  1. Had the first dose of Pfizer yesterday. No effects besides a little bit of a sore arm. We’ll see how the second dose is in a few weeks.

  2. Haven't posted in this thread in a while--congrats to everyone getting their vaccines. Received my first shot 12/24/20 (little injection site soreness, that's it), and my second 1/22/21 (felt fluish the night of, slept it off and felt fine in morning). A disturbing thing that we have seen is three patients in the ICU in the last few weeks contracted COVID post-full vaccination with Moderna or Pfizer. Two passed. One was on immunosuppressant therapy, which likely significantly limited the effectiveness of the vaccine, but notable regardless. We are well into another surge here. My ICU

  3. Good night's sleep and I'm good to go. Thanks to all the good people that made the vaccine possible. I'm in awe of the science involved that lead to this result. Not to mention that we flew a drone on Mars

  4. Also thought I'd share that both my Mom and Dad have gotten both doses of Moderna now, and neither of them had issues and they both have some type of pre-existing condition. All both of them had was sore arm in the injection area. My bro got his first Moderna as well and he had no issues other than the same sore arm in location of injection. My bro and I go for our second Moderna's on Thu 5/6 and Fri 5/7 back to back days at WCU South Campus. At least the weather should start warming up soon long term based on what I'm seeing. This might be best for another thread on here this part, but seems

  5. My wife was in a room with a physical therapist for 30 minutes who three days later called her to say she has Covid. She never got it (neither did our son or I who didn't exactly run and hide from her for the next two weeks). So my real life experience (beside knowing most of my supermarket co-workers have not had it symptomatically) is yes masks at the very least help. I am assuming you are in a SNJ hospital. I just saw that total covid hospitalizations in NJ dipped below 2,000 for the first time in a month. The north section led the drop today. I can't even imagine how long someone can sta

  6. Unscientific yet scientific discussion here--I'm functionally asplenic, which means my spleen doesn't work as intended. This was my long lasting gift for beating Hodgkins' Lymphoma in my 20s. This results in my immune system not being quite as robust as everyone else's--not an ideal condition for an ICU practitioner. As a result of my functional asplenia, I tend to get "sick" 2-3 times per year. Head cold, URI, the norm--an acute viral illness. I'm like clockwork, 2-3 times per year every year. My point is that I haven't had an acute viral illness since February 2020 (prior to COVID)

  7. 31.8 IMBY. Was at Lowes this morning, looked like most of their plants were unharmed since it didn't get much below 32.

  8. I was looking and listening for hail yesterday but did notice any. Always possible I missed it. πŸ˜†πŸ˜† It was an impressive little thunderstorm.

  15. I'd go with the swiss cheese model. It is more accurate than the GFS and also tastier. Every bit helps. It didn't hurt either there was not much of a flu season in the southern hemisphere last summer.

  16. I have 3 overall, but the one I have on my weather station is on my roof, so I don't totally count that station for temps. I usually go with a combination of my 2 digital ones.

  17. I ate some lettuce the other night that made it thru our winter. I think I am still normal, so they should be ok. Not sure about the hail part though.

  21. You could also argue that the lockdown rules had more of an affect on non-covid viral infection rates than masks. Do we really want to go there?

  22. Went low today (same can’t be said for my playing partners lol). 37/40 split . Wind really picked up on the back 9 πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ. Hitting my irons soo flush right now, it’s been an amazing feeling. (And keeping my tee shots in play!) played at Springfield CC. Not a bad day today.
