Christmas 2008 has come and gone. I am writing this post from the Apple Store in West Towne (sic) Mall, Madison, WI. I stopped here on my way across Wisconsin back to Minneapolis from my parents’ home in Kenosha. The power adapter for my Mac decided to die in a shower of sparks and flame (really!) and there are no new mac power adapters in Kenosha.
I am charging up the battery here so that I if I get stuck at a truck stop in Western Wisconsin, I can at least get something done. Odd weather over here by Chicago, when I got in Christmas eve, there was two feet of snow on the ground and piles taller than me all over. Saturday it was 58F and raining. A true mess. The temperature is dropping as I head North and into the night. I don’t know if I will give in and stay at a hotel or make it all the way home tonight. I hope I don’t end up in a ditch in bear country!
Thanks for all the great comments over the holidays and let’s look forward to an exciting 2009!
P.S. I made it home.
