The Wonders of the Jet Age

It is almost 8:00 a.m Thursday morning and right now I should be in a meeting at Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minnesota – but no I am here at home in Miami. I left for Rochester yesterday morning – but here I am.

Yesterday I boarded an American Airlines flight from Miami to Rochester via Chicago. The flight from Miami to Chicago was delayed over an hour due to weather in Chicago – but I had plenty of time to make my connection.

When I arrived in Chicago I had a 90 minute wait for my flight to Rochester. At the gate American announced that the flight to Rochester was delayed due to weather. I sat and waited patiently – which was difficult as it was the second flight delay of the day. About 45 minutes later American announced that the flight was cancelled due to weather in Rochester. All flights to Rochester and even Minneapolis were completely booked. So, I got on a flight back to Miami and was home by 10:00 p.m. last night. What a funny day.

S0 – I left my home for the Miami airport at 9:00 a.m., flew to Chicago and came back the same day with absolutely nothing accomplished. Oh the wonders of the jet age.
