Today was a day to fly home on a Saturday. Not too often. Travel a lot. Just not away on Saturday usually. Cheney, Washington has been a neat little place to get away (and we are going to build there!). Incredible photo op’s. From spectacular rolling farms to a Wildlife Refuge only 5 miles from the city. Did I mention we are going to build there? Cheney is the home of the University of Eastern Washington. The Eagles. Last night they played a semi-final game on the road to a national championship game. They won. Clear skies. Twenty-five degrees at game time. Fun place to be after a big win. By the way Cheney has a population of about ten thousand.
First look out the window this morning window and it was a nice day. Second look was when I checked out. A blizzard. Really!
The drive to the airport was crazy. The walk from the rental car was insane…by the way don’t rent from thrifty in Spokane if you don’t like long walks in a blizzard. Safe inside. Plane was a half hour late. No big deal. We boarded our big and spacious 737. The door shut. “all electronics must be turned of”. Then the Captain – ” we have been told by the tower the airport is being closed” Time for a XANAX!!!!!!
Eventually (an hour later) we took off and I made it home. When you have claustrophobia as bad as I do there can be consequences when the doors shut and it is announced no one is leaving! I am glad Xanax works fast………
