Clue: Follow the trend for what “Brian” should have been. Where does 4:4 and an old glacier leave you?
I spent all day Tuesday working from home after the disaster filled 5 hour commute Monday night from downtown Seattle to Green Lake. I was exhausted, cranky, and cold. By the time the clue dropped, I was cozy in my pajamas (let’s be honest – when you’re working from home, you’re in pajamas all day) and settling down to a big bowl of pasta. After texts to both Blake Light and Hot Sushi (neither of whom responded – come on Team MI!!!) I figured it was a loss. I anxiously checked other hunters’ comments, hoping to find some clue that would help me claim victory. I even Googled “old glacier Seattle” and “4:4 Brian” but to no avail. When someone mentioned Green Lake, I dropped my pasta bowl and started to put on my shoes. I live at Green Lake! With the training the team has been putting me through, I could have run to the other side of the lake in well under an hour and grabbed the menu. However, I was again beat. Someone figured it out before I even had a chance to tie my scarf and slip on my mittens. On the bright side, when looking at the map, Cowen Park is not as close to my house as I had originally thought, so I didn’t feel as bad. Had the weather been a bit warmer and the roads a little less frozen, I may have been able to do this.
The team will be without a driver for the rest of the week, so it’s up to Hot Sushi and myself. I see wind sprints on icy hills in our near future.
On another note, look how pretty it was in Seattle!
