Day 064 Long Wait in the Airport | When we arrived at the airport at about 5 a.m. we learned that our flight had been canceled because it was supposed to go through Chicago, which I guess was covered in very deep snow. They gave us a few options and we decided to take the plane that would leave at 3 p.m. because it would get us back to the same airport where our car was parked in Virginia, and we figured a long wait early in the day would be more tolerable than a long wait later in the day. Fortunately, we had electronics and chocolate, so the long wait wasn't too bad. ;) Caroline and Ian caught up on sleep and I really enjoyed the Chinese Chicken Salad I had for lunch. We even got invited on the plane early when the lady saw we have a still-somewhat-young child and we got to sit together. The short layover in Denver made the two airplane rides shorter and when we got in to Dulles at 1 a.m. we were tired (or already asleep in the cases of Caroline and Ian) but okay. The worst part of the trip may have been the slow drive home through swirling snow, but we made it and were in bed by 4 a.m., about 24 hours after the alarm had gone off in the hotel the previous day. Whew!
