Flying south

Despite the rumors that I have super powers and need only a cape to zoom across the sky, I will be taking a plane as I fly to Someplace Warmer Than Snowstorm City for an academic conference. I'll be leaving behind dark, rainy weather and a desk piled with important stuff that needs to be done immediately. I left my students with a project to work on and told them I'd see them on Tuesday. I'll be going to all kinds of sessions, hearing some amazing speakers, and reading a chapter from my manuscript. I'll be meeting up with colleagues and friends, including Artist Friend and Philadelphia Guy, and some bloggers as well. Hopefully I'll return next week feeling well-rested and inspired and ready to tackle the rest of the semester.

Doesn't look like someplace warmer treated you to much better weather than you would have gotten at home. I hear that November is usually lovely in that neck of the woods.
