I am Home

And today is travel recovery day.

While I am on rants about travel and cities that can't deal with weather even though it totally happens.  Here is what I learned on this trip:

San Francisco's airport does not have de-icing equipment.

My flight was delayed an hour after a storm passed through because we were waiting for the slush to melt, or fall off the wings.  After awhile the pilot called in said, "Can someone just bring a broom over here?"

That worked, so perhaps SFO doesn't actually require expensive de-icing equipment.  But they certainly require more guys with brooms.

San Jose doesn't have de-icing equipment either. You should have thrown through LAX.
