. . . I'm ready to go . . . This is actually a shot of our destination and not our departure. We are heading to MN for a 'family thing'. You can just make out the MPLS skyline through the haze in the background.
Can you just feel the excitement? The jetway connection is almost complete. The airline hosts and hostesses are preparing for our arrival. The pilot is completing his pre-flight checks. We are a go. At least until we are all boarded and buckled in and the announcement regarding bad weather in our destination airport has us sitting on the tarmack for 6 hours. Have you noticed that we have an awful lot of 'bad weather' these days.
