I'm on my way, with Isaac, to Las Vegas for a four-day weekend. We'll be staying in the Luxor pyramid. I got a package deal through Travelocity. We'll see just how much more unpleasant flying has gotten; it seems to go nowhere but downhill.
We're not going to gamble or explore the strip -- we're going to visit my brother and his family, including a niece and nephew I haven't seen in seven years.
It's going to be a bit of a shock to the system -- our host is planning some outdoor activities. Temperatures are supposed to be in the high 80s.
It was 40 degrees this morning in Ann Arbor. I guess it's better than the time we were having a record cold snap in Ann Arbor and it hit 25 below zero. I called my father in California where it was 75. A 100 degree temperature difference!
