It pretty much rained all weekend in Portland. And when I landed today at LAX it was raining. The nicest weather I've seen in 72 hours was at Washington Dulles airport while I was changing planes -- go figure.
And the United flight from Dulles to LAX may be the all time worst flight I've ever taken. A narrow-body Airbus 380 with every single seat taken for five and a half hours. Miserable. At least I had a little extra room in an exit row. But it was a flight to be endured, not enjoyed.
