sad day.  eventually, I had to come home from the pac nw.  I was not very happy.  I did have a delay in minneapolis, but I eventually made it home around midnight.  aaaaaaand, it was about 20 degrees hotter at midnight in kc than it ever was anywhere else on my trip.  LAME.

it was a very, very, very good trip.  the pac nw will see me again.
