Good morning, all!

I got home yesterday evening and turned on the rain-delayed Daytona 500. At that point, they were about 60 laps in. Watched the rest of it, including the two "big ones," and they went to Overtime. On the last lap came Newman's frightening crash.

I've always liked Ryan—his completely non-standard engineer-with-a-degree-from-Purdue background appeals to me. He's also bad fast—the Rocket Man nickname hints at his qualifying prowess. The crash looked bad in real-time and even worse in slow motion, with tons of intrusion into the driver's compartment—and then the emergency team was slow to get to what was left of the car (they could learn a lot from Indy Car) as gas poured out of the shattered tank.

Then, we wait. The workers move slowly—never a good sign—and Jeff Gordon is near tears as Fox ends the broadcast. NASCAR blocks off the car with black screens so that fans can't see. Finally, the ambulance heads off to the Halifax Health Medical Center, which is were all severely injured drivers go. At this point, no one knows if Ryan is even alive. I'm worried that I've just watched another driver die on live television, like Dale, Dan, and Justin.

We wait some more. NASCAR fans on Twitter think the worst, and it's hard to disagree because the playbook NASCAR is following is close to the one they followed with Earnhardt in 2001. Finally, at about 10:00 PM, the word comes that a) Ryan's alive and b) his injuries are not life-threatening. A big exhale—but it takes me another two hours to go to sleep.

… and yet still we watch.

Good afternoon, all.

Gris, 37 pictures/114 pages—current estimate is a minimum of 44 pictures/136 pages.

Starting to count down to our 25th wedding anniversary: it's 50 days out from the actual day, 45 days until we fly out.

Good morning, all.

Temperatures dropping throughout the day in the Philadelphia area. In the teens (cold for us) late tonight. Experience tells me I should drip our faucets.

Valentine's Day itself is quiet for us—cards and bitmojis. The big deal is tomorrow, which is the anniversary of our first date.

Good morning, all.

Another cold and rainy day in the Philadelphia area. Typical gory February weather.

Gris, 36 pictures. The finish likely is at least 43 pictures, so it's a way off—another 18 pages or so.

I FIND A THOUSAND DOLLAR FISH HARD TO COMPREHEND. YOU COULD GET A GOOD BIRD DOG FOR THAT :-)

Tom's Koi are very nice.

Great game last night … I had about given up on the Chef's in the 3rd quarter but like all the other playoff games they came from behind and took home the gold … lot of fun …

Ivelis was ready to bail and go to sleep and I reminded it her that this version of the Chiefs is never out of it. She stayed.

I had nothing against the 49ers in this Montana Bowl (I wore a SF-era Montana jersey during the game), but Andy Reid finally winning one was very popular in the Philadelphia area.

This evening, I'm wearing the Mahomes SuperBowl-specific jersey Ivelis got me—I'm too superstitious to wear an active player during the game.

I think Corvette Racing did themselves proud. Both cars finished, with the #3 car on the lead lap.

Doug Fehan and his crew have undoubtedly learned a lot about how to fix issues with these cars, which will benefit the team over the next few seasons.

Checkered flag!

DPi—Cadillac #10 (Kobayashi), Mazda #77, Cadillac #5

LMP2—Oreca #81 (Hanley—9th overall), Oreca #52, Oreca #18

I believe 33 of the original 38 cars were running at the finish. Some of the order and disposition will change after the race.

The #912 Porsche gets past the #25 BMW.

The #4 Corvette is still making laps—a test session at this point. Gavin (the old pro) is in the car.

The #19 Lamborghini has caught on fire. Full course yellow.

"There goes that smoldering Huracan"—has Lamborghini now replaced Ferrari in that unfortunate category?

Definitely three out of the original 38 now done, with two more mighty tenuous. Just about everyone pits.

The #4 car goes behind the wall—unknown at this point what the problem is. They've dropped several laps over the last few hours.

It's some sort of oil leak, which has been getting on the rear tires.

Both cars completing the race is all I'm hoping for—anything else is gravy. Corvette Racing hasn't been so raw with it's cars since 1999.

Currently running 4th and 5th with about a third of the race done. I'll be up for a few more hours tonight and hope that the cars make it to morning.

The Oreca #38 has crashed. Local yellow.

Now full course yellow because they can't get out of the tire barrier. Everybody pits.

The #3 Corvette has a minor shunt with the #98 Aston Martin. They're lucky not to have that much damage, but do lose some time. The #98 Aston then crashes leaving the pits in the same place Jeff Gordon did a few years ago.

Two GTD cars (a Lamborghini and Aston Martin #23) spin after serious contact. The Aston is done.

Full course yellow—our first of the race.

Everybody will pit.

Things are picking up—the #55 Mazda punts the #7 Acura. Passthrough penalty for #55, but the #7 is still in the paddock.
