I caught an early Xmas at my mother's house in Ohio this year. I usually fly "home" on Christmas day, but the flights were exhorbinantly priced this year(probably due to the holiday falling on a Saturday). Either way, it was nice getting back - even if today is only 5F.
Brian and I got some time to reconstruct his rig with a new 200GB hard drive and sample the newest coffeehouses. His Cup O' Joe isn't half bad.
The unfortunate thing about these trips is the flight:stay ratio - I fly about 16 hours for a 48 hour visit.
