At the Airport. Again.

Published by at 11:29 pm under Boston

We’re just trying to get to Buffalo so I can get my car from my parents’ house and drive it back to Boston.  We already attempted this on Wednesday, but thunderstorms crippled the whole airport, and our severely delayed flight led to a flat-out canceled flight (after already having boarded!), and then we ended up back home around 3:00 am (the original flight was at 4:45 pm).  Anyhoo, it’s Sunday and we’re back at Logan.  Our flight was supposed to leave at 9:05 pm.  It’s now 12:15 am (wait a minute, it’s actually *Monday*, not Sunday, now) and JetBlue is suggesting we may be able to leave for Buffalo by 1:15 am.

I’m sure Dave and I will be in tip-top shape to drive 8 hours from Buffalo to Boston tomorrow.  If we actually get to Buffalo.

Thank goodness Terminal C has recently been renovated, complete with a Johnny Rockets and a Wolfgang Pucks.  “Sweet!” I hear you say.  But it turns out that a) Johnny Rockets was out of ice cream (REALLY???  They might as well be out of ground beef!) so no milk shakes.  And, just as the Red Sox-Yankees game was getting good (as in the Red Sox were really taking the lead), the bar we sat in that was showing the game called, “Last call!” at 9:25 pm and shut off the TVs, so we couldn’t finish watching the game.  Now I know Boston is pretty conservative when it comes to bar closings, and it *has* been a while since I’ve been out downtown, but a 10:00 pm closing seems a bit early, don’t you think?

So…still killing time in the airport.  I’ll let you know if we actually get to Buffalo or not.  I really hope so, because we are taking Buffalo Grandma to lunch tomorrow if we do.  🙂
