This Simily Update Should Have Been Published on Sunday from Seattle

Instead, it’s a day late but I am writing it in Seattle

I’ve been writing about my journey on Simily for 15 weeks now. It’s been an interesting adventure so far, though less exciting of late.

Typically, I publish the updates on Sunday. I planned to do so yesterday, but some air travel chaos thwarted my plans.

I was planning to travel to Seattle on Sunday — leaving Nashville very early in the morning and arriving in Seattle when it would still be morning there.

Instead, I was not able to board — even though I arrived at the airport two hours early. There were no other flights from Nashville to Seattle on Sunday. I was given a number to call and advised I could visit a “nearby airport” — perhaps in Louisville or Atlanta.

That wasn’t an option. So, I went home and took the next flight out of Nashville to Seattle — on Monday (today) at the same time.
