Sad, but true.
Heard about those really, really BIG storms in Texas? Well, the Dude was in Ft. Worth on NWS business yesterday and today. Hey, someone else schedules these meetings. He just shows up on time. Sort of like the post office. Or maybe better.
So we were expecting him back tonight. But I just got a call. His flight out was canceled. He says they booked him on the first available flight. At around 6AM. Friday.
Oh, and btw, sir? We can't let you have your bag back. (The Dude always checks his luggage, even for an overnight trip, so don't start in on carry-on.)
So he has a place to stay and a rental car, but only the clothes on his back and a laptop in his briefcase. Presumably with a power cord. But the charger for his phone is inside the checked bag. Maybe he'll read this when he's bored.
