Snow Day

Greetings to you all from Orem, Utah! Yes, I am here the entire week for training on this software package that our company just purchased. There's two of us from the office and one other person is flying in on Tuesday.

Julie dropped me off at LAX and we ate at a Panda Express on the way. My fortune from the fortune cookie said, "You will travel to an exotic place." No kidding, it really did!

The plane arrived at Salt Lake City airport half an hour early and we ended up waiting on the runway for 15-20 minutes because there was another plane at our gate. It was 23 degrees when we got in. Thankfully we didn't rent a compact car but instead got this giant Chevy Tahoe that Al Gore would be proud of.

Later on in the evening it was snowing lightly and I am sure it was colder than the 23 degrees it was at 5:00. At least the heater works!

As for the culinary adventures available here, I thought I'd give you an idea by posting a picture from the local Yellow Pages, of the listings categorized by food type. As you can see, they have a lot of Korean restaurants (check it out - click to enlarge).

Well, at least the training begins at 8:30 and is less than 5 miles from the hotel so I can sleep later than usual. The clock is an hour ahead in this time zone. Then I'm hoping to have an early dinner and come back to the hotel to try and get some writing done (so hopefully there's NO homework!).

I really don't like being out of town like this, but oh, well.. I can't wait until Saturday when Julie will be picking me up at the airport!
