Monday, February 20: I finally saw my brother for the first time since before the pandemic started. I was so happy.
Tuesday, February 21: After all the travel and socializing, I was still negative for COVID so felt okay about getting on a plane for home.
Wednesday, February 22: Thanks to weather (and maybe lack of staff, though that was only hinted at), I wasn’t able to take my original flights home. A helpful agent was able to re-route me on better flights than the app had offered me, though it did involved going through Seattle with a very tight connection that I was afraid I’d miss. As it turned out, the flight out of Seattle was delayed, so I and my suitcase had plenty of time.
Thursday, February 23: Home again. The snow was higher than when I left. The cold was more intense, too, so I did not go ski in all that snow.
Friday, February 24: Beautiful views, but still bitterly cold. A good day to stay in and just admire the mountains through the windows.
Saturday, February 25: The mountain brought in something called the Samuel Adams Air & Apres show, which involved skiers and snowboarders doing aerial tricks, a trampoline artist, projections on the snow, and some fireworks.
Sunday, February 26: Wind scuplted drift outside my kitchen window.
