Trying to get home

I was down in Texas Tuesday and today, well I guess its almost Thursday now. I was on a SW flight from Dallas to St. Louis but it was delayed an hour. So by the time the plane arrived in St. Louis the flight was long gone I was supposed to be on to Chi. The next flight they had was scheduled to depart at 10 but it has been delayed because the plane was coming from Phoenix and had to stop for fuel in Amarillo. So the plane finally arrived and they boarded us. We are sitting out on the run way delayed again because of back ups at Midway. I'm so tired rite now. The person next to me keeps farting. The jag bag in front me is talking so loud to the guy next to him the entire plane can hear the conversation. Some baby is crying. The flight attendant is a bitch because she won't serve me a drink. I'm hungry because the damn St Louis airport closes all of its restaraunts in the terminal before nine. Suck a donkey dick this blows.

I booked the trip last Thursday and all the direct flights from Midway to DFW and back were booked so I had to book through Dallas Love field. I will never do this again. What a mess. How bad is it in Chicago?

Dogs and cats living together.. MASS HYSTERIA!!!!

As for the weather... most of the bad shit has passed.. just the tail end lingering around which should be gone in the next hours or two (my guess).

There is a potential for more bloom-up of storms feeding from what's at the IA/IL border now.. uncertain what that will do.

The pilot is starting the engines again. Hopefully I can get home and get some sleep.

Dude that sucks! At least you were flying into MDW. Lots of flights into ORD were cancelled last night.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!
