Deja Vu All Over Again...

Here we are in the boarding lounge at SFO (San Francisco, for non-Californians), having had our flight cancelled last night, after four hours sitting on the tarmac with no news and nothing happening. After scrubbing the flight at around 2AM, they put up in hotels those people who didn't have a place to stay in the Bay Area and told everyone else to go home and come back at 9AM for an 11AM departure. We could have gone to our apartment by taxi, but we didn't like our chances of getting to the apartment, sleeping a couple of hours, and and then making it back to SFO on time, given that it's raining and we'd be in rush hour traffic, so we spent the night on the benches in the terminal.

Keep your fingers crossed that this 11AM flight actually goes...our kitties NEED us at home!

Wow, looking at the grammar and syntax of that first paragraph, I can see I'm sleep deprived (or maybe just crazed!)...

Next post from Oz, one hopes...

Well - if I had been on my vacation - we might have crossed paths at SFO!!
Hope you are home - safe and sound!

Golly, sounds awful!
Glad to hear that you got back safe and sound in the end.

I would travel everywhere by train and ship, if I could.....Airports rub my nerves raw, and the idea of sitting around and then having to come BACK...well...

Are you home yet?

Hope you made it home safely. We were in the airport all day on Sunday but did get out on the last flight...of course it was a very short flight compared to yours.
