Got here a half hour ago. Roads are fine. Once you get around an idiot, the roads get kinda scary though.

been here since 7. ;(

Willard: When I was home after my first tour, it was worse. I'd wake up and there'd be nothing. I hardly said a word to my wife, until I said "yes" to a divorce. When I was here, I wanted to be there; when I was there, all I could think of was getting back into the jungle.

5:30 AM school automated call alerting snow day... yeah I'm sticking around the homestead and working from home. A neighborhood of jr-highers off and running amuck that will probably end up at my house is a scary thought. (Insert evil laugh here.... spoiled their plans!)LOL

The right way is not always the popular and easy way. Standing for right when it is unpopular is a true test of moral character

I shouldn't of but I did.

Once I got in, my boss called and she that she was surprised that I made it in. She was calling to let me know that she wasn't going to make it and that most of the people in the area didn't bother and just called in.

Rolled in 15 minutes late. Love the SHAWD in my RDX. I was blowing past the light traffic anywhere I could. I will say it has a little too much black box intervention. It really tried to keep me from spinning and sliding a little too much.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
