Lost in New York

Line's luggage, that is...
As you all know, we just survived a 3 day blizzard here in the midwest. Line's parents arranged a trip for her to visit family in New York City during the holiday. Thanks to the redneck pickup, we were able to get her to the airport by 5:20 a.m. for her flight. (Hubby said that even our trail blazer would not have gotten us there!)




This is Line's suitcase...hopefully, not the last time we'll see it?!

Thank goodness all of her electronics were in her carry-on. After she cleared the security check, we waited and waited...the runway was too slippery for take off. Their flight was delayed for about an hour...while the luggage made the connection in Minneapolis, Line just missed her flight.

They were able to rebook her onto another flight about 4 hours later.
But her suitcase??? Hopefully, I will hear from Line that they have found it and delivered it to her with all her clothing inside...


Meanwhile back in Aberdeen, we hunkered down, as no travel was recommended...Not even within the city. Over 12 inches of snow was reported. You know it must be bad when ...Even the mall was closed...

Oh my goodness! All that snow...guess the rain and drizzle here is not so bad afterall:) Hope she gets her luggage back!

We got a foot and nothing was closed here, but we didn't have any wind so the roads got cleared eventually. I haven't been watching the weather...did you have a blizzard? I love big old nasty snow storms in the winter! :)

Sure hope she catches up to her luggage! That is such a headache.

Our son lives in Oklahoma City and they received a record 14 inches of snow. We didn't get quite that much but it was still pretty bad here (by Oklahoma standards.) So happy Line made it to NY ok and I hope she has a wonderful visit. Also hoping her luggage arrived and that she'll have a safe, non-eventful return trip.

Oh goodness... I hope all gets delivered successfully. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy your holiday.

Goodness, you got a lot of snow! I hope Line has received her luggage by now! We are getting snow now, no where near what you have gotten though! Stay safe and warm!!
