John Leyba, The Denver Post



From an Early Reader:

“I was in Denver for your big Spring snow (on March 23, 2010). I actually was stranded overnight. While waiting in the long line at United to rebook for a Wednesday morning flight, I was thinking about the story in JUMP! and also how lucky I had been to find a hotel room just as someone cancelled.

About that time, an elderly woman from Nebraska told me she can’t get out until Thursday and that she was stuck in the airport until then. Pebbles in the pond, Bob. Long story short, I had a roommate that night. I don’t know if I would’ve thought of it without reading your work.” LM, Texas

Goosebumps.
