Fun times! Stuck in the Denver airport...

Monday, December 10, 2012

There is nothing quite as fun as being stuck in an airport when flights are delayed! I happen to be stuck in Denver as I blog due to the weather on the east coast (specifically Philadelphia). The current delay is 3:10, and hoping it does not grow any longer. As it stands, my flight will arrive around midnight, and after getting my bags, taking the shuttle to my car, etc, I'll be home close to 2AM! Thank goodness I had already planned to take tomorrow AM off from work!

In the meantime, always a fun sport to people watch. So far nothing out of the way of unusual, but with multiple flights delayed to the east coast, there is bound to be one or two folks who may start to sound off (as if the airlines can do anything about it!).

    Good coping strategy! I've never had to deal with airport issues (swear to whatever swearable, I have *never, EVER* flown - honest truth!).........however, I have, sadly, had my share of *car-related strandings* - no fun at all.......and I didn't even have the option of "people-watching" to fall back on.....


    Hope all goes well for you!

    I suppose security would complain if you ran around and up and down the stairs.

    people watching anywhere is fun and does help pass the time when just waiting. Hope you get (got) home safely. -- Lou

    Yes, people watching at the airport can be so much fun which can be distracting when you plan on getting some work done while you wait.

    I hope your wait isn't any longer than it already is. At least there is a lot to do in the Denver Airport.

    Many years ago my family and I were stuck in the Denver Airport coming back from a vacation to Disney We had to stay overnight in a hotel because of the weather. The rest of my family was upset because they had not taken an extra day off of work but,I thought of it as an adventure and had a good time. I wish you success with all of your goals. emoticon
