You can't get there from here

That has been the story of the past two days of travel. I have reserved hotels, then I have driven close to the hotels, yet I can't cut the knot of all the interchanges to actually get into the parking lot of the hotel. In Omaha yesterday, I drove five miles after I had the hotel just off my right. I just couldn't get to the thing.

Tonight, Denver. It was 39 degrees when I pulled into down, a vast improvement over ten below.
