Airport hell

After last night's fever nonsense and this morning's monsoon in Orlando, you can bet that all I really want to do is be in my own bed. Unfortunately, it's gonna be awhile. A long while. And my ears are all blocked, I guess from the cold symptoms combined with the airplane pressure.

Our flight out of Orlando was delayed because the plane was late getting out of Houston, due to snow of all things. So we got in an hour late to Houston, only to find that our flight out to Seattle had been delayed by two hours. Then it became three hours. Now our 8:55 leaves at midnight.

The one and only positive thing about this is that we have first class seats. Actually, the flights for the whole trip only cost the fee to transfer some of Diana's miles to me, which is one of the reasons we were motivated to take the trip in the first place. Sadly, we won't get to enjoy the perks of first class because we'll likely be out cold.

I can't emphasize enough that we had some good times on this trip, and I'll write about some of those once I've had time to recover.

Even "just" sleeping in first class is far more enjoyable than in coach. I'd say you'll be able to enjoy it just fine.

That sucks about the awful delays, though.
