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.
