Still in Calgary. Didn’t bother trying to reset my internal clock so I’m writing this at 4:15 in the morning local time. I’ll be back home tonight by midnight so this is going to be a long day.

Got everything done that I’d planned on so today is a day for catching up on emails, working on some problems and then we’ll take a departing employee out for a farewell lunch.

The weather here has been great for late January. Yesterday it got up to 10C and was sunny. Looking out at the mountains, you can see a line of clouds that looks permanent and the locals tell me this is a tell-tale sign of a Chinook wind which accounts for the warm temperatures.

Last night we went out for a feed of Alberta beef. Mad Cow be dammed, that’s fine eating!
