Stuck in D.C.

Thanks to a late afternoon winter storm yesterday, I am spending the weekend in Chantilly, VA.  I was due to go home yesterday (and really looking forward to it too!) but the storm cancelled most of the flights out of Dulles and I was told they couldn’t get me back to Nashville until Sunday.  Since I had to be back up here Monday, it didn’t make sense to do that, so I’m just not going home this weekend.

The bad part about the situation (which my lovely wife is in the process of fixing as I write this) is that my shiny new Macbook Pro was delivered to my house on Thursday.  Sooo…I’ll have to wait a couple more days before I can get my hands on it.  She is shipping it up here to the office so hopefully I’ll have it sometime Monday and can start setting it up.  I have to give my current Dell laptop to my cousin on Wednesday night next week so it’ll be a horse race to try to get ColdFusion, CFEclipse, MySQL etc all set up and working correctly by then.

Anyway, “every cloud has a silver lining” they say.  This one is that my schedule for this weekend just got cleared so I’m going to try to make some headway on some side work I have pending.
