Birds in the wilderness

It just wasn’t meant to be.  First there was a lightning strike that hit the launch pad on Friday.  Sunday’s launch was scrubbed and rescheduled for Monday.  Then before Monday could even get here – NASA said they needed more time for systems checks – hence the launch was moved to Tuesday.  Now with hurricane Ernesto headed toward central Florida, NASA has to start preparing to roll Atlantis back to the VAB before high winds reach Cape Canaveral.

So … disappointed … I decided it was time to go home.  Little did I know that bad weather was pounding the DFW metroplex.  So much for an on time arrival.  But on a positive note – the Orlando airport has free wireless internet, and I even managed to secure a power outlet to charge my laptop.

So here I sit (like a bird in the wilderness .. sing along – you know the words).
