Mostly Dry Valleys

Today sucked. The hot water drill was almost a joke. The guy shipped it with used pipes and hoses, and some sort of soap in it somewhere. Thankfully we shot it into a bucket on the first run, or the clean up would have been horrendous. The burner wouldn't work, so it was a cold water drill, which simply isn't effective. The weather was terrible today. Grey and windy, cold again. The meltwater at the lake edge is thoroughly refrozen.

And, to top it off, it's snowing in the driest place on Earth. Chances are we won't get our flight tomorrow due to weather, and they don't fly on Sundays, so we won't have our cables and cutters until Monday, which means our Monday move becomes a Tuesday move, our Tuesday a Wednesday, and our Wednesday a Thursday. Hopefully we're not delayed too much more...

That's too bad. It makes no sense to send you used/ineffective equipment in a place where you can't get a ready replacement. But on the bright side, it sounds like you've unlocked the secrets of time travel.

Hey dude. Sorry to hear your day wasn't as great as it could have been. Just remember you have friends and family backing you up.

Hang in there Jon, you will persevere. You always seem to find a way when you have the will, and your will is stronger than most people I know. I bet you are starting to count the days about now..it will be good to have you back where you can move through your days without struggling so much.

Love you, miss you, please take care.

Yup. Thanks for the comments, all. How's life, david? I hope DeKalb's doing you well. I'm sure I'll be around there sometime over break.
