But we had a little sun today. It helped. My mood, I mean. And it was warm. Our high was 79˚F, and it's still 65˚F.
I went out with Kathryn to the market for what will likely be our last big laying in of supplies for the next two or three weeks. It was a mildly surreal experience. I have never seen a market utterly denuded of potatoes. Anyway, at least the "social distancing" part is easy for me. I've been social distancing (id est, keeping to myself) for decades. I'm waiting to hear whether or not McWane will be closed by Wednesday. This is the beginning of, I fear, the third most terrible event to occur on US soil during my fifty-six years, following only after 9/11 and the election of Donald Trump. I'm almost more afraid of the economic chaos that will follow from Covid-19 than I am of the virus itself. Certainly, damage to both the world's and the US' economy during the next several months may ultimately kill many more people than the disease itself.
Tonight, we finished ZeroZeroZero. There was much to admire, and I especially liked the series' nonlinear narrative, but, ultimately, it was at least twice as long as it needed to be. Those eight episodes should have been four. And it was woefully thin on characterization. Now we're watching Season two of Kingdom. So far, it's even better than Season One.
