I think I could turn this blog into a musical today. We could start off with "Leaving, on a jet plane ...", followed by "On the road again ..." and then of course today's title song "Some days are diamonds, some days are stones ...".
Well, at least we reached our destination safely. finally! Here's about the only shot I could take today, given the circumstances. I took this in Charlotte, NC when they were starting to fix a flat tire on the plane. This the captain discovered after we'd taxied out to the runway and were about to start the takeoff roll. Captain: "we have an indication that we have a flat tire; we have to turn back to the terminal where I'm sure it'll only take them 30 seconds to check it and we'll be on our way." 30 seconds became 2 hours since a brake problem was also discovered. Of course that all took place after an earlier 1-1/4 hour delay. Definitely stones today.

Of course, there was a really cool cloud formation along the way after the delays, which somewhat made up for the day's problems. (and since I've been up since 04:00 a.m. I'm calling it a day).
