More Travel Fun

Apparently, taking the redeye from Las Vegas wasn't enough excitement. I was dozing off on my connection from Minneapolis to BWI when the flight attendant announced that the plane had "an electrical problem", and we were diverting to Madison. I wasn't worried, since there wasn't an obvious problem. When we got here there were emergency vehicles all down the runway, and they had us towed to the gate rather than using the plane's power. Then there were firemen meeting the plane, both outside and in the jetway. So.... I'm guessing that we won't just be hopping back on that same plane after a brief stop :)

Bottom line, I have no idea how long I'll be stuck here. My trip just got longer :/

Update: Well, things are defined, but not well. I'm catching a flight from here at 3:30, and then I get a 2 1/2 hour layover in Minneapolis, before I fly from there to Baltimore. That gets in at 10:30 PM. This day just keeps getting longer :)
