Holland America Cruisers -- How are things where YOU live?


Recommended Posts

I took a few days to head down to Seward, Alaska to go fishing.  The weather was glorious and driving into town, you would almost think things were back to normal (not talking about vaccines here).  The inconvenient truth of the pandemic was on display in Seward with business after business begging for help, limited hours, complete closings, limited closings and wait lines for grocery shopping and restaurants.  I like so many people would just love things to get back to being normal again.  When we drove out of town, I had mixed feelings about my few days in Seward.  On one hand it was great to get out and enjoy Seward, on the other hand, labor and supply chain shortages are sad truths that we have a long way to go.

We both got our second shot yesterday and are really looking forward to things getting back to normal as fast as possible. When we cruise next July we hope it will be as close to possible as it used to be, but I'm sure we will feel the after effects of this covid for awhile.

Yesterday at 5pm 117 deg F 12% humidity on my weather station.

NOT Phoenix or Las Vegas!

Hmmm,  12% humidity.  What we would give for 12% in Nashville. 

I've always assumed you are in Portland,  TN. (TN Titan)

Ugh.  We've got a special weather statement - rain this afternoon, heavy at times.  Amounts up to 50mm.  

Send some of that rain over here. We are extremely dry and the threat of forest fires is real and ever present. The weather charts have shown a huge high pressure are off the coast that forces all the rain north to Haida Gwaii and Alaska

How is everyone doing out there?  


We just got bumped from our next cruise (January 27, 2022 from Buenos Aires), so it looks like the next one is on the Nieuw Amsterdam May 15, 2022 in Alaska.  I'm super pumped to finally be able to get on a ship again.  Around here, central Missouri, USA, it seems like most restaurants and shops are short of staff, and so are closed at odd times.  We have several new places opening up, but definitely hope they can attract good staff.
