We began our decent into Minneapolis Airport Thursday night on my way to Indianapolis for the Great American Fly Fishing Expo when the Captain came on with bad news. Airforce Two with Vice President Joe Biden decided they going to take off from MN at that exact time we were landing and the airport closed. My flight was redirected to La Crosse, Wisconsin where we sat on the tarmac refueling and waiting for almost two hours!
Needless to say, me and thousands of normal folks trying to get to work or home missed our connecting flights in Minneapolis. Thanks Joe for causing me to get to my hotel in Indianapolis at 1 AM to start my busy weekend of speaking!
