We started out this morning on Round 2, which was called on account of darkness last night. I was there at 6:00 in the cold, wet darkness. Waiting for a ride out to 13, I saw Christa Johnson, who I kept score for on Thursday and who, you will remember, had the high round of the day with 85. She was still only 13 over par, and was there to play her last few holes in the rain before going home for the weekend. I said to her, "It must have been tempting to call in sick this morning".
