TSA screening at Huntsville: "Remove all electronics larger than a cell phone from your carryon". And shoes and jackets, too, unless you are lucky enough to the TSA Pre-check on your boarding pass--I didn't this trip. In Dallas, on the return flights, two days later: "Do not remove any electronics from your carryon". Different equipment, different rules.
All four of my flights were full or very close to full. And all were on time, departures and arrivals. The employees were professional and the passengers all behaved themselves, well, mostly.
Many food vendors in the airports are closed, even in Atlanta and Dallas. Labor shortages are probably the reason since passenger counts have greatly increased. Long lines for those who wanted Chick-fil-A or 5 Guys--I come prepared so no problem for me.
Once in Dallas I used LYFT to get to the hotel--I am still a little skittish about getting in a stranger's car. They have a very helpful safety feature I use--I text my ride to my husband who can watch the ride in real time--and he knows the vehicle and driver who picked me up. It was only 15 minutes to the hotel. After unpacking my clothes, I used LYFT again to go to the Studio, about 2 miles away, to deliver my quilts. They decorate the set the night before for the next day's taping, since we hope to start taping about 9 am.
This yellow and white quilt was made by Alex Anderson. We have a garden party theme and it filled that space nicely:
