After 1 cancelled flight, a delayed flight, and a red eye I’ve made it to NY. My plane got in at 6:30 this morning, in which it was followed up by a 2.5 hour drive upstate. But, I’m here and ready for the wedding tomorrow.
Today, it’s finally arrived. I left my house in Wyoming to make the drive to Denver to spend the night at a hotel so I could catch my early morning flight tomorrow. I checked my flight status before I left the house, and everything looked good. HA!
As, I’m a good 3 hours into my trip, my phone rings a. 800#, this can’t be good. And, well I’m right they’ve cancelled my flight. I’m then put on hold for nearly an hour. What do I do, do I keep driving, pull over, turn around and go back home? Finally, when someone gets to my call, they tell me we can get you to NY on Sunday. Well great, but I need to be there before Sunday. I ask them to try any airline and give them 8 airports to try. The best they can do is get me to Buffalo, NY late Saturday night. Uhmmmm, yeah that’s not going to work, because I’m then 7 hours from where I need to be. I tell them cancel me and refund my money.
I figure I’m only a little over an hour from Denver I might as well keep going, and I’ll go to the airline counters myself if I have to. Or, I just won’t go to NY period, if I can’t get there in time for the wedding, there really is no sense in spending all of the money to go.
I call the husband and tell him what’s going on, so he starts looking to see what he can find, and my brother calls me with flight info for JetBlue, and it won’t cost a complete arm and leg to get the ticket. I hand over the credit card info and we’ve booked me a new flight.
The only problem is I have to check out of the hotel by 2 and I don’t fly out until 12:55 am. Oh well, guess I’ll be doing some laps at the airport and hanging in the hotel lobby.
Ah Mother Nature once again you’ve gotten me.
Here’s hoping for no further cancelled flights and only arriving 17 hours later than expected.
Happy travels to anyone else traveling this weekend, especially along the East Coast.
I leave tomorrow and in case you didn’t know I’m super excited about it. Except for this whole packing thing. My suitcase is over by a couple of pounds I think, and there isn’t anything else I can take out. I’ll figure it out of course it’s just a matter of going through the entire thing again and well I’m not awake enough to do it right now so tomorrow morning I’ll go through it again.
But these are so true of me, you’d think I’d learn.
It’s just been one of those days. Glad it’s nearing it’s end.
Thanks Rhonda for dinner and listening to my rant.
Here’s hoping tomorrow is better.
I’m getting super excited the day is quickly approaching, of course I have a million things to do before I leave on Thursday, and it just increased by 10 with the addition of a showing of the house. But, hey here’s hoping they like the house put in an offer and I can get out of Wyoming and move to some warmer, less snowy weather.
T-minus 4 days, well actually at this point it’s closer to T-minus 3 days.
Dueling Pianos strikes again in Wyoming.
And, of course cell service is not so great in this bar. So, no pictures for you. Maybe, tomorrow.
Rhonda and I are going to rock out to the Dueling Pianos that’s for sure. Oh, and they have a KEYTAR so I think we are in for good show.
