Seeing the Storm Out in Style.

Yesterday's winter storm left many people stranded far from home. Local news outlets interviewed travelers over-nighting at the airport in Minneapolis. They appeared on camera, putting a brave face on their discomfort as they attempted to settle in for a night sleeping on the floor.

My night was far less uncomfortable. I got stuck in the parking lot at work when I tried to leave for home. Abandoning my car, I hiked a half-mile or so to the Westin Hotel in Edina where my wife had made a reservation for me. I had a lovely dinner at McCormick and Schmick's and then ascended to my very comfortable chamber to pass the evening before the large screened TV where I enjoyed the movie The Girl Who Played With Fire.  Please, don't worry about me, I'm fine.

Good to hear from you! Was wondering... Have you finally made it home?

Got home hours ago. Spent a couple of hours snow-blowing the driveway, walk-ways, and sidewalks. Snuggled down inside now.

I guess there are advantages to working Saturday in Edina.
