Tim and I got snowed off about a mile from the summit in 2010. We went back in 2011. Tim, injured from the day before, turned back less than halfway there, and storm clouds were all around. I considered not going on alone but realized I would not want to come back for a third try. Despite some brief showers, the weather mostly cooperated, including a thunderstorm one drainage away staying away.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
