In Colorado this week there have been several test runs of Covid vaccine delivery. Packages frozen like the Pfizer vaccine have been tracked and delivered from Denver to points in the mountains, each tracked by a GPS card that continually provides exact temperature and location.
All went as expected, but it must be noted it was not snowing in the mountains. When the snow does finally come, as it surely will, one wonders if everyday vehicles will be able to make those critical deliveries to mountain communities.
Hence the cartoon. Dogsleds may not be so old-fashioned after all. Balto and his canine friends successfully delivered diphtheria antitoxin to Nome, Alaska, back in 1925, so there is certainly precedent.
Mush, you huskies!!
