    My Trip Report

    We had a 1:30pm flight to San Diego yesterday to visit our daughter and then on to Vegas this Sunday. Sat on the tarmac for 1 1/2 hours, then back to the gate and stood in line for another hour and a half to get re-ticketed for a 0620 flight out this morning.:confused2:

    Our flight was going thru BWI which was shut down due to a big lightning and wind storm. In fact, they told us at the ticket counter that the tower actually took a lightning strike and some people were hurt. So.....as much as it all sucked, some people were having a lot worse day than we were.

    Let's hope today goes a tad better...:beer:

    Hope you make it there safely and have a blast. In the end getting to Vegas and touching down in that evil tempting city makes it all the worth while.

    Good luck!

    Hopefully you bottomed out.
    Just remember you could have one of those people on the end of that lightning strike.

    It seems that flying anywhere at any given time seems to be problematic these days. It's not the best way to start out a trip but like you said others were having a much worse day. I'm sure by now you have forgotten all about it and are just enjoying your time with your girls. Bet you are having a blast. Just hang on to that and continue on that path in Vegas. Have a great trip and good luck :thumbsup:
