Good morning from 35,000 ft

We are about 40 minutes into our AirTran flight down to Ft. Meyers, Florida. Since AirTran is providing free WiFi this month (courtesy of Google Chrome) I just couldn’t pass up the chance to post live from 35,000 feet.

I didn’t see the lunar eclipse ┬álast night, mostly out of laziness. I was up at 3:17am when the eclipse was supposed to be at its peak, but the moon was directly overhead and those I tried looking from several windows in the house, I couldn’t see it. I suppose I could have gone outside, but it was in the low 20s and I was warm and comfortable, and besides, I can see it again in another four centuries or so, right?

The Little Man was very excited to fly on an airplane this morning. When we arrived at the airport, he watched the various planes moving about from here to there, pointing them all out excitedly. Once on board, he was alert for the takeoff, sitting in my lap and watching out the window. Five minutes later he was sound asleep. But then again, he’s an old pro at this. Today’s flight is his 9th.

A number of people have asked me if I was going to be blogging while on vacation. I think this post gives a good answer for that, but just in case it’s not clear to anyone: yes!

Should be back on the ground in an hour or so. And magically, the temperatures will have gone from the low 30s to the mid 70s. Ahhhh!
