The difference between Salt Lake and Pittsburgh….When it snows in Utah, the snow is removed before you know it.  Especially at the airport.  Everything is de-iced and ready to keep going no matter how big the snowstorm is.  In Pittsburgh, even with an inch of snow, you would think that it was a blizzard.  This is what the airport looks like after a ‘big’ storm: img_1117

img_1115The whirlwind trip has begun.  I’m in Pittsburgh today.  There is something about a city that I really like.  I think it might just be that I like wandering aimlessly and always have something to look at.  There are so many things to do, places to eat, and things to see.

We are staying in Station Square and I’ve been watching trains from my room.  I really love trains.  I can’t quite figure out that obsession either but if I could use a train as my sole method of transportation for the rest of my life, I would be pretty content.  I went for a walk along the river and the train tracks this morning and despite the frigid, humid, bone-chilling cold, it was quite nice.

Otherwise, not a lot to say today.  Just enjoying a day away from the office and trying to get some work finished this week.  We have our first focus group tonight.  This project so far has run so smoothly, it is unbelievable (knock on wood) and I am just waiting for something to go wrong.  I’m hoping it will continue to go well because this is by far the biggest research project I have ever done and I’ve put a lot of work into it and am pretty close to this one.  Keep your fingers crossed for me.  3 more days and it will all be over….well at least until phase 2 starts….
