How's The Weather?

 

We have the super bowl here in Arlington this week.  It is supposed to be the biggest thing to hit the area since Dan opened Galactic, but the weather has been terrible!  It has taken the focus off of what we expected to be, a week long string of craziness.  It really makes you realize how small we are in the scheme of the world.  All this money, all these plans, and everything is at the mercy of the weather.

We have some people traveling right now…as usual, and it also makes you realize how little pull you have in certain weather situations; especially with air.  DFW Airport shut down for the first time since 9/11 Tuesday.  THAT is a big deal around here.  It’s open now, but we will still have people trapped in various places around the country as well as the globe. 

We do have a major advantage in dealing with these situations because of our in-house air department.  We have access to the national desks for all the major US airlines, but even with that, the man upstairs can flip a switch and we all just wait.  I guess that is the way it is supposed to be though.  I can pick up the phone and make a lot happen with the airlines relatively quickly at times, but the weather will truly let you know who is in charge of things quickly. 

I hope everyone gets home as soon as you safely can. 

Have a great day, and go see the world.
