Sit on a runway for two hours? Sure! that sounds like fun!
I got to do that twice yesterday as I tried to make my way across the country. I left my house at 8am Pacific. As we all settled into our seats we were told that weather was causing delays in Chicago. We would have a slight delay.
As we rolled out to the runway we suddenly stop.. and sit for an hour.
I wasn't too worried I had a two hour layover in Chicago, I was fine.
We then headed back to the terminal to wait another hour.
I call my trusty travel department (haha) who protect me on the next flight out of Chicago.
No problem, we finally leave and I'm on my way.
When I get to Chicago it is snowing and snowing hard.
I look at the departure screen and see that my original flight was delayed for two hours so I didn't miss my connection after all!
I had an hour wait and then boarded the plane to my destination.
As we all settled in they announce there will be a slight delay as we wait for them to deice the plane.
The flight attendants walk through the plane asking "Tap water? Would you like some tap water?"
They start a movie for us. The movie ends and the deicers are still not there.
Two and a half hours later we finally left Chicago.
I arrived at my hotel at 2:20am Eastern time.
I'm tired, so very tired.
Bug did a very sweet thing though, he drew a family picture for me and slipped it in my suitcase. He told me it was so I wouldn't forget him. sniff sniff, I love that boy.
