Last year, we drove up to Boyne Mountain in Michigan, where the kids learned an expensive but valuable lesson when their things were stolen while they were in the hot tub.
Police were involved and everything.
This year, it’s just too damn cold. (An 8-degree high in Chicago today!)
Plus our friends ditched us for the beach!
But I can’t say I blame them.
Now …if you are heading to slopes (or the beach) and need a good read, I have something excellent for you!
This week, Option Pit Head Income Trader Bill Griffo released his new ebook Trading the Fed, which can help you build generational wealth in a short period of time (so your heirs can go shopping!).
Seriously, there are so many great insights in Trading in the Fed that you can start putting into action today. And there should be — Bill has 40 years of trading experience.
I mean, that’s much, much longer than I have even been alive … 😉
Anyway, back to our travel restrictions, my husband cannot leave Illinois without quarantining for 10-14 days afterward due to work policy.
They also ask him every morning if he left the state after departing work night before, so there’s that.
And Chicago has a map of the states we cannot go to without hassle — which includes almost every state:
Every orange state has >15 positive cases per 100,000 people which comes out to .015%.
I can’t help but think: Are those borders containing/separating the Covid-19 virus?
I know that is dumb, but … just sayin’. (Actually, can we fly to Hawaii and not quarantine? Hmmm … need to look into that.)
The good news is, that since Jan. 8 the number of Covid cases reported to the CDC has been falling:
I know I am whining and I realize there are a lot of people way more negatively affected by this virus … but I am cold and I want to go to the beach.
We do get to go out for margaritas tonight (good thing Option Pit DC Insider Frank Gregor left some for us!) … and actually sit inside the restaurant, not in a tent!
Yesterday, Chicago raised the restaurants’ indoor dining from 25 to 50 people per room, but no more than 25% capacity.
All bars must serve food and stop serving alcohol by 11 p.m. because … Covid comes out more after 11?
Enjoy your weekend wherever you are! And be sure to download Griff’s ebook!
Thanks for Reading … See You Next Tuesday!
