The way ahead, as you'll observe, is blocked by a thick bank of cloud. Or, to be more exact, the mountains are hidden behind the bank, but the cloud represents how thwarted we felt today to get an email, first thing, saying that we could schedule a vaccination today! But ... that would be at USC, 880 miles away. Or tomorrow, or Wednesday, or Thursday ... the problem being, of course, teaching, let alone packing up the house and driving (through more snow). And they can't say whether vaccines will be on offer next week, because no one knows anything much, given uncertainties around supply. All the same, we will try to head West at the end of the week, and hope that we get lucky, very soon.
