How the Flu Spreads

I found this fact to be very interesting. It was published in the December 2010 issue of AARP. (I still can’t figure out why I’m getting THAT magazine. I certainly don’t feel 50!)

The flu moves in waves across the country. It starts and peaks in Nevada and works its way east. It takes approximately 4 weeks to spread across the nation.

That leaves me wondering, how do we Californians get it if we’re west of Nevada?
