It's part of flying, and there's nothing you can do about it. . . perhaps.
You're trying to get to your destination, or maybe you're trying to get home. You look at weather and no matter how you plot out your time, direction of flight, and other options, you're staying put!
Blessing or curse?
I guess it depends what you'd like to make of it.
Flying home from OshKosh I met up with a couple stranded at Mason County Airport (LDM) in Ludington,Michigan. If I were to be stranded anywhere, Ludington would be my dream! Beautiful sandy beaches on Lake Michigan have made this town one of busiest resort towns in Michigan.
Again, blessing or curse?
This couple called over 40 hotels, motels and bed and breakfasts only to find all of them sold out! Once again they reviewed their options. Fly to Ann Arbor for a better position in morning, sleep in plane, make use of comfortable lounge furniture in terminal lobby?
The adventure continued. . .
A call from a local Bed and Breakfast revealed that there was one room they hadn't discovered. They'd have to share a bathroom, and there was no air conditioning, but there was a "bed" and a "breakfast!"
It turns out that this couple had also spent night in Ludington on way over to OshKosh when weather prevented them from flying across lake.
