Back to the cold.....

Yes, I arrived safe and sound. Both flights were uneventful, unlike the one that hit the Hudson. I heard about that crash just as we were boarding in San Diego. In spite of 10 minute delay for "mechanical reasons" (the pilot needed to run the engine because of something he noticed during his outside check), no one decided NOT to fly and we arrived in Washington, on time! That was good, because I had a very short transfer time. No up-grading to business class this trip *snif*

Now I'm back in Germany, one hour EARLIER then planned because of strong tail winds.... according to the pilot, stronger then he's ever experienced in his career.

Now I'm back to the snow and around 0°C (32°F) My suitcase is half unpacked, the rest will be done tomorrow. My daughter, Regina, has already brought the cat back. And on Monday it's back to work again!

Now I'll see how much catching up I can do.... probably not much.



  1. I'm glad you made it home safely Dorrie! I thought you were flying back today. That is really cold!! Stay warm :)

  2. Glad you had an uneventful trip. Back to reality, huh? lol. Get some rest. Plane rides make me so tired/exhausted, just from sitting there, believe it or not. HA. Hugs.

  3. It is cold here too. 22 degrees F is rare and unwelcome here. glad you made it in one piece.

    I sure do appreciate your efforts on saving JAyess and keeping us all infomed.

    You ROCK!!!


  4. Glad you are safe on the ground again.
    It is minus 9 F here in Kentucky today.

  5. I heard that some of those people that got off that plane in the middle of that river actually got on later flights that same day~!

  6. Im glad you are safe and sound. I didnt go out today because the wind chill factor was - 17F here in Michigan. Too cold for me and my asthma. Tomorrow, we are having a get together at my parents house. It is a welcome home party for my dad. Its gonna be a blast.

  7. Wow, that was fast! Glad you made it home safely, and hopefully you will adjust to the "shivers" and cold weather.

    I bet the kids, grandkids, and Shiana, and your Wheelie, and other friends all missed you sooo much!

    It will be fun reading about your dance classes again too!

    ((hugs)) and a great weekend to you!

  8. Yay, glad you are home safe and sound. Im sure Shiana (did I spell that right?) is glad you are home too. :-)

  9. We're 2°C today, and I saw a girl in a tank top! Welcome home Dorrie!
