What lovely weather for a holiday flight


And I had no idea where it was.

We drove through the entire parking lot. Twice. At this point I imagined that perhaps I had been transported to another dimension, a hell dimension of snow, where I was being asked to pay penance for some crimes committed in a past life.

Somehow, of course, I found my car, and cleared the mountain of snow off it, and drove home to eat pizza and commiserate with my husband. I had made it, but I will never look at air travel quite the same way.

This year, I’m going into my trip with confidence. So as long as I can avoid Snowmageddon II, and don’t forget where I parked, I think I’ll be fine.

Just the same, though: pray for me.
