  Running Through the Airport, Again

This time we were late through no fault of our own, there was an accident on I64 and it took us two and a half hours to get to RIC instead of the usual 1 hr 40 minutes.

Terry made the very smart decision to park in the daily garage right by the terminal, reasoning that if we actually make the flight it will be worth the extra expense, and if we don't make the flight we won't be parked there long.

When we got to the counter the agent said the flight was boarding, but at least I got a confirmed seat (I was flying standby). We hurried through security and the terminal, but when we got to the gate they had NOT started boarding yet!

We arrived out-of-breath, but I was glad boarding hadn't actually started. I don't like arriving that late. Anyway, it was an easy flight, no traffic from JFK to home. NJ home, that is.
