Let It Be Known...

...that I passionately love my job. Never mind that every place we landed this week was less than 20 degrees in temperature. And when the windchill was factored in, my teeth started chattering just thinking of the number (forty degrees colder, in case you want to share in the misery with me). Never mind that we got called on Wednesday at 4:15 PM to depart Sky Harbor Airport at 5:00 PM! And fly to the east coast. Even considering all of this, I completely love my job. It felt so great to be in the sky again! I could have easily done without the 55 MPH winds when it was already zero degrees outside (why isn't Florida ever on their map in the winter?). But all things, considered, it was a great week at work.

I was severely reminded why I love living in Phoenix. I hate being cold. I dread it. I pile on layers of clothing and coats to attempt to counteract what I am going to feel outside. I am still unsure how I survived four winters in North Dakota. If I have my way, I will live somewhere warm for the rest of my life! We all know heaven doesn't have snow and is always set to a perfect 77 degrees.

We had Big Boss and four additional passengers on board this week, including one's 9 year-old son. He got ten pounds of jelly beans at our last stop in Chicago. I was hoping he would forget about them and leave them on the airplane, but no such luck. I love the people I work for. Even if they do try to freeze my little brain for six months each year! We even visited two new airports at Fitchburg and Waukegan. It's fun to see new places (from the warm indoors, of course).

Sorry if this seems to be mostly about temperatures. It was definitely a theme at work this week! I am still trying to thaw out, but I think sleeping next to a warm husband helps!

  1. We're in the deep freeze right now too! I don't mind it at all. It's a nice excuse to stay home, watch a movie and drink hot chocolate. Love you!

  2. Awesome entry! It connected most of my life! Grew up in Rochester (know that rusty bridge over the Genesee River well!) - went to college in NH and worked at Jet Aviation BED for a good while, did my first off-airport solo flights to Fitchburg, then back to PHX where I live and work now! Thanks for the great photos!

  3. Thanks for hitting UGN and DB Aviation in your travels. We're happy to have you! Wish we could control the weather... But it does help in De-icing sales! Happy holidays, Andy Schweickert, Director of Marketing, DB Aviation


Make my day. I love comments!
