Let me be a warning to others: If you wake up about a half hour before your alarm is scheduled to go off, it's best to get up then rather than to wait for your alarm. I woke up a half hour before my alarm, decided to wait the half hour out, and woke up more than an hour later than my alarm. Not good, since it was 15 minutes later than when I should have left. Ugh! Add to that the wonderful ability for Michigan drivers to completely lose the ability to drive when the slightest precipitation is falling. Ugh!
