Home again, home again... jiggidy jog.

Conference is done and in the books, with most folks headed for home. I left my hotel room to TOTWTYTR and our friend from Iowa, since their flights aren't until tomorrow and I no longer needed the room. Traffic on the IH-35 corridor was as bad as I've ever seen it. Much of the normally under three hour trip was clocked at under 5 MPH, with my average for the 70 miles between Austin and Temple under 25. At Temple I'd had enough, so I bailed out and took the back roads. Thanks to a washed out bridge I added somewhere near 40 miles to the trip, but still made it home quicker than I think I could have had I stuck with the Interstate. The trip took right at five hours.

But now I'm home and get to sleep in my own bed. Blogging should return to normal and in a day or two I'll try to post a few pictures of the conference.
