As you can see, I have finally gotten around to posting all of the photos I took over winter break. The vast majority of them were actually taken on my way home - an ice storm rendered a good chunk of western Nebraska in stunning condition, as ice clung to the trees despite the sunshine and clear blue skies. The sunset in Colorado was also beautiful, as most of the state had just been hit with a good deal of snow. There are also some miscellaneous pictures of my dog and my family, and finally some photos from my visit to a winery in Canon City, not far from Colorado Springs.

I also started classes again today - fun stuff. Only one semester to go! However, I do have quite a bit to look forward to. In June, I will be visiting Australia and New Zealand, for a period of three whole weeks. Then, on the 16th of July, I will be starting work for IBM. Orientation will be held in Washington D.C. Needless to say, I am quite excited for graduation in May.

I went to the Lincoln air show this past Sunday. It was awesome! I hadn't been to an air show in quite some time, and this one was free, so I figured I might as well. Apparently, two hundred thousand other people thought they'd go as well. Despite the numbers, it didn't seem that crowded; there was lots of space. I didn't get a seat anywhere near the fence, but fortunately that only matters for the rocket truck event, which I barely caught anyway. So, I made camp towards the back where there weren't many people. After all, if the entertainment is overhead, it doesn't really matter where you sit.

I got to the air show just as the F-117 was ending its flight, so I didn't get any pictures of that. But I did get pictures of just about everything else! The Blue Angels had by far more photos than anything else. What can I say - they are awesome.

Not so awesome, however, is the process of leaving the air show. It took me no less than two hours to get out of the parking lot, and for the first hour and fifteen minutes I didn't move at all. It was pretty excruciating. But, I did eventually escape the mad house, and in retrospect, it was worth it.

My apartment building lost power today. For around an hour, I didn't know what to do with myself. Pretty much everything I do depends on electricity. Instead of firing up the laptop, though, I actually found myself thinking "I should save the battery in case I need it later and the power is still out." So, I took a nap instead.
