Beware the Ides of March

Ah yes, the storms on the East Coast have lashed their fury on the lands of York and Jersey, and the modes of transportation have felt the ill will of the tempestuous winds.

… in other words, canceled and delayed flights.  When your scheduled flight is to leave before the plane actually arrives at your airport, you know you are doomed.  It was one delay and cancellation after another.

Not much we could do about it.  My heart went out to the men and women behind the counter and on the phones who did their best to get us to where we wanted to go. My Dad worked for Eastern Airlines for over 30 years, and had to deal with these issues with passangers over and over agian.  They did their best, but to no avail!

Six boarding passes, three changes in flights, one trip to the airport and many hours later, we are still at home.  I was going to post a picture of our house, as that was the site we saw the most today.  But alas, tomorrow is another day!  (I believe Scarlet O’Hara’s exact words were, “After all, tomorrow is another day!”  (Bit of trivia – THAT is the last line of Gone With The Wind, not Rhett Butler’s famous line.  THAT line may be appropriate after today, too!)

Tomorrow we try again.  This will set us back a day, which is not so bad, because our first day there was to get acclimated – no touring, just getting settled.  With being a day behind, that will mean that when we get to Israel, we start touring that day.  We hope we can go right from the airport to join the tour group.

Prayers for good weather and made connections are requested.

Peace

Pastor Charlie

    Charlie,

    After 25 plus years of airline travel, across our united plains I feel for you!

    Bryan asked me if I wanted to fly up to Iowa this week and join him on a sales call – and I said “No, I am going fishing this week and please remember, I am retired”

  2. It was not a fit weather day for man or beast on the East coast yesterday, so better to spent the night at home than in an airport terminal—yuk!!

    Considering the skirmishes in Jerusalem on Monday, the delay is probably a blessing.
