Arrived in Miami from South America at dawn's light this morning. Got to spend some time in Florida today: visiting my folks, soaking up the sun in the 80+ degrees weather, napping, and generally recharging the batteries. I am now marooned in West Palm Beach Airport--thankfully hooked up with free Wi-Fi!--waiting for a 10:00 (!) flight to Kennedy Airport . . . which should get me home somewhere around 3:00 a.m., if I am lucky! And the weather in the Northeast is supposed to be cold, snowy, and miserable, so it won't be a fun drive home.
