Wow! Had a similar experience on the 16th when I flew out of Eug to get back here. The flight crew in Eug was 20 minutes late getting to the airport 'cause of the bad weather. I noticed, though, that none of the passengers were late. I missed my connection in Salt Lake City to Atlanta, so they routed me to Chicago,Atlanta into Jacksonville. I was originally supposed to land in Jax at 6:30PM. Got to Chicago, the weather was very blizzardly and getting worse. Got to ATL late, but the connecting flight was also late. It got much later. Finally took off from Atl and got to Jax at 1:30am. Got home at 3:30. Only 6 hours later then I would have. Pat was really happy! Worse flight experience I've ever had. You already know about on my way out there. I hate flying anyway. The only difference between that and riding a greyhound bus is the plane is (most of the time) faster.

Glad your flight home was better than your flight here. The potatos you made were awesome!! I was pretty bummed that I didn't get to hug your neck "bye"...but it was so nice to spend a little time with you!

What? You stayed?

I really enjoyed reading this post, thank you. It would be great, if you're interested, to share this at http://www.iloho.com. It's an online tool for travelers where you can post the best travel news and articles on the web and then vote for your favorites.

I was especially glad not to be flying anywhere - rather, trying to fly anywhere - during that especially delightful example of Man-Made Global Warming.

I did, however, have to get to work, which was interesting in itself. Studded tires are your friend. In my case, "getting to work" involves driving down 700 feet in elevation along winding 2-lane roads with no shoulders and deep ditches, driving briefly along the Valley floor, then climbing back up to the 650 - foot elevation. By 6 a.m.

Think About It ...

    "Other evils there are that may come... Yet it is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succor of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till. What weather they shall have is not ours to rule"
    "A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight; nothing he cares about more than his own personal safety is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by exertions of better men than himself."
