the waiting game

Karen got me to BWI in plenty of time to get on my flight to Cleveland, so th. I might even get some sleep that morning!at I could catch my connecting flight to Greenville. My plane should have left already, but it's not.even.here. It will get to Cleveland, at best, half an hour after the flight to Greenville leaves.

So, I now hope to go to Chicago to connect to Greenville. If I get there, I will get there four hours late. I guess we'll see how the day goes.

*EDIT* My plane may get there before midnight. If so, I can drive to Asheville. I might even get there in time to sleep before work!

GSB, Greenville Spartanburg Airport, is there to give me someplace to fly into from BWI. Then I drive 75 minutes to Asheville, NC, where my hotel and job are. I'm working for Mission Hospital these days.

I was just in NC a few weekends ago. Nice, but rather hot (when it wasn't pouring). Hope the weather's improved.

EDIT: BWI to NC via Ohio/Chicago? Not the most direct route. Driving might have been faster.

Driving *would* have been faster, if I'd known that everything was going to work today like clockwork...fashioned out of brie, sitting in Phoenix, AZ. I was not aware that today's Fickle Finger of Fate was the middle one.

Asheville's in a mountain valley (elev. 2200 feet or so, with peaks up to 4000 feet surrounding) and is so usually cooler than home, and when not actually raining, much less dryer.

That's further west than I was. How long are you going to be there?

40 hours a week, every week, until July 5th 2013. This has been the worst travel experience so far, but there's still time for it to suck worse. I was supposed to land at 6pm. I am now not expecting to *take off* until 11:20pm, if that.

A fair question. I made the reference without being certain whether or not I was redundant. That being said, since my trip from home to BWI to Chicago to Greenville to my hotel in Asheville took 15.5 hours, I can absolutely confirm that the FFFOF was the middle one.

And when it sucks worse, whenever that is, I'm sure it'll be TWO FFFOF's raised up at me. And so it goes...
