Aspen's Thorns

By Steve Clemons

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.
