I'm sitting in the Admiral's Club at JFK right now.

There's 8+ inches of snow on the ground.

Every flight but one to DFW has been canceled.

Every other flight is oversold or completely back up with other travelers delayed with all the canceled flights.

*Misery*

I really hope I get home. Getting stuck here all weekend would royally suck.

Could be worse. You could be stuck in Chicago or Detroit.

Hate to say it Jim, but you may need to make plans to hang out there this weekend. Freezing rain is following the snow and doesn't look to be letting up until early Sat morning. :(

Hope you get some good luck and snag a seat outa there soon.

Ugh. Canceled.

So, now I'm flying to LAX to hopefully red-eye back to Dallas and be home by Saturday morning.

Fun, eh?

This is only about the 50th time I've had to do something like this in my life.

Flying sucks. 10 hours of flying to make a 3 hour trip.

Please. For $300/year it's got two advantages: clean toilets, and a quiet place to sit.

Other than that, it's still an airport I don't want to be in.

Dallas flight canceled. Missed two LA flights because I didn't have enough priority to get on. I'm executive platinum, on a disruption, AND a full fare. I was #8 (!) on the stand-by list. They had 4 people with first class tickets willing to fly coach just to get on. To say the least, I didn't make it.

There's 3 flights left today to LA that would get me there in time to catch the overnight back to Dallas.

I did find a nice little wine bar tucked into a corner of the new JFK terminal. I wonder how much expense account latitude I'll get?

Fingers crossed for the next LAX flight...

Jealousy is really rearing it's ugly head today! Underpowered dirty coon-boy is really showing his colors.

I think you should paint that Katoom green. That when, when I do show up on the 1125r *or* the ST1300, you can really match your bike.

Ben promised me a SMR full of long striaghts and few corners. Oh, and lots of slab! You're dust!

If I get stuck anywhere, it better be LAX. I'll just drop by that "rent a desmo RR" place and take the duc on a ride! :yippee:

Made it to LA. Flight back to Dallas in 3 hours.

Gotta go get drugs so I can sleep on this last leg.

Travel sucks.

At least I get an upgrade on the way home.
