Rather than driving toward Seattle, we're still at home doing what we can at this end to help Tom, Ellyn, and Haley, who looked to be marooned at the Durango Colorado Airport when UA suddenly canceled a couple of flights.
As of a few minutes ago, they've managed to rebook on a flight out of Albuquerque tomorrow morning. This will involve a one-way car rental, and a 3 1/2-hour drive on a snowy day.
Still, that's better than the alternative, which is no flight at all.
It's probably lucky they tried to start their trip one day early, but it's all a gamble at this point.
It'll be great when we see them all in Miami!
