They’re Going Thataway!

The storm may not have landed yet, but the fine flying folks at LAX aren’t taking any chances. In the four months I’ve been watching jets land and take off from my 10th floor Westchester office today is the first time I’ve seen outbound planes taking off heading inland instead of the usual route out over the ocean. And I’ve not seen a single inbound plane, meaning they’re probably coming in for landings from over the water. Kinda trippy to see things so turned around.

Just observing and reporting.

Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
