The kids had off from school this week, so we snuck off for a few days of skiing in VT. How was the skiing? Any ski day that doesn’t end with me in the hospital is a good ski day.
Yesterday was 60 degrees at the mountain; spring-like skiing conditions in February, something I had never experienced before, but apparently the warmth brings out a different kind of crowd to the slopes, like the college girl who rushed passed me on the downhill wearing just a swimsuit.
Anyway, the net result is that I’m on limited time this morning, so I’ll just highlight this week’s supply chain and logistics news without commentary and catch up next week.
Have a happy weekend!
