Home is Where we Hook-up

Business is booming

Filed under: Travel in the U.S. — Heligypsy @ 9:36 am

Check out this video clip of Las Vegas’s ABC affiliate covering the catastrophe at the Hoover Dam when 100 mph winds knocked down five construction cranes on Friday. The cameraman/reporter was circling the parking lot yesterday when I showed up to pick Keith up from work. Seeing the Washington plates on the truck he was interested in hearing my story – hoping I was frustrated by the road closure…..as that’s what his bosses wanted, a story about irritated and frustrated travellers. He was amused that I was the helicopter pilots girlfriend and we had a good laugh about the “lack of frustration” out on the highway. He scored with his interview of the biker, and later told me “disappointed” was about all he could hope for, that was a wrap for him.

So, there’s a glimpse of Keith’s helicopter flying tourists – they did record-breaking business yesterday…..on a day that everyone thought would be dead, dead, dead. Apparantly people can’t read – there are at LEAST four signs about the road closure, ha ha, no accounting for people’s travel habits.
