Coffee Pot broke in AM - Had to get two different replacements before I got one that worked.Memory Card failed and I lost a bunch of photos. Good breakfast at Island Joe's. Good Dinner at DragonFish - not as good as Typhoon, but good.

They wouldn't let us into the Rose Garden after the Novice Men skated so that we could see the Dance practice. They were clearing the areana before the Jr. ladies. It was freezing and I was damn cranky - but that has been the only big problem so far. I heard some competitors complaining that the hospitality in the official hotel runs out of food really early - like they haven't ordered enough for how many people there are.

Frank's plane was delayed for hours - he still hadn't made it out of Palm Springs by 8:30 or so last night. He will be very rushed to get credentialled and over to the 8:50 practice tomorrow AM. Evan's skates didn't come in with him - they are scheduled to arrive tomorrow AM - about an hour before he has a practice.- Ken is missing a piece of luggage as well. And none of us have a car this year - so I am not sure how Evan's skates and Evan will wind up in the same place at the same time tomorrow AM and if Ken will have clothes or Frank will make it at all. But I will be over there to root for whoever manages to show up :)). I assume the other HealthSouth boys are all in safely. Danielle arrives this AM.(probably on the same plane as Evan's skates).
