With Dutch Harbor in the rear view window, I am camped out in Louisville, KY. looking for employment and a new chapter.

With the time change (which I missed completely and was unprepared) we are having daylight until 9:45 PM. It now gets light here around 9 AM.
We got another 6 inches of snow last night. The massive melt is about equal to the reload. The road up Haystack was impassable to only those with 4 wheel drive and a sense of traction.
I heard early today one of my guys could not get up it to pick up GNU. I took a part of the day off, kinda. Eventually I had to go in to the warehouse to take care of business.
When I returned to the base of the hill, there was a truck in trouble. He was backing down, then stopped. He turned on his emergency blinkers, a complete retreat from going up. The guy in front of me went by and up. I went by soon after, but soon was losing grasp of the ice. Wet ice covered by fresh snow. Now I was the IDIOT backing down. A truck behind me was waiting patiently for me to end my sojourne. I backed down and waved him by. Then I was right behind him, now AWARE. Slow and steady was the task, but with the help of 4 wheel drive. I was driving the van, as the Tahoe was being repaired. I slid a bit, but got back to the nadir.
ROTTY gets the American Airlines $100 certificate. God bless the bankrupt. Customer Service has a certain degree of priority. Flying bankrupt into the horizon...
Basketball is kicking in. IONA was destroying BYU. In the second half, BYU came back from 25 points down to easily win. A new record for the NCAA.
I know what you are thinking... EVERYONE LOVES BASKETBALL, until football kicks in.
