Frozen In Time

And space…

Today, we are unable to leave our house as there is much snow and ice outside. In fact, there was snow first and then freezing rain all night so there’s about 6 inches of ice on our back porch and a sheet of ice on our street. We’re not able to leave! Not that I mind, of course – especially since it’s Valentine’s Day and I get to spend it with my wife! In fact, I can’t think of anywhere I’d rather be than iced in with my loving, beautiful, adorable wife.

The only unfortunate thing is that I am still expected to do some work from home… Well, I’ll do what I have to and take some breaks. Lots of breaks!

Back At “Work”

Laura has gone home now, and I’m stuck up here in dreary Seattle for work without her. I suppose I’ll survive.

The sessions so far have been mixed… It’s alway good to listen to Steve Balmer as he gets so excited about things and the last session I learned a few good things about the next versino of Windows server. But… there was all this business “junk” in the middle that I don’t care about. It is much less than last year, though, and that is good.

So, now I’m going to go learn more about Exchange Server 2007…

This Week In Seattle

This week, starting today, Laura and I are hanging out in Seattle with our friends Jeff & Amy. Now, begining Monday Jeff & I have a Microsoft technical training conference to attend, but we brought the wives to spend the weekend with. The girls go home on Monday morning… that’s when the fun ends… not really, but it will seem like it.

So, as we look out over the cloudy city today, we are trying to decide what to do and where to go. Tough choice, as everything is pretty cool here. I fully intend to take a lot of pictures, but who knows what circumstances will intervene.
