On the road again

Well, I made it through a full week of the new millennium without getting on an airplane, but my streak ended today, and this very brief entry comes to you from the Newark Airport Hilton in Elizabeth, New Jersey. I was lucky and got here early enough to be able to use the exercise room before they closed it at 10 (to be fair, it’s a staffed fitness center and pool, so it would cost them money to keep it open longer), so I’m reasonably happy (I seem to be getting hooked on endorphins again, and I am not looking forward to the next few days, where I won’t have access to any exercise equipment — and I don’t have clothing suitable for running in the cold weather here).

I’ll be in the Poconos the rest of the week; it’ll be a winter wonderland, I’m sure. But I didn’t bring my camera, so you’ll have to take my word for it — as it is, I’ve already seen plenty of snow here, but at least it was neatly piled up instead of coming out of the sky.
