And we're off...

So that's it for me for the next couple of weeks. Not that many will notice my absence, judging by the numbers coming here according to Statcounter. The summer blog doldrums are in full effect. I'll be heading down to Ottawa shortly to meet up with Cathy.

Hopefully.

She called me a couple of hours ago and her flight is fogged in. Granted, I'm not in St. John's, but the weather forecast doesn't look that terrible and none of the webcams in town I can find make the fog look that bad. Yes, it's always different at the airport, but I hope she gets away. I was very much looking forward to seeing her this evening. Not to mention the chaos it would cause if she can't make it to Ottawa before our flight leaves for San Francisco.

Typical. There's only one leg of this flight dependent on Air Canada. We're actually flying United to San Francisco just so we didn't have to deal with Air Canada. And yet, they still manage to find a way to potentially fuck it up.

Anyway, assuming all goes well, we'll be in San Francisco Saturday night, spend a week there with friends. Then we're heading down the coast highway to LA and San Diego for a couple of days to hit Disney World and the Zoo.

It'll be nice and we're looking forward to it, even if California is baking in a heat wave.

In the meantime, I doubt if there will be much on this blog. I think I'd rather be on a beach or meandering around San Francisco than doing blog updates. I might check my e-mail a couple of times if people really need to get a hold of me.

Other than that, I'll be back in Iqaluit on August 14. Behave yourselves…

Note: Just spoke with her parents. She made it out on the last Air Canada flight. I believe the rest for today have been cancelled...
