Still like a furnace in SE PA, but nasty storms and high winds coming later into tomorrow to drive the humidity back to the Atlantic and lower temps for Friday and the following week. Will be nice to open windows and shut down the AC.

32 weeks to go now. But who's counting?

Good morning! We have been having thunderstorms every evening this week. It sure is keeping the grass green. I'm heading into the train room for a few hours before Grandpa duty starts. I hope everyone has a great day.


Keep those pictures coming Dan. I love waking up to a new picture of the F&SM.

Me!  But my number is at 216.   :(

Our living room is back in order (more or less) and my workbench is back in it's home so I can use it again.  I got a few minutes in last night.  This weekend is a three day weekend for me so there will definitely be some workbench time during that period.   :D

Have a great one!

Rain today, hot tomorrow, and then it looks like an early fall in SE NH.  Temps in the low to mid '70s for the weekend into next week. 

Yesterday I spent some time at UNH trying to register for this semester's geology class.  Turns out I can't register to audit (at 1/4 the price!) until after the first day of class.  I think academic bureaucracy is worse than military bureaucracy.

Afternoon, all.


Back home finally from our trip east.  Were supposed to be home yesterday, but got to O Hare and flight was cancelled due to weather, so stayed in Chi town overnight.  Exhausted from getting up at 0300 EDT on Tuesday and 0445 CDT today, along with dealing with the hassle.   :o   Our bags still haven't arrived, either.

Sorry Dr Jeff had so many problems getting home.    Here are a couple practical hints, I travelled -a lot- when I was working (probably 1.5m lifetime miles, if they were all on the same airline.)

1.  The airline that delivers you to your final destination is responsible for delivering your bag, regardless of what other airlines you flew on during that trip.

2.  When they announce a flight cancellation, listen -carefully- for the reason.  If it's weather, they are not responsible for putting you up, feeding you, etc.  If it's any other reason, particularly mechanical, crew availability, equipment change, etc, it's the airline's responsibility for putting you up, feeding you, etc.  Now if you get caught by a weather cancellation, politely ask the airline desk for the name of the hotel they send people to.  Usually, they have a rate with that hotel.  Then talk to that hotel and tell them the airline sent you, to see if they'll give you the airline rate.

3.  If you're flying to or from Europe, even on a US flag carrier, they're bound by the EU rules, which are very generous for any problems.  See https://europa.eu/youreurope/citizens/travel/passenger-rights/air/index_en.htm   (It would be -a great thing- if US adopted similar rules!) 

4.  The specifics of what the airline owes you in other circumstances is spelled out in their Contract of Carriage.  If you travel an airline extensively, it's worth putting a copy of that (PDF) on your phone.  I once helped another passenger by being able to quote Contract of Carriage provisions to the gate agent (he was unsure if he could send someone to LGA if they were originally booked to EWR.  I pointed out the Contract of Carriage said 'those airports are equivalent', and he said, "Great" and issued the boarding pass.)

5.  Always know your 6 character Reservation Locator Code.  If you have to call the airline, that's what they need to find your reservation.  If you're traveling on multiple airlines, when you make the reservation, ask for each airline's locators.  (Sometimes the booking airline's locator code is different from the carrying airline's code.) 

Hope this saves someone a hassle, and "thank you for flying the not-so-friendly skies!" :-)
