So our Monday morning flight (already rescheduled) got canceled; luckily Northwest airlines ended up getting two spare 747s over to help clean up the mess of stranded Seattle travelers from this weekend...so; we got on a flight that was supposed to leave at 2pm.
2 hours of delays later, we finally took off...
Then, once touching down in -2 degree weather in MN, the gate we landed at did not have an operator so we were stuck in the plane for an extra 20 minutes until that got resolved.
Happy to be out of the plane & at home with the family now.
Big thanks to the NW airlines flight crew that opted to do a little extra work and help people rather than start their vacations early.
