We had a long trip into DC yesterday. From our vantage point, we just saw clouds, as we circled the airport for 20 hours (in 20 minutes blocks of time). By the time the 4th round of a 20-minute hold came along, we were told that if a 5th were ordered, we'd have to go to Dulles to refuel. Didn't happen, fortunately. It was pouring...and I wisely packed both my hooded jacket and umbrella in the roller bag that was sitting out on the tarmac, so got drenched.
The good news, it got me a really nice room at the Holiday Inn. Pretty swanky. Watching the news last night, turns out the weather had been quite bad, two airplanes were struck by lightning, the roof ripped off a church.
