Two other things have eaten my time of late. First, I had to endure problems arising out of an unusually bad snowstorm. You must be thinking that I ought to be used to that. You're right. But the snowstorm isn't one of the ones we've had in North Dakota. I was in Little Rock, Arkansas on Christmas. They had a snowstorm. They really aren't "used to that." They lost power all over the place. I couldn't even get to our office until Friday.
Second, I managed to get a particularly nasty virus. It was one that wasn't covered by the flu shots they were giving either in North Dakota or in Arkansas. (I got a shot in each place; probably unnecessary but not enough). That killed another week.
I'm hoping things will slow down a bit so that I can start posting regularly again.
