For as long as I can remember I've traveled for business. It's usually an uneventful process, but Tuesday this week was the exception. I've been doing the JFK/LAX round trip about eight times a year since 2002. It's usually the same routine on the same flights: American flight #1 at 9am from JFK to LAX, and then return flight #118 at 7am from LAX to JFK. Tuesday there, Friday back home.
For those of you who remember Tuesday's weather in NYC, we had between 3-5 inches of snow. If you ask my older children, Isaac and Leo, they can attest to the fact that I've missed almost every major weather event in the NY area for as long as they can remember. Snow storms, hurricanes, earthquakes (yes, we've had one or two minor ones over the years) -- I've missed most. Not Tuesday morning. This time, I was on a 767 at JFK.
