Sometimes Mother Nature has her own plans. Last night for example, I was supposed to fly into Denver at 8:20 and be in Boulder for beers by 9:30. But instead of landing like we were supposed to, we had to taxi around Denver for 30 minutes before heading to Wyoming to get gas so we didn’t fall out of the sky. By the time we made it to the airport at Denver, it was after 11:00, obviously blowing my plans for the evening. Something about bad thunderstorms and funnel clouds over Denver made them delay every flight last night, go figure.
So I apologize if you showed up in Boulder planning to talk to me. I’ll take the blame for many things, mostly because it’s usually my fault, but acts of nature are outside of my sphere of influence.
