Ahh....home sweet home
Well we're home. If I don't sound overly thrilled about that fact, it's probably because I'm not overly thrilled. I really, really loved Denver, and miss it already. It doesn't help that we were welcomed back home yesterday by total and complete stupidity - par for the course around here. We flew out of Atlanta just ahead of a massive thunderstorm, and thought we were actually going to have 4 good flights in a row. Sadly, it wasn't to be - when we arrived on the ground in Savannah, the pilot informed us that because of that storm, the Atlanta airport had been closed. No problem right? Big problem, because the three Delta planes in Savannah bound for Atlanta couldn't leave, so our plane couldn't get to the gate. The only Delta flight not bound for Atlanta left, but our plane couldn't fit into that gate. Then they tried to get permission from the other carriers to use their gates, but couldn't. So we had to sit on the tarmac, 300 feet from the gate, for 45 minutes - BECAUSE WE COULDN'T FIND A PLACE TO PARK!!!! It was such a perfect metaphor for returning to Bluffton.....now, I can't say for sure that something like that wouldn't happen in Denver - but I think it's a safe bet.
