The Wall Street Journal politics blog gets a note from the WSJ reporter on Condi's plane, showing that there's no hiding from northern Europe's gales --

Despite near gale-force winds in London, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice sticks to her dinner plans with Foreign Secretary Margaret Beckett and braves a nail-biter of a landing at Heathrow.

After her plane circled London for twenty minutes and was buffeted by fierce gusts on the way in, Rice comes back to needle the reporters travelling with her. “I just wanted to make sure the back of the plane was still here,” she said, adding that “it helps to believe in God.”
