I had a three-day weekend with out of town company. It was great.
But, back to the real world…
There are 66 cases of swine flu in the U.S. now. It doesn’t seem to be spreading very quickly, which is good. There aren’t any cases identified in Florida yet, which is surprising – there’s quite a bit of travel between here and Mexico. I expect we’ll end up with at least a few cases.
The answer to the title question is – no one knows yet if this is the big flu pandemic we’ve all been waiting for. I have to say, I feel pretty good about the preparations I’ve made so far, including the N-95 masks I got a few months ago. I have a few more things I’d like to have in the house, which I’ll get over the next few days, and then I’ll feel completely ready, regardless of what happens.
So now we wait.
