… when you spot the cot guy driving along dropping off cots at every gate. Turns out Dallas is not used to snow, wreaking havoc on many, many people’s travel plans yesterday. Many people waited all day as flight after flight was delayed and canceled. The great news? My flight was ONLY four hours late, when means I hit my hotel here in Atlanta at 2:30AM, got some sleep and will soon have a ride from a friend to the Created for Care gathering.
Things I now know about Dallas:
~Dallas seems to have more swimming pools per capita than is strictly normal.
~The lady who I became fast friends with while standing in line at the American airlines service counter DID make it onto my flight, which means she will indeed get to go furniture shopping at the outlet malls in North (South?) Carolina this weekend.
~ The very nice surgeon who was going to Atlanta for a conference did not get there after all, but (bonus for his patients) he DID reschedule all his surgeries for today.
~ There are at least two very sweet people, who, when faced by weather delays in the Dallas airport will take it upon themselves to apologize to this Idaho gal for ALL of Texas and it’s lack of snow-handling ability.
Things I am thankful for on this adventure called life: That wherever I go, I meet many kind people. Praise God for traveling mercies. And for the fact that I got where I needed to be. Pray for the retreat this weekend, that it will bless and nurture many precious mommas.
