Today is Presidents Day. It also happens to be my first Snow Day of 2015. We received about 4-6″ of snow overnight and was welcome to see.

February is over 1/2 way gone and I for one am glad. I got a break from the Arctic Tundra and went to Tucson for some training last week. The high there was nearly 80F and not one cloud. It was really, really nice. The down side is that we were essentially stuck indoors the … More February is Dragging on…..

Once again I suck at this. Trying to do this once a week really does not work for me… I lack discipline to get it done. Fair amount of things happening lately and a lot of work travel the last two weeks has kept me on my toes. I could have been on a very … More July Moving Fast
