A “jet fuel” morning

January 11, 2010 at 9:46 am 4 comments

NOTE: If you are already tired of reading about my upcoming cruise, don’t read this entry!

We live very close to an Air Force base.  So close, in fact, that some mornings—when the weather conditions are just right—we can walk outside and smell jet fuel. Today is one of those days.

When I opened the door just now to let the cats in/out of the garage, I got a whiff of that familiar odor.  It’s never really bothersome; it’s just part of living where we do.

But when I smelled it this morning, I realized that in four five days, I will be sitting on a tarmac in Oklahoma City and inhaling those same kind of fumes. For sure, I won’t mind that because it will mean I’m on my way to Florida to get on a cruise ship!  🙂
