Captain’s Log 6,101
It’s that day again today. Our no-pay day should be huge. Lots of people are already taking off for the Thanksgiving holiday. I know they will show up at our doors later today.
We had some cutie pies visit over the summer. I asked permission (of course) and then snapped this photo. The little girl was really into the red horse. Cute.
Little people can be adorable.
I picked up one of the staff from the airport last night. A low marine layer rolled through as I was waiting, and the fog became so intense they had to cancel flights. I think her plane was the last one they allowed to land before shutting the runways. It was eerie.
Weird. As soon as we drove up one of the hills near downtown, we were completely on top of this. Even so, the planes could not land because they could not see the runways.
The fog hung around until about 11:00 last night. Thirty seven flights were diverted to Los Angeles or Palm Springs. I am glad they did not divert her flight. That would have meant a midnight pick up (maybe) or they might have put them on a buses. That’s another option they use with fog. I was supposed to land in San Diego once around 10:00 PM. We diverted to Los Angeles. We tried it again. And we diverted BACK to Los Angeles. Then, we got on two big buses and rode to San Diego. I got to the airport at 5:30 in the morning. Color me crabby for that!
What does a fog bank roll-in look like when it’s coming in?
Kinda like this. I moves quickly and causes a lot of stress for people trying to drive or fly planes.
Off to work. Short day today and even shorter day tomorrow. And then……..Thanksgiving!
