I had a short trip to St. Louis this week. Early in the week, the weather forecast was crummy for flying, so I hadn’t even considered it until the morning I was about to head out and the forecast for the first two days I would be gone. So I elected to take the airplane. Flying instead of driving helped as I had a pretty tight schedule with an early haircut and just enough time to get to my meetings downtown at noon. On top of that, I had wanted to swing by the office to pick up a few things. Taking the airplane, I had enough time to do both!
Heading back home was less than ideal, it was hot, and there was enough turbulence on the way back to get your attention for a few minutes. Despite that, it was still a good trip.
