We’ve all been there. You have a cold or really bad allergies or a sinus or ear infection, you’re on a plane at nearly 35,000 feet and your ears are just about KILLING you. They’re not popping, the pressure is building, you’re afraid you’re going to break an ear drum, and all the gum, candy and swallowing in the world doesn’t help. But there’s nothing you can do except suck it up and accept the pain, right? Wrong.
Hi y’all! Welp, we couldn’t post our weekly recap last week because….Hurricane Irma. So this week’s recap will cover everything from this past week (which isn’t much because, say it with me…Hurricane Irma) AND the week before, as well.

Once final time, THANK-YOU SO MUCH for your patience as we prepped for, went through, and dealt with the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. Starting this Monday, we should be back to a normal “usually 2 a day” posting schedule.
