I finally feel the dread hand of winter

So I went to the airport to pick up my mom twice last night and neither time was she there. The first time (7:00 PM) her flight from Icy Northern City had been delayed and she mussed her connecting flight in Busy MidAtlantic City. She was rebooked but the next flight wasn't for like six hours. So home again jiggity jog. Four hours later Mom calls just after we leave the house to tell us her connecting flight got cancelled. But! I don't have a cell phone. So I still went all the way to the airport.

I know Mom's got it way way worse - she's currently partway through South Carolina having finally gotten the customer service desk to book her a rental car instead of another flight, as most of today's flights had already been cancelled when I got home from the airport and called her at 2:00 AM. But it very disappointing to keep going to get her (I only get to see my mama once or twice a year) only to be foiled! The little bird woke up as we pulled into the driveway after the second trip and started crying in confusion because her Grammy wasn't in the car (guess she forgot that whole part where we left the airport without her Grammy).

Well I am just going to lay down for a bit. If any of you are traveling today, be safe!
