Emergency Alert Text

Great. The past four trips to/from Denver, I've had some type of delay. It's either due to mechanical problems or weather. Sometimes I'm blessed that it's both.

Today, my flight was delayed almost two hours because they couldn't find a part for a door that needed to be fixed. Seriously. Does Delta not fix their planes until they are parked at the gate?

I finally make it to Denver, and as I'm driving to Colorado Springs, I hear a sharp, piercing noise I haven't heard before. Thinking it was something with my rental car, I slow down and am about to pull over on I-25 when I realize it's actually my phone making this horrendous noise.

Turns out that what received is an alert that will be part of a national weather alert service. It didn't bother me receiving this in the afternoon, but later on the news I heard that many people received this alert at 4:30 AM. I, too, would not have been a happy camper.

Well, that means I probably have to leave super early again on Sunday to catch my flight. Hopefully they won't delay it, mechanical or weather related.

Looks like Minnesota is finally getting into the game!
