After another remarkably uneventful winter crossing of the Pacific Ocean, we arrived safely back in Seattle at around 11:00pm tonight. What turbulence we did encounter stopped before I had time to work up a proper freak-out (it helped that Ian generously offered to lose at Cribbage to distract me. He's a real catch, that one.). I have some observations to write about over the next couple days, but for now I think I'm going to grab a little snack and head to bed. It's only 11:20pm Paradise Time, but that's 1:20 in the middle of the night back over here In The Bleak Midwinter.
