Home sweet home

Glad to be back!

It was a pretty smooth flight the entire time, a few bumps here and there...

About 30 minutes before we were to land the pilot gets on the PA and says "PREPARE FOR LANDING." I thought he had a lot of urgency in his voice. I also thought it was weird the attendants weren't coming through the cabin again. About a minute later I understood why. for the next 15 minutes we were going through some hellish turbulence. The kind where the anyone not buckled in would have been tossed around like a rag doll.

The plane was silent.

Then, all of a sudden, the ride was so smooth. For the next 5 minutes, no turbulence. I kept waiting for us to hit a huge bump of air. Then we landed. WHEW! Glad to be back on the ground! We definitely got our money's worth on that flight. It reminded me of the worst flight I have in recent memory.

Last year I flew out to Phoenix for the Rock n Roll race. My dad did the marathon, I did the Half. (That was his BQ, I was so happy to see him cross the finish line with a few minutes cushion) On the flight back to San Fran- 2 hours tops, was bad. Once we got airborne, the pilot came on the system and said - No drink service today because of the turbulence. everyone, including the flight attendants remain seated. OH NO! I thought- Im not a fan of flying, and turbulence doesn't help this irrational fear. For the next couple of hours the plane was bouncing around. A high school student in my row was puking the whole time. AWESOME!

Life doesnt get any better....
