I am writing my column this weekend about my experience at Lambert Airport after last week’s storm. When I returned, my car was not in nearly as bad a shape as many other vehicles that I observed. I felt very fortunate our vehicle survived the storm, right in the middle of it.
I thought the airport workers, management, the airlines, all did an exceptional job getting things ready so quickly. The airport wasn’t closed for long after the storm hit. It took a remarkable the effort on the part of those involved to get the airport and airlines up and running again so quickly.
I felt fortunate that I still had a car and ability to drive home. I was also thankful no one was hurt in the tornado.
The tornado does remind person how quickly weather events can change our circumstances.
