Day 2374 - Stranded in an airport...

Greetings, Bloggy Frequent Flyers!

Trying to get HOME from Minnesota was unpleasant due to multiple weather delays.

I got to bed that night at 1am, and had to go to work the next day.

My experience however was not as unpleasant as a coworker who got stranded at the airport till the next AFTERNOON.  YUCK!  That must have been awful.

I tried my best NOT to get stuck by being proactive in any way I could think of.

I called the airline as early as possible to see if I could be rerouted.  I couldn't.  (drat!)
I got to the gate and tried to go standby on another flight.  There were others ahead of me and I didn't get on. (drat!)
I tried to get in an earlier boarding group so I could get off the plane first and make my connection. I couldn't switch. (drat!)

The good news?  I did make it home without staying an extra night, but it was a lot of extra time and aggravation!

No fun when there are travel aggrevations.
That's awful! What caused all the delay? Better travel ahead!
