Somewhere in that crowd is Barack Obama, on the ground for 3 1/2 hours before heading off somewhere else and giving a speech there, too. Encircling the airport were three bazillion security people; police dogs, people with earpieces, the whole nine yards. A guy came over and checked me out when he noticed I was taking a few pics, but I escaped a tasing and was allowed to continue about my business.
This next video is the most boring video in the world, you have been warned. I took it last night, when we landed back at Pearson and were taxiing to our home base. The weather was foggy and misty, with 1 3/4 statute miles visibility and a ceiling of 400 feet reported on the approach. It got rapidly worse, and as I was driving home 20 minutes later, the vis was maybe 1/8th of a mile and the clouds were in the trees. I like how the fog plays with the light and colors the sky around the airport. It was at 7:30pm last night, but you really can't tell what time it is in the video 'cause it's all ghostly and spooky and stuff.
Hell, it actually looks a whole lot like the simulators we train on down at FlightSafety every year. It's cool when your job resembles a video game :)
Infinite apologies for the crappy quality of the sound; a HD camcorder is at the top of my list of yearned-for possessions and if/when that ever happens I'll be sure to get one with good sound.
Oh yeah, about how Lisa and I met...I'm working on it now and I'll get to it right away - I just want to make sure I have my words correctly arranged before I open up this area of my life. When you read the story, you'll see what I mean.
