    Snow.  Blowing snow.  More snow.  Snow plows can't keep up.  Roads are getting too narrow to run on and share with cars.  Snow is too deep to run in the woods.  Snow shoes or skis are required.  Mid-winter is really great.  How's everyone doing today?

    Run!  Just Run!

      Wow, it's 61 degrees outside, according to weather.com.  I think I may go take a walk.  After all, I'm downloading a database, which is estimated to finish in an hour ...

      When it's all said and done, no one remembers how far we have run.  The only thing that matters is how we have loved.

        Just for fun:

         

        Cadillac, MI (where I live):  currently -1F, feels like -16F

        Prudhoe Bay, Alaska:  currently 1F, feels like -15F

        McMurdo Station, Antarctica: currently 30F, feels like 30F

        Run!  Just Run!

          Brrrr!!!  I actually went for a walk WITHOUT my jacket ... though the high tomorrow is 22.

            And so the waiting game is happening . . . AGAIN. 2nd interview with a local company today. But this time the wait is not on whether I will be hired but rather I am now waiting on the official offer letter. With that I information I contacted the recruiter for the Chicago based company to get an answer from them (I was told the other day I have a 50/50 chance with them) and hopefully that will spur them along the way to make a decision in my favor. The Chicago company would be a $13K higher salary.

             

            Either way we will be opening the 1967 bottle of Crown Royal soon to celebrate.

              Yay, Doug!  May you get the Chicago one so you don't have to move!

               

              I won my trial (the one I worked weekends to prepare and argue).  And it was 82F at 6pm today, so my marathon was transferred to the gates of hell this weekend.

                Well the offer that will be coming soon is for a position 58 miles from home and the Chicagoland position is 63 miles from home.  I was doing a 40 - 45 minute commute before but only about 30 - 35 miles.  Both positions are commutable from home but the Chicagoland position pays $13,000 more per year starting salary.

                  Awesome news, Venom!!!  Yeah, $13k more starting salary would probably lean me that direction.  Believe me, a 60-mile commute is a long freakin' way some days ...

                      It was 70 yesterday. Today, um no. Just no. I live in the South for a reason. I'm not amused.

                        Double Oops, sorry guys didn't mean to jump in your thread. Was typing and watching TV

                        and thought this was the daily thread.

                          Hi, guys.  Tired after my run.  While the rest of the country is freezing, we are hot and humid.
