Trapped in DC for the night.

Oh man, is today ever rocky.  The landing in Dulles was the worst of my life.  Plenty of wind shear and lots of rocking of our tiny plane.  For those who don’t know, I’m a very nervous flyer.  My hands were so sweaty I couldn’t white-knuckle the arm rest, despite my brain sending out the command to do so repeatedly.  After a missed approach and taking a second time to line up the landing they finally got the plane down.  I made it to the bathroom before throwing up.  I rule.

Apparently weather all over the country sucks today.  I’ve heard the closed down LaGuardia for a bit and that Chicago was seeing more delays than usual.  Long story short, my flight out of DC got delayed and there was literally no way for them to get me to Madison today.  So United was kind enough to toss me in a hotel with some food vouchers and to put me on the 6:30a flight out tomorrow.  I’d usually say “w00t free hotel room!”, except my job is my vacation, and I was planning on getting good and snockered with the fine people of Madison tonight.  It’ll just have to wait til tomorrow though.

I hear there’s a Medieval Times here…if any of you locals wanted to hit that up, I could be persuaded.
