I walked the dog earlier in the morning than usual. I was working on the puzzle of coverage at my day job. These were not normal times, any person on the team could get sick. They could be amongst the 20% hospitalization rate or 2% casualty rate. How did you plan based on that?
It reminded me of a story I had read of a great wave that decimated an island. It started with the water drawing back, leaving a quiet surreal peaceful feeling.
People walked out to the places that used to be covered in ocean. Fish and other sea creatures floundered on the sand.
The thing I remember, which may or may not have actually been in the story, was that it was too late at that point for the people exploring. Unbeknownst to them a ‘wave’, or really a towering wall of water, was hurdling toward them.
It would be pure luck if they survived.
Perhaps they could notice the water and anticipate what was coming and try to increase their odds by going uphill or securing themselves to a heavy object. Or even better, They could’ve listened to the stories of the people before them. And took actions based on those stories
I’ve been listening to those stories. Stay safe.
