I am in Denver. What a strange airport. I’ve only been through Denver 3 times (I think) and each time I like this airport less.
I think an undergrad designed it. Who thought that the layout for check in relation to security in relation to access to the gates was a good idea?
In any event, I am waiting for a flight… and waiting. The entire Delta system is “down” we are told and all planes are grounded. My flight was slated to be late to begin with (what else? … it’s Delta). They say that all flights are equally locked down, so I might get my connection.
The lounge is boring and my mind is a bit to flat to read much.
All Delta flights were grounded because the computers were down.
After about an hour wait we were told that the system is slowly coming back up and the flights will be released in a “phased way”.
I wonder what “phase” my connection will be in?
I have a serious appointment on Monday morning.
Okay… this is Zuhlsdorf’s Law, isn’t it. I get it now.
I have a backup flight out of MSP for tomorrow morning. Of course tomorrow morning is when I am supposed to sell my car back to VW. No, I didn’t wait long for that appointment.
FLIGHT CANCELLED “because of weather”
So this is not going to be good.
They are working “expeditiously”.
Here’s the deal. They cancelled our flight because of WEATHER. Right.
So, I put my hands around the necks of a Delta personnel, squeezed forth some travel vouchers, made a call to the poor priests who had to deal with me over the last few days, extracted my bag from the bowels of Delta and…
I now await my return.
I’m really tired.
Maybe tomorrow I’ll tell you of the whole story of helping the hasidim with their luggage while waiting for my ride. It ended with, “Tank you. Heer’s a dahlah.”
