Happy Labor Day.
I was all psyched about getting up in the air and videotaping the expected back ups along I-75 and US 2 with the closure of the Mighty Mac today. I Had the video camera ready, had the glass on the cameras, and then nothing.
Storms rolled through the region, and the flight plans changed from getting to the trouble spots on time, to about 2 hours late. We hit the bridge about 40 minutes after it had already opened. No cool video of 50 miles of traffic back-ups, and no pictures of the throngs of people breaking in a new set of sneakers.
Chalk it up to how things can go sometimes.
So until the next over-hyped thing we promote here, enjoy an aerial picture of the bridge as it rests underneath a rain cloud.
