  1. Yeah, we had a wicked storm this morning. It woke me up. Be glad he was not on a plane in it.

  2. Mama Earth and the Aircraft industry are both getting tired of metal tubes with wings flying about.
    Meanwhile…..the delays are crazy making!

  3. oohh geee. I hate airplane travelling for that very reason. Hopefully Snowman has something to entertain himself with while waiting for his flight to leave.

  4. Yes, the plane is in the air! Sadly, he will just miss the bus to City By the Sea and have an extra hour to wait. But he should be home mid-afternoon!!

  5. we are still having the storm here…it’s icky out. But earlier it was way bad–my power was out twice already today! awesome. Glad he’s going to get home today, though!

  6. Oh, I do that, too. I even use one of those flight tracker sites to see where they are in the flight!

  7. Yep. manBoy flew out to running camp this morning. The announcements went like this. Boarding for flight xxxx will be delayed. We have maintenance crew aboard the aircraft. (Not comforting).
    15 minutes later: Boarding for flight xxxx has be moved to gate y and will be delayed. We have maintenance aboard this aircraft. Please listen for further anouncements. (Inconvenient and still not comforting.)
    15 minutes later: Attention passengers on flight xxxx, the lavatory on this aircraft is not functioning. Please use airport facilities before you board.(Well at least we hope that’s the only maintenace issue.)
    Finally: Boarding for xxxx at gate y has begun. We will board all groups at once due to the delay.
    Flight left 40 minutes after scheduled departure. Fortunately, it’s only a 1 hour flight.
