If I had my way we would be out there now possibly living in Florida.

Here, in our County in Florida, they are offering the vaccine today and tomorrow, at an outside football stadium. 1000 a day. Police were stationed outside and where preventing people from camping out back to Saturday. Running people off. They reached capacity by 0600 this morning. For 65+. Many from outside our County. 
 

I’ll wait for an appointment.

I don't blame you with all those people queuing some might have covid19.

just made the devastating choice to cancel our September Maldives hotel. 😭 We had gotten such an amazing deal with Chase points, but flights are just non existent now and the ones that are are so outrageous. It’s so weird to not have the next 2 years of vacations scheduled already.

That stinks!!     I keep hearing alot of airlines are changing their flight plans as they scramble to figure out what flights will be most profitable.   I'm sure we will see some great deals in the future.

For now, we just keep racking up points with amex and chase.

We drove down to the beach yesterday and stopped by a new to us brew pub.  The food was good and I found a beer I really liked.  We will have to do that more often.

My kids (daughter/SIL/Grands and SIL family) just returned from week vacation Winter Park Colorado. They flew Sunday after Christmas. Daughter says airplane packed, no open seats, no temperature check, no health questions.

Let’s try to keep the political/covid related talk off of here. Many other threads are already handling it.
 

We don’t need this thread locked down, as it will still be active months from now.

I agree to a point. The vaccination process is now part of our daily routine. It’s in our mind and important to most of us how different parts of the country are dealing with that process and I personally like getting the shared info.

I agree, because it is. I was also interested about the 1% that Dani was sharing.  As well as what those in other countries are going through to get their jabs. 
 

I’d love to blast my countries politicians and other idiots but I don’t on this thread. It’s not the right spot.

Sad...but true.  I have heard the same from my brother who frequently travels for work.

1% after 8 days is concerning.   Knowing most vaccines take 2 weeks to be effective, hopefully that 1% will drastically improve in coming days.

I hope your brother is okay.

This is worrying and shows how vital the vaccine is needed.

Andrew, I'm well aware of the rules, and I'm "threading" (pun intended) very carefully, while trying to impart "routine" in this part of the world. Mainly because as of now, Israel is way ahead of the WHOLE world in terms of the amount of vaccines distributed.

 

In a matter than less than 3 weeks, there is a huge population that Pfizer and medical teams can glean some new info from, which will benefit ALL of us.

Thanks for keeping us informed Dani.

Isarel is by far a very advanced as Scientific and Engineering Country. I was amazed the advancements that come from you guys.

I think this is very important to know.  I don’t want you to think I do not find this fascinating, in an unfortunate way. Hopefully you can share how her rates have increased over the next week or so.  I read a Canadian article the other day how you have already vaccinated a very large portion of your population, even using mobile van clinics.  Yesterday  M8, on a different thread, discussed with another if the needle stops one from transmitting Covid. He got some thumbs up from me, because it is unknown and not gospel.  Factual is so important these days.  All Politicians across the board have a hard time with this. 

 

LOL, now I’ve brought religion into the discussion.  🤦‍♂️😂

I am pretty sure that is not white sand. 


Had that been my video I would have had to mute the microphone, because the words from my mouth would not be appropriate.

What a difference a day makes.  This is the point where I was really tempted to turn the car around.  

On one of our drives home our daughter (probably 6 or 7 at the time) fell asleep when it was still relatively warm with no snow.  When she woke up there was snow everywhere and she burst into tears.  She thought that winter was over and the warm weather was following us home.

That's exactly how I feel when I get home to PA from a winter cruise in the caribbean.

So for those missing travel, here are a few photos and video from our northward trek today. 
 

I-95 southbound was almost at a standstill in South Carolina.

I-95 at I-26, people decided to pile into the median.

 

 

I-26, someone had an uh oh with their trailer.  Surprised it didn’t roll. 
 

 

 

 

 

That intersection from I-26 to I-95 southbound has always been a backed up nightmare each time we have taken it.  We just expect it before we get there now.  😞
