Happy New Year!

I’m back from a week on the east coast. I spent Christmas with my Aunt Mary (who was thrilled I could make it), then spent a few days in New York City and Binghamton.

It was a good trip, but I’m glad to be back. No real problems, apart from traveling back to Denver. We were scheduled to leave La Guardia about 4pm yesterday, with a connection at O’Hare. Our flight had been listed as on time, but was listed as “delayed” with no time given when we got to the gate. We found a nearby gate with an earlier flight that had been delayed, and managed to get transferred to that one. It was a good thing we did; it was scheduled to leave at 3pm, but didn’t take off until 4:51pm. Our original flight was delayed from 3:55pm to a projected departure at 8pm. If we hadn’t transferred flights, we’d have missed our connection in Chicago.

However, we got back without further incident, and the roads were clearer than we expected. More to come later; I’ve got to get set up to go back to work tomorrow.
