I left my parent’s house yesterday with the intention to quickly pick up a friend at the airport and bip down to Provo.
Unfortunately, the flight was delayed until 5’oclock. So I drove around the airport aimlessly. Did you know they have a golf course there?
Eventually I got bored and parked in the garage.
I guess our delay wasn’t the only one:
A quick tune to Utah’s station for breaking news, emergency traffic, severe weather, and local talk told me that some poor driver flew off the freeway into a telephone poll.
And that shut down the 15 freeway completely. See how even the north-bound side is empty?
Google Maps says my total drive should’ve been 58 miles. My odometer reads 82 miles, which means I “explored” the airport for nearly 25 miles. But even with 82 miles, we only averaged 20 miles per hour.
