Tensions were really high in the airport terminal tonight, on the eve of the Frankenstorm known as Sandy. My 6:30 flight was delayed once to 7:15. And then it got delayed again to 7:45. And then 8:00.

I snapped this shot of my plane before boarding. The crew was working really quickly to get luggage onto the plane, and everyone behind me was lined up and ready to board well before the people arriving in Boston had exited the plane.
