Aspen's Thorns

More

Third day into my new perch on Atlantic Voices and I've been kept from blogging much today while fighting to get from Aspen to Denver to catch a Lufthansa flight to Berlin.

We had a storm, a pretty one with lightning, dark clouds, and four of five minutes of wind, race past us in Aspen -- freezing everything.  And then Denver shut down -- and now we may be going again.

So, despite this seeming like a summer paradise, there is at least one downside to Aspen living: getting out.  Who knew?

More soon.
