I flew into Tampa yesterday and it was one of the most bumpy flights I’ve taken.  We approached from the north and were getting tossed around pretty bad.  It turns out that Tampa was under a Tornado watch around the time I was getting into TPA, and you can see it was pretty bad weather.

This was one of my first Southwest flight’s of the year.  I’ve been living the dream with an upgrade score of 26 for 29 on legacy carriers this year. This flight I was able to snag the exit row and basically had a full row of legroom to work with.

  1. Nice purse and scarf you have in that seat (pocked) in front you. Not sure it goes well with your shoes and pants, though 😉
