     Air Tran flight 449 left my departing airport at 7:10pm on Tuesday 29 June to arrive in Atlanta, Georgia at 8:56PM.  NOT!  Atlanta was closed due to heavy storms from Hurricane Alex.   We had been circling awhile, the plane taking a few drastic pitches...

    Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Rr

    My Automobile Memories And Thoughts
