Thursday August 16, 2007

Today's the day! Took the cats to mom's, had lunch with her, then headed to Cindy's for our 3:30 departure. We met Mark, Denise and John at Crossgates, then shot down the highway to pick up Jack along the way. Uh oh. Major traffic jam. We're now standing outside the car in the middle of the thruway chatting with other motorists. This is weird standing in the middle of the road. It appears that there's a rollover up ahead. Here comes the medi-vac helicopter. Mark says that that's a good sign that they're getting ready to let the traffic through again. A quick stop at the rest stop and we're on our way.

Yippee! We're at JFK. Goodbye Denise and John! See you in a couple of weeks! Jack and Mark are manning the luggage while Cindy and I head to long term parking - located on the other side of the universe, it appears. Is this the largest airport?? RR-I-N-G. "Hello?" Uh oh. The car John and Denise were driving (Mark's) was towed! Seems they were parked in a loading zone, and even though the guard told them it was okay to cross over to help us unload the luggage, they towed it anyway. I think we'll wait to tell Mark. Poor John and Denise. What time will they make it home tonight?

"That will be $369 please." Yikes. That's what happens when you have over the limit of baggage. Still better than shipping stuff in and hoping it arrives safely without disappearing.

More later. Fingers crossed for a safe flight.
