Weekend Warriors

Lisa left me a message when she got home to Fernley around midnight last night. Aside from needing to stop and take a nap in the back seat for a while around Tracy, she had no difficulty getting home. The storm is moving more slowly than originally predicted, and the rain didn't hit the Bay Area until mid-day today. However, if we had tried to make the trip today, Lisa would have needed chains to get back home, so it's a good thing we did things a day early.

We were thinking far enough ahead to pack the minivan's chains (which normally live in the garage in the summertime) in the Rolling Stone when we came down the hill. However, we forgot to put them in the minivan before Lisa headed home, so they'll stay with me. Oh, well, we were half right. And if snow were to get bad, Lisa could always drive the Big Orange Van, which is incredibly sure-footed.

With an extra day on my hands here in the Bay Area, I slept in for a little while, then dealt with some small optional errands I've been meaning to do for a while, then went into the office to get some work done and I hope get ahead of the game in anticipation of being offline much of Friday.
