One of my amusing pastimes this last weekend has been doing informal surveys of traffic patterns and hotels in my local area, along with a few others where I can check prices and availability.
Let me say this quite-clearly: Those who think people will put up with the “distancing” bullcrap and yet come out and spend money on vacations have another think coming; when you send a message that your employees are the Angel of Death people respond to that with the obvious and logical reaction.
Traffic was, shall we say, catastrophically bad in many areas. Witless “reopened” northern Michigan but she may as well not have bothered. Memorial Day Weekend is usually slammed up there to the point that Google Traffic looks like rivers of blood in every single town. This weekend finding orange was hard.
