Short Commute - Long Wait

I thought it would have been easy - flying into Ottawa last Monday, and then out again on Wednesday. It wasn’t until the landing at Toronto was aborted at the last minute (the flight before me had hit a bird on the runway), that I realized it was likely easier to drive to Ottawa than fly every week.

It’s going to be almost 4 hours either way - flying or driving, which is a bit of a pain in the butt. But at least having a car takes away the airport hurry up and wait feeling. Plus - I could be on conference calls for the whole drive ;-)

When the landing was aborted at the last minute, a wave of resignation washed over me - I was convinced that the next stop was going to be right into the CN tower. How’s that for optimism? ;-)
