[travel] The rest of the way to Omaha

After a very exciting aborted landing in Dallas, we got on the ground a bit late. (Ahem.) I rushed about for my connecting flight, but the weather had delayed the inbound leg and the equipment was not at the gate in time for boarding. When we did get on, they decided they needed more fuel in order to divert around the weather. Finally got to Omaha forty-five minutes late, but without further adventure.

Hertz was out of cars, so I spent fifteen minutes standing in the chilly air waiting for them to bring me something. For the first time in at least two years I got the car I'd nominally rented — a mid-sized sedan. No random upgrade program for me!

After that, a nice dinner with garyomaha and elusivem, as is our wont. We had Mexican and yakked a while, before I peeled off for the hotel. (Did get a suite upgrade here.) Been unpacking, chatting with calendula_witch and generally winding down. Tomorrow, the office!
