I got really lucky on Friday. My flight boarded around noon, and the snow started five minutes later. It sounded like we were going to be okay, the de-icer truck was called, and then everything fell apart. Apparently the truck was broke.
We sat for an hour before heading back to the gate, then sat another hour or two. All the while the snow continued to fall. Lucky for me, after a few hours of delay the de-icer truck was fixed and we did eventually get home. Even if i didn’t get back to my own bed until 1AM, it was better than being stuck in Seattle during their snowmageddon.
