A short post today, due to travel yesterday and a new project starting this morning. Nobody ever said running a consulting business was easy.
The drive from Denver to Ogden was interesting, as it frequently is this time of year. From Denver to Laramie was easy, with just a bit of snow starting from just south of the Wyoming border. But I-80 from Laramie to just past Rawlins was a mess – wet, slushy and slick, with several jackknifed tractor-trailers on some of the higher areas. Still, this northern route is frequently a safer bet this time of year than the southern route across I-70 to I-15, as that latter route takes you across several high mountain passes that can be treacherous in bad weather. The Wyoming route passes through high, open, rather desolate country that can see some nasty winds and drifts, but the altitude rarely pops up above 8000 feet or so.
Navigating the West in winter can be a tricky business.
But, all is done, Rojito handled the wintry roads with its usual aplomb, and here we are ensconced in an Ogden hotel room until Friday – when the return trip across the same route will hopefully see better conditions.
Stay warm, True Believers! Regular posts will resume tomorrow.
