Although there is a blizzard warning up for the Sierra Nevada, and I-80 was actually closed at the California state line around the time we were heading for dinner, we only had to deal with rain on the drive to and from Sparks. Still, I did not like the feel of the road, and slowed down and did not fret about everyone else who wanted to drive at 70 MPH on rain-slickened roads.
Leaving the Nugget in Sparks, we drove to the Nugget in Fernley, where Lisa played a little bit on her favorite slot machines. Although she lost on one, she more than made it up on the second one, and quit while she was $11 ahead instead of $10 behind, so that's not so bad.
We really couldn't do a whole lot more than that because tomorrow is a work day for me, but I'm glad we got to do a little bit of something nice for Lisa's birthday.
I did not forget Lisa's birthday present. At Christopher Carson's suggestion, I got Lisa a copy of 100 Suns, which she told me was one of the best presents she's had in years.
