Keeping our Fingers Crossed

Korey never arrived last night.  He was scheduled to fly from Fargo, North Dakota to Denver and then to San Diego.  The plane from Fargo to Denver originated in Denver and was two hours late leaving Denver due to “schedule change due to ramp service”.  What does that even mean?  There were no weather problems, so it seems to me it was just some dumb airport snafu.

He would not have been able to make his connection to San Diego out of Denver so they rescheduled him to flights today.  He’s now supposed to arrive at 8:24 p.m. tonight, 20 minutes after Eric.

I originally tried to get him on flights for today, but the tickets were over $100 more expensive than they were for yesterday so that’s why I had booked him a day before Eric.  So, I guess it all worked out.

At least we found out before we left for the airport.  The two hour time difference paid off in this instance.  I was disappointed since I had been so looking forward to seeing him all day.  Now I just have to hope it all works out today.

Our first hurdle will be getting out of the campground.  The entrance road has a bridge over a small creek.  The lady in the office told us it has flooded in the past.   I’ve seen some vehicles driving in the campground, so I’m thinking they must be going somewhere.  We’ll find out soon enough.

This weather is sure crazy.  California is on track for the wettest December in history.  Since leaving Wisconsin, we’ve experienced record lows in Utah, record highs in California and now record rain.  This must be the year of extremes.

We never left the camper yesterday.  Cabin fever is starting to set in.  You can only play so many games and watch so much TV.

In less than 11 hours I should be hugging my boys.  Keep your fingers crossed for us!

Don’t wish upon a star – Reach for one!
