Saturday Jan 6 #


Sometimes it's hard to know for sure whether something that happens should be viewed positively or negatively. Perhaps that statement will be clearer if I cite an example from this morning. Early this morning.

The alarm in our room went off at about 6 am, courtesy of the previous guest, I assume. Now awake, I decided I needed to pee, so off to the bathroom, a very short distance and there was enough light that there seemed no need to turn on any more.

Past the open door, hand on the wall on the right just for the usual security. Took a step or two, move my hand forward, but there was no more wall, just a shower curtain. And since I was leaning just a bit that way, and the shower curtain offered no support, the next thing I knew I was tumbling through the curtain and into the tub, eventually ending up more or less on my back in the bottom of the tub, but crosswise, legs sticking out of the tub.

This is clearly another sign that the end is near, and that statement, by the way, is not (at least at the current time) a positive statement.

I have certainly fallen lots of times over my decades of orienteering, but never did I end up in a bathtub. It is quite distressing.

On the other hand, I suppose it's rather positive that no part of me other than my pride seems to have been injured. I doubt that there are many on AttackPoint who have fallen into a tub as gracefully or as damage-free as I seem to have done. :-)

Not that I wish to do it again. Though something tells me I surely will.

With Gail, up to the north end of the island, back along the ocean for a bit. Low 40s and a little breezy. Felt chilly.

Out to the north end of the island. Nice outing, more touristy than anything. Late afternoon, finished just as the sun was setting, mid-40s, W 5-10. Definitely balmy.

ahr:131 max:157

Back to the bike trail after breakfast, this time on my own. Upper 20s, NW 10 mph, but no problem staying warm as I was working harder (except for a bit in the middle when I was exploring the riverfront across from Augusta). Totally enjoyable except for, well, I was working harder.

10 AM


Today's reloading after the bike ride (first time I've ever had a KK and I must say it was delicious) --

And then headed towards the coast. Saw our first snow since leaving New England, and it was a serious storm, enough to close down the Savannah airport. From the Atlanta newspaper --

It’s been nearly 30 years since Savannah and parts of the Georgia coast saw this much snow, according to Channel 2 Action News.

Bulloch and Effingham counties, which are northwest of Savannah, saw 3.5 inches, Channel 2 meteorologist Brad Nitz said.

Officially, 1.2 inches of snow fell at the Savannah airport.

“That’s sixth place on the all-time snowfall total list and the most since December 23, 1989,” Nitz said. “No. 1 on the list is 3.6 inches on February 8, 1968.”
