Today was filled with meetings from the other workshop leaders, checking with the hotel on the room arrangements, and looking at other people's talks to be sure we're not duplicating content. We had planned to have a gathering of those of the workshop attendees who had arrived by dinnertime and then assemble a group to go to eat, but about 6 PM the driving snow started (Denver had high winds all day, and then the gray clouds of the front got here in mid-afternoon) and suddenly an excursion for dinner seemed much less attractive. One group did venture across Union to José O'Shea's (tolerable Mexican food), but I ended up with a group of 7 people in the hotel bar/grill. And then I retreated to my room to give my first talk one more run-through--it's the first full talk tomorrow morning. I'm moderately prepared...it should do, though it's not real polished.
The snow is supposed to be brief, though it will be cold tomorrow. It's just a rather sudden transition to Winter from Atlanta yesterday, where we were still a little on the 'unseasonably warm' side.
