That is really cold! Aren't you still in India? I know I am geographically challenged, but I didn't think it gets quite that cold in India. I know the southern part is more semi-tropical - probably, much like Florida. Are you in the mountains?
Yes, infection rates are up here, too, even though the traditional flu season hasn't begun in my state. We will see huge spikes after the first of the year. That's when our winter viruses kick in. Add Covid to the mix and it will be a rough winter.
Stay warm and safe ♥
