When I tried to get on a bus last December to go home for Christmas, it snowed and I had to wait until the next day.
When I tried to get on a plane to go to Alabama last Sunday, it snowed and I had to tromp through six inches of snow to the airport.
Today as I am trying to leave to go to Singapore, it is snowing again. And my flight has been delayed by an hour already, and it's still six hours until departure.
I just need to time my adventures better.
Or move to California.
