Deice
--------
Weird word. Seems like longer ago than a month since we spent seven hours sitting in a plane getting deiced. Actually, it seemed like longer than seven hours...

True story: The pilot spent so much time deicing, taxiing to wait for the plows to clear the runway, back to the deicing zone.... that he eventually ran out of fuel! Another true story: When we finally took off, it was without our luggage, which was happily sitting on a cart out in the snow! Ahhh, the romance of airtravel. For this, I had to take off my shoes?
