Like greatcoastal I am paying attention to Isaias. Looks like it will be arriving in NC mid next week. Looking at the forecast I see lots of rain in the days ahead, but not too much wind. Probably the only things that might end up upside down will be the trash cans. Not so much fun rescuing them.

The eye of Tropical storm Isaias is almost passed us. We experienced 4 or 5 short,heavy,sideways, bursts of rain, with mild 20MPH winds. Like a typical summer thunderstorm here in Florida! Practically all the stores remained open. No power was lost, not even a flicker of power.
With the Tropical storm turning counterclockwise 90% of the heavy storms stayed further east out in the Atlantic. Much of Fl. remained dry. No damage anywhere, even the sands on the beaches still look good!
Personally, I haven't owned a TV for years, it's good to not be bombarded by all the hype of storm warnings.
notdeadyet: I saw a bumper sticker on an old pickup truck years ago that I always think of in this context. It said: "I feel much better since I gave up hope." How many of us have come to that conclusion?

DryCreek: I suppose that’s a variation on “Expectations are the source of all disappointment.”

DryCreek: (I think that might be a Buddhist expression. It’s true, really. I think it’s reasonable to have expectations, but when you get to choose the yardstick that will determine your happiness, then disappointment really is in your control.)

jerri: Anyone get their vaccine?
Jan 18, 2021 0:50:18 GMT -5
Handy: The medical workers are still getting the available vaccine. The older population and high risk people might start getting the vaccine om Jan 20 or Jan 22 in my area.
Jan 18, 2021 15:05:22 GMT -5
jerri: My husband, step-son, and his wife all got theirs. I am left, but I am sure it will be awhile. Great news Handy good luck everyone.

tooyoungtobeold: I got my first Covid vaccine (Moderna version) about a week and a half ago.
Jan 20, 2021 16:59:41 GMT -5
Handy: I called for a Covid vaccine appointment. All of the vaccines were spoken for. Maybe next week or the week after that and so on.

worksforme2: I fall into the 1b grouping, the 2nd tier of recipients in NC. I'm behind the essential 1a group consisting of medical, 1st responders, grocery clerks, etc, and people in prison. Maybe by July, August if I'm lucky.

jerri: Handy, we have a website you can sign up on. They call when it is your turn, any chance you have something like that?
Jan 21, 2021 13:28:32 GMT -5
jerri: worksforme2, you are behind people in prison? WOW looks like most would have better immunity! Nice @tooyoungtobeold.

Handy: Jerri, one place has a sign-up website but I doubt they will e-mail me. So far my area has 3 places that got SOME vaccine but not much. The big push here are the Native American Reservations because they have a higher than normal infection rate.

Handy: Jerri, Yes, prisoners come before 1b old folks. They live in confined areas where transmission rates are high.
