This past weekend I made a trip back home because I had this weird two week period where I’m just waiting for my project to start. Also I had leftover vouchers to spend from my last trip. (Woo being hungover worked out!). I was due to leave Thursday morning, yet my initial flight got cancelled due to an oncoming winter storm which was supposed to bring down 3-6 inches in the morning alone. So I reschedule and decide to just sleep on it. Morning hits and…..trace amount of snow on the ground. I most likely would’ve been able to fly out of DCA. Instead I had to wait till the evening, right after a huge dump-age of snow happened through out the day. Didn’t help that right as I was leaving the door, there was breaking news out of LaGuardia Airport that a plane almost ran off the runway after landing. <_<. Anyways, I get on the plane at about 4:15PM ish EST and took off 45 mins later without a hitch (had to wait for deicing of plane and coat of antifreeze). I guess I can chalk “take off during snowy conditions” off my list.
Being back home was great, but I still am not used to being home for only a set number of days. Being a visitor in your home town….huh. Anywho, the flight back was great. I actually spent money to upgrade my seat and got seated on the plane first! Ok ok it was only on Southwest Airlines….but still, riding in the first few rows is still pretty cool (especially for a 4 ish hour flight). Can’t wait to fly actual first class at some point….
