I have been stuck in airports before, so I know the drill: You can get more information online about weather delays and other problems than you can from the gate agent, so relax and enjoy the drill.
Here at Orlando Sanford International, they have WiFi setup with a subscription service, but no way to create a new subscription. It is a work in progress. Good news, though, as Google and other Google services — including Google Apps — are allowed through the firewall for free. No need to pay; No need to figure out how to pay.
No muss; no fuss, I am able to work. Clean out the inbox, setup my tasks, and otherwise organize my thoughts as I travel home from vacation. The flight delay, while disappointing, becomes an opportunity to reduce my “back to work” stress.
Opportunities abound with the right tools.
