J. Greely Broke the Plane

...rather impressively I might add.

The plane is quite broke.

5 hours after our scheduled departure time from Detroit, Delta finally threw in the towel and cancelled the flight altogether. Given the havoc even a 3 hour delay is going to play with transfers this was likely the right call. We've been given meal, taxi and hotel vouchers. I'm in a hotel in Romulus courtesy of Delta, which has actually handled this situation pretty well. It's not every day an airline has to deal with J Greely's amazing jinx powers. After all, we've seen what he can do with tramp tats.

OK, you got it out of the way. Now the rest of your trip will be smooth sailing!

Right? right?

7 I'm afraid I wasn't, Steven.  At the time, he said it was an "one hour delay."  My guess is that he's just leaving Detroit right about now... at 902pm Central.

Actually, my guess is that he got off relatively smoothly after the delay, because I haven't gotten another text from him since.

8 sigh....  Well, there is an old, old saying from the dawning of commercial aviation:  "If you've time to spare, travel by air."  We can hope this is the worst difficulty he faces on the trip.
