My View For Awhile: Party Edition

I’m off to the East Coast and praying for adequate weather.

My last flight – this is so strange – was on 16 July. At oh dark the airport ramp is mostly – this is so strange – empty.

So is the terminal.

Connection ought to be smooth though I’m going the wrong direction for my destination. I had to change flights last night. My original plan was to fly from another city (cheaper than the outrageous fees from MSN) and stay with friends. Getting underway to that town I had a call to inform me they had been exposed to the Wuhan Devil. Hence, change of plans.

I should get to my destination before the bulk of the bad weather has much of an effect and I am asking the Holy Angels to mitigate the whole storm.

My I just say that I hate these melodramatic face diapers?


Rosy fingered dawn for the trade-off.


Next leg.

    Prayers for a safe trip for you Father! I know Southern New England is getting 12 – 18 inches of snow but that isn’t supposed to start until later today, hopefully you will be at your destination by then.

    fwiw i’ve found that a bandana is less annoying to wear than other types of masks for those circumstances where one is forced to mask up

    Fr. Z:

    Hopefully you were able to take off successfully from MSP. Maybe you’re on a good old 757 – Delta is doing what they can to keep those airborne. Is Delta still keeping middle seats open like Southwest?

    If you are going to Washington DC, enjoy your visit. I have heard New York City and northern Pennsylvania are expecting at least a foot of snow.

    Father, safe journeys. If you have time along the way where you have nothing to do, I recommend this series, starting with this video:

    An Englishman named Leo has been filming his ongoing work to rebuild the sailing yacht Tally Ho in Washington State. The early videos are pretty short, but once they get going, they are about twenty minutes in length and there are just short of ninety of them in all at this point. The jargon from Aubrey/Maturin will stand you in good stead in following along with Leo when he explains what he’s doing in each vid.

    Awful day to travel. Safe landings.

    Safe journey Father. I hear you about the mask. Our governor has us wearing them in buildings to shop, eat etc. And where I work, we have to wear them at all times unless we are in the office. I have grown to loathe them. Recently I had to visit the doctor and he suggested my problem was related to stress. I told him the stress was because of the covid, not that I am afraid of getting it because I’m not it’s the constant ginning up of panic by our stupid governor and the press among others.

    Thanks Jacob for the link. Wow that is some project he’s gotten himself into. Reminds me of a house or two that Mrs. JonPatrick and I took on in our younger days with more energy and less wisdom than we have now.

    Have a blessed trip Fr. Z.
