Three-Day Stay

The airport will be busy. I could spend the whole morning on the back side of the office, watching the planes take off and land. Or I could look right behind my building at the train tracks. They're mostly for freight lines but carry the odd passenger car or two. The rails will be humming today, too.

And don't even get me started on the roads. The big story on the all-news radio this week was that the worst day to drive out of the second worst traffic city in the United States before a long weekend isn't Friday but Thursday. I was driving west on a major highway last evening — and I would agree.

So as tempting as it might be to flee, I'm looking forward to staying in my own backyard — which I'm overlooking right now, sipping tea and listening to the crows call.
