Dear Joseph and Lucia,
What would normally have been a 3.5 hour drive ended up taking 7 hours last night. My weekly drive up from Richardson was impeded by an early snow storm. The weather casters all predicted light blowing snow and the roads should be fine. That wasn’t the case. I ended up stuck in an icy downpour on the highway with nowhere to go but forward. I was exhausted by the time I got to my room.
Today is turning out to be a very long Monday. The plant was closed due to all the school closings. But, the lab is always open. I made it in but I’m not worth shooting today. So, it’s 3 o’clock and I’m getting ready to leave for the day. I can’t run any experiments since everything is shut down. And I don’t have the mental acuteness to implement any of the new ideas I had over the weekend. Very frustrating.
Sorry for the gripy letter today. Sometimes I just need to vent.
Always waiting for you.
