I’m Leaving on a Jet Plane

Finally!  Today I leave for my weekend in LA and I couldn’t be more anxious to get out of here for a few days.  The weather the past two weeks has actually been pretty decent here and so naturally I wasn’t surprised when lastnight we had severe weather/blizzard conditions.  The bad weather conditions came so fast that the interstate was pretty much shut down in the middle of rush hour and some motorists had been stranded anywhere from 4-6 hours.  And were still stick with hours to go when I went to bed at 10:30.  Because of the road conditions, buses were trapped and they had to transport 200 elementary kids to a local school to hang out for the night.  Talk about a nightmare.  And it’s supposed to snow later today.

The good news is that it’s not currently snowing and the roads are beginning to clear up.  And I just googled the airport and they aren’t reporting any delays (unless it’s a plane coming in from another airport).  To be on the safe side, I’m leaving work at least an hour earlier than I thought I was going to because you just never know.  So here’s fingers crossed that if it snows it will be after my flight leaves and here’s to spending a weekend in warmer LA with my sister and no work!!  Whoo Hoo!!
