I am sitting in the Des Moines airport writing this waiting for a flight to Denver. This isn’t the original plan. I was supposed to be flying out of Cedar Rapids to Chicago then onto Denver but due to weather issues I am now flying directly to Denver. So, score one for me, oddly enough. It’s not often that weather cancellations actually make for a better flight path but they did for me today. I found out early enough about the cancellation to be able to reroute and get to where I needed to be in plenty of time. Also, for the record, the United agent that I spoke with one the phone was absolutely lovely and helpful.
There are tons of Iowa State students flopped about in the various gates, exhausted by either the finals that they just finished with or the parties that came after. Listening to their conversations makes me both miss being at school and to be very glad that I am no longer there.
I know that the weather I am going to be flying into isn’t nearly as nice as the weather we are having here today. I have packed a jacket and even gloves.
Adventure here I come!
