As Sara and I parted ways in the airport yesterday morning, I was a little flustered because the first leg of my flight for the day had been canceled. Thankfully, I was able to get on another flight that put me into Seattle in plenty of time to catch my flight to Chicago and then on to Syracuse where regional seminars were scheduled for today and tomorrow.
Then, just before I boarded the flight to Chicago, I received a phone call from a co-worker telling me the Syracuse airport was closed due to bad weather--she and others were stranded in Cincinnati, trying to find a way to Syracuse.
Needless to say, after looking at all the options and considering the safety of our staff and those of you who were traveling, today’s regional was canceled. And, with Syracuse covered in a blanket of snow and no inbound flights, it was decided to also cancel Saturday’s regional.
So, after spending the day in airports, I arrived home late last night, and the others are on their way home as well. I think I can safely speak for those of us who were looking forward to spending a couple of days in Syracuse with many of you: We are sorely disappointed! I’m sure you are too.
I’ll tell you what. Let’s wallow in our sorrow by sipping on a cup of hot tea or cocoa (if you can afford the calories!), turning up our favorite music, and stamping the weekend away! Then maybe we won’t feel so badly, you think?
