Where The Heck Are We?

Are we in the good ol’ US of A or in foggy ol’ London?!  I could not believe the fog throughout the day.  Of course, it makes sense since we have so much snow on the ground and the weather was much warmer today.  It was horrible to drive in, though.  People just do not seem to drive defensively anymore.  It’s more like offensive driving, if not downright hostile driving.

I had to go to the pastoral center today for a personnel board meeting this afternoon.  We spent a couple of hours discussing potential assignments of our priests.  Had to fight the fog all the way there and all the way back.  Yeesh.

Was rewarded for putting up with the day, though, by being able to go to dinner with a good friend.  Doesn’t seem to be as much time to do things like that anymore.  The world is moving to quickly.  I don’t know how it got to be Lent already.  I don’t know how it got to be mid-February already.  Heck, I don’t know how it got to be 2018 already!

By the way, speaking of “Where the heck are we?”, you might think the captain is saying that in this picture:

This is the track, thus far, of the Symphony of the Seas, Royal Caribbean’s brand new ship, on her sea trials.  You can see all the different maneuvers that the ship has to make in order to test its systems, stability, guidance capabilities, and a whole host of other issues.  Our transatlantic cruise toward the end of this year will look nothing like that.  And, if it does, we are in big trouble! 🙂
