Is anyone out trying to skirt around where they are rioting? I got up this morning and the spousal unit says to stay home today because of the rioting in Tulsa OK. Of all places. I know that we have had the worst riot here a hundred years ago and they are finally finding the mass graves. Political riots instead of race riots at least here.
I had a shop postponed due to concerns over “civil unrest” but I think the client request came in pre-election. Trump’s legal options seem limited and unlikely to overturn enough votes to make a difference, especially if Biden maintains Arizona and Nevada, rendering the PA outcome meaningless. Republicans also got good news with their likely hold on the Senate. So I think the chances of widespread unrest are fairly low at this point. Occasional and deadly actions by the right-wing terrorists will probably continue - for instance the Jewish synagogue defaced with MAGA graffiti on Election Eve - but they seem to strike anywhere and are often lone wolves so I won’t be rearranging my life to avoid them.
No rioting here. I hope we don't see it elsewhere either, as virus cases are at 80 and 90K+ the past 10 days or so (breaking all previous records) and we're in a U.S. third wave with many local hospitals struggling with capacity.

Texas is fine for now. Next week; who knows? I am just booking out west Texas for next week where towns are too small and too far away to riot. I only have to worry if Mexico decides to invade. I am more worried about everything getting shut down again so I am doing as much as I can while the work is here.
