I’m already dreading my Monday

See, I’m supposed to get up bright and early, finish packing my suitcase, and then drive to PDX to catch a teeny tiny commuter plane down to San Jose.

If we’re able to take off? I’ll be grabbing a pack of Dramamine first from Hudson News and keeping my breakfast intake on the light side.

And if we’re grounded for a while? Look for my Live! Up to the Minute! Blog Reports! coming at you, courtesy of PDX’s free wifi…

Update! 8:41 am! Live, from PDX!

Uh…there’s actually nothing to see here at PDX, people. Planes are departing on time, parking lot is full, and my flight’s full and oversold. Drive to the airport was fine. I repeat, fine

You may now move along….

Update x2! 10:28 am! Live, from PDX!

Spoke too soon. My plane has mechanical problems – so we all got offloaded so they can rip up the floorboards (!!!) to fix a sensor. I’m told we’ll be reboarding “within a few minutes…”. Meanwhile, at least two flights to Seattle via Horizon Air have been canceled, so there are people milling around here trying to reschedule, while others are just plain pissed.

That’s the latest report from PDX, where the weather is still rainy and the moods are dark…
