    I left GSO at 1:00 today, bound for Atlanta. Like always, Atlanta is having problems. On a good note, for once it's something beyond human control - weather. My flight was placed in a hold pattern around the airport after they stopped taking incoming flights due to aforementioned bad weather. Ater half an hour of flying around in a circle, the Captain announced he had a warning light on one of the systems and that we had to divert.

    We headed to Ashville, NC, barely two hours drive from where I left. [​IMG]

    Now, I'm sitting here on the ground. It's pouring rain here, we have a tornado warning in the area, and while Atlanta is open again, the weather system is square in between us and Atlanta... thus they are not letting us take off.

    "Atlanta is going to be a mess for the rest of the day" is what I was told by the stewardess. So what else is new? Why is it that Atlanta can't get their act together and build another airport like any other city their size would to alleviate the congestion there? Good effing Lord.

    To make matters worse, I forgot my spare laptop battery at home and this one hardly has any juice left. [​IMG] Oh well, at least the stewardess is being nice and allowing us to use electronic devices.

    GSO is a pitiful excuse for a commercial airport. :bergman:

    Meh, I actually like GSO. Clean, fast checkpoints, good parking...
