Border Day

It’s a cooooold morning in Minot.

It’s amazing how much longer the days are up here. I’d noticed a gradual increase to daylight hours in the past weeks, but it was really remarkable yesterday. It was still bright out at 10:00 p.m. and there was almost full sun at 6:00 a.m.

Last night, I found myself effectively boxed in, so I spent the night where I was and went to bed early so I could get up early and get myself into a better departure location and then I went back to bed. There really won’t be any stopping opportunities between here and the border, so there was no sense pulling out. I’m finishing off my coffee and will make a couple of calls, including one to Verizon to cancel my data package.

There was some major news out of Alberta this morning, what with the announcement that Donna and Ken are officially turning in their keys. 🙁
