Pandemic Day 140: Storms

I didn’t make it to the theater last weekend because of a hurricane. As Hurricane Douglas headed toward Oahu yesterday, the Hawaii Shakespeare Festival had to cancel Sunday night’s Zoom performance of “As You Like It.” People were taking shelter, taking in anything that might blow away, and preparing for a possible power outage. Luckily the storm just brushed by the islands. But it reminded me that maybe this is a good time to take a look at the “cytokine storm” we hear so much about.
