It was a pretty takeoff over the tule fog in the San Joaquin Valley.
What absolutely sucks is that there are no direct flights from Fresno to Reno. I would have driven but Donner Pass is a bitch this time of year, as the Donner party discovered tragically. So I have to take a 40 minute flight to LA, and then fly a little over an hour to Reno. In between, I have time to kill at LAX. I am sitting at the bar drinking coffee. I don’t feel too bad, because people headed to the northeast have it a lot worse than me. They just announced that they are pulling people off of the Boston flight. I guess no one is getting there for a while. That is supposed to be my gate, so I will have to wait for the reassignment.
