The night in the hotel is a mixed blessing. I didn’t have to drive the trek back and forth on successive days. The hotel was kind of a pit. I slept poorly. When I did sleep, I dreamt, and those dreams were not all good.Continue reading “In the office, and not”
First note: I didn’t do the whole drive in one day. There’s a hotel less than a mile from the office – it’s been my backup plan if I ever get stranded up here in weather.Continue reading “To the office”
