No I'm thinking more about how much of a nightmare you'd be for the cast.

You wanna make a movie under my direction?  May God have mercy on your sanity!

My electronic devices sure are.  Personally, I will wait until at least Mother's Day before I begin making preliminary plans.

After New Years, I am going into full Easter mode.  Easter is March 31.

Wait, Bushie has siblings? I'd love to find out what they're like.

I have one older brother who is a 19-year veteran of the US Navy.  He will be retiring from the Navy in June 2014.  He is married and has a daughter who is turning 13 this Thursday.  He is aboard ship for the next 18 months so his wife and daughter are staying with his mother-in-law in Merrill, NY which is near Plattsburg and about 15 miles from the Canadian border.

And is he more normal than you?

Yes, but I hope you're not implying that my non-normalcy is somehow bad...

Anyway, I am awake on this slippery Christmas morning.  I will be headed to Will Rogers World Airport in about 15-20 minutes.

You've lost how many jobs?  I mean, it's good that you're employed now, but don't you ever wonder where you'd have been?

"Non-normalcy" is not bad. Your particular brand of it, however,

Yes, but I don't dwell on what could have been.  I dwell on what I need to do moving forward.  I don't live life looking in the rear-view mirror.  I try to keep my eyes on the road.

I made it to Denver about 45 minutes to an hour late.  I had to walk forever to get to my Phoenix gate.  The bird is here, so I will be on time to Phoenix.  Probably shouldnt have to worry about snow in Phoenix.  If there was snow in Phoenix I would have bigger problems on my hands!  The flight will be boarding in about 25 minutes.

The journey is complete.  I am home in my apartment.  I landed in Salt Lake City about 7:35 and got to my apartment around 8:30.  The last flight from Phoenix felt like I was a goldfish being sloshed around in a goldfish bowl as its being walked by a toddler.  The turbulence was so bad they had to suspend beverage service.  Thankfully, I had dinner in Phoenix and took my drink with me on the plane.

They were going to have beverage service? Which airline was this? Were you not in coach?

I was on US Airways in the back of coach.  Most airlines from what I've found do offer at least something to drink complimentary and I've traveled quite a few different Airlines this past year - Delta, Southwest, United, and US Airways.  Southwest even throws in free pretzels and/or peanuts.  I haven't flown American in 4 1/2 years since I worked in Atlanta for the summer of 2008, so I don't know their beverage/snack policy, but I know the ones I mentioned do.  Of course, its been since March that I flew Delta, so they may have even changed policy over the Summer and Autumn months.

Pretty sure he means the selling of Sprites and whatnot that goes on in the horrible US airlines between takeoff and landing.

Yes, they were soft drinks, mainly.  They did offer alcoholic beverages for a fee.  I stuck with the soft drinks, because I knew I had to drive home!

As far as I know, domestic airlines have never given alcohol for free. I remember the old days of reheated meals and free checked bags, but cocktails were always extra. It was quite a surprise to me when I flew Lufthansas in Europe and got free alcohol.

A storm update:  Christmas Eve delivered roughly 5" of snow to Salt Lake City.  There was a break Tuesday, but more fell today with about 2-3".  The roads are bone dry with just an occasional black ice spot.  However, the bulk of the storm is coming in overnight tonight with another 6-8" by 7:00 am Thursday.  The good news is that this is a colder storm so its ALL snow and no mix.  I should be fine getting to work in the morning, but I will be monitoring it closely.  The snow is starting to come down now.  The majority of the storm will be out of here by 7:00-8:00 am Thursday with just another inch or two the rest of the day and even that will be out by late Thursday night or early Friday morning.

Most likely, yes, because after the storm moves out tomorrow night, we should be dry, sunny, and cold the remainder of the year.  There's another small system coming in Sunday evening with snow showers, but at most an inch out of that one.  The next storm of any consequence looks like it will arrive the first weekend of 2013.

How could you possibly know the weather 11 days in advance?

They used to on transatlantic flights. A few still do, actually. I got a free beer on American.

That said, I do try to avoid US based airlines whenever possible.

Inks,

Nobody knows the weather 10-11 days out really, but this information is based on our local meteorologists.  I'm beginning to doubt it, though, because Weather.com which has a 10-day forecast that goes through Saturday, January 5, 2013, shows dry and cold.  Then again, they rarely ever show snow for us.  Weather Underground goes through Sunday, January 6, and it also shows dry and cold.  We'll see how it pans out.  10 days out is a long time in the weather world, so anything can and probably will change, but it gives me an idea of what is to come.
