@ai6yr Good morning! Quiet and chilly here in the Glen!
Burn marks are rarely a good sign. This was the controller for one of the heating elements on my stove.
My colleagues and I finished assessing damages from the January 2024 Winter Ice and Wind #storms... Wow. Some municipalities saw 3-4" of ice accumulation over a few days and near total loss of their urban tree canopies. If you've been to western #Oregon You know there's a ton of trees :(
~60% of assessed damages were from public utility providers' electrical distribution systems. I'm envisioning a future of buried lines.
What a week!
