A Weather Weary Weekend Ends On A High Note

Good Morning Everybody,

Since we last visited I have to tell you that the weekend did not go exactly as planned.  In fact it almost did not happen at all. I was REALLY looking forward to seeing my daughter late Thursday evening and spending the weekend with her.  Bad weather hit Thursday afternoon and my daughter’s travel nightmare began.

She was cancelled from the LaGuardia to Cincy flight mid-day.  I rebooked her out of JFK – a $65 cab ride to the airport.  1 hour before take off that flight was cancelled!  $65 more bucks to get home from the airport.  I rebooked her out of Newark, NJ for the next day.  After a $95 cab fare and a 2 hour wait, that flight was cancelled too!! It took her 3 1/2 hours to get back home – that darn NYC traffic.  We decided to call it a day and we all had an adult beverage (maybe 2) that evening.

After a good night’s sleep I awoke at 7:00 a.m. and I was ready to give it another go with Delta – I’m 3 hours on the phone with them to this point. After 2 more hours on the phone with Delta Agent Brian, we managed to find a flight out Sunday Morning at 10:25 a.m. Eureka!  She made that flight and arrived – sadly 3 days later – into Cincy.

Yesterday was a wonderful day riding all the coasters at Kings Island.  The Diamondback Coaster – see video below was, in our opinion, the best ride ever!!!!  Today we still have a few hours to spend together before she heads back to NYC this evening.  So on that note gang, that’s my weekend update and I’m out of here to hang with Liz and LaDawn.  Things should be back to normal tomorrow.

See ya’ then,  David
