Apocalypse Blog – Day 14

We had a blackout last night. As far as I could see, darkness, no streetlights, no house lights, nothing. Normally when this happens, it’s after a bad storm or high winds but it was as still as could be last night; maybe someone hit a telephone pole but it was really widespread. Again, nothing on […]

Apocalypse Blog – Day 13

I went out for a ride early this morning. The heat is already building here and it was eighty degrees at nine in the morning so I wanted to get this tour of the city done before it was too hot to handle. The temperatures are astounding when you consider that it’s not summer. Once […]

Apocalypse Blog – Day 12

Have you ever had one of those days where you feel like you’re in a dream but can’t wake up? It’s one of those situations where everything SEEMS utterly unreal but also plausible at the same time. You want to deny your reality and see something ridiculous like a clown on a unicycle ride by […]

Apocalypse Blog – Day 11

Someone was scratching at my side door late last night. I was having this weird dream about octopuses—octopi?—more than one octopus, and there was this sound like someone dragging a board full of nails across a rough wooden surface. I fully woke up after the sound totally overwhelmed my dream only to find that the […]

Apocalypse Blog – Day 10

I’m sorry that I haven’t been as diligent in my posting as during the first week of this lockdown. Things are really getting weird out there and I, like many of you, have been focused on finding enough supplies to make it through until the quarantine ends. My friends on Facebook around the country tell […]

Apocalypse Blog – Day 6

I’m a bit down because last night the online news informed us that the governor does not believe that thirty days is going to be a sufficient shutdown to stop the virus from spreading uncontrolled. Does he realize that some of us do not qualify for unemployment insurance? I think I’ve got about ninety dollars […]

Apocalypse Blog – Day 5

Vegas is one of the most exciting and active cities I’ve ever seen in my life—just not last night. My neighborhood is full of restaurants, grocery stores, and other necessary businesses so everything is open and life seems normal except for all the people with face masks. Las Vegas Boulevard just demonstrated how radically different […]

Apocalypse Blog – Day 4

Did you see that explosion last night? I was sitting on my deck drinking a cool one and watching the dog patrol for intruding neighborhood cats when the night lit up as bright as day. I’m assuming you saw it too, hell I think everyone on this side of the country must have seen it. […]

Apocalypse Blog – Day 3

Great, my cable is out. The corps might not be allowed to disconnect my electricity but I guess cable doesn’t count as life and death to them. Admittedly, I was a month behind before the quarantine was announced, but you’d think they would cut a guy a break and leave the cable on so I […]

Apocalypse Blog – Day 2

OMG, people are crazy! I went out to the grocery store last night after posting to get some veggies and lunchmeat and the store was like something out of a bad disaster movie. Picture this. The parking lot is jammed with cars and trucks totally ignoring the spaces. They’re lined up at the curb, sitting […]
