Back Home Early

Thanks to the hurricane, I managed to get home early. When the event cancelled this past weekend, I quickly took lunch and spent most of the hour on the phone. It took about 40 minutes to get United to cancel my IAD-> MCO flight and MCO->DEN flights and combine them into an IAD->DEN flight on Thur afternoon.

Most of the time was really getting approval because of weather to waive the fees and charges, and credit my account. Thanks to United, I got a 2:30 flight out of IAD.

However, that meant I needed to hustle. The event was downtown at 9th and K, which was about 35 minutes from the airport, but traffic is always a hassle. I had an 11am talk, which I gave, warning people I’d be hustling out. In the morning I packed my bags into the car, and after my presentation, I let the organizers know I was done and headed out.

All went well, and I got to the airport about 1:30, after turning in my car and getting gas. I had about 15 minutes to get a sandwich before they boarded the flight. Not a great flight with a middle seat, but it was sold out, so I’m glad I made it.

Things were looking up. We landed about 15 minutes early, which I appreciated. I got to my car and was driving at 4:35, about 10 minutes after the flight was supposed to land. I managed to race down to Colorado Springs to catch Kendall’s varsity match. Not much of a match, but always a pleasure to see my little girl doing well.
