I wrapped up Friday in San Jose, and departed on a (surprisingly non-delayed) afternoon flight from United to Denver. The storm had beaten us to Denver by a few hours, but the airport was still open and operational. I was in and out of Denver in a short period then home to Iowa just in time for the big storm to find it's way there. We probably received at least a foot of snow, plus a bunch of ice that broke the limbs off many of my trees which had weathered prior storms without so much as a tilt.
Today was another early travel day, to Indianapolis for some saw-sharpening. There was a healthy amount of snow and ice on the roads and aircraft sitting on the tarmac at DSM. American Airlines was kind enough to rebook my flight without informing me, changing my flight routing to IND from ORD to STL. In retrospect, this was fortunate as Chicago had shut down (like Denver the day before) due to the winter storms, and STL had evidently experienced the same problems the day prior as there were many people waiting to get home.
For the next week, I'll be weathering the storm (literally) inside the very pleasant University Place hotel and surrounding Indiana University college environs. Email me if you need me, else I will be bent over hard at work sharpening my saw.
