Bad Weather = Cancelled Flights

Due to Blizzard Warnings, wild winds and snow all United flights out of Peoria today are cancelled.

Argg this is exactly what I didn’t want to happen on the return trip flights. I’m rescheduled for flights tomorrow but am hoping to getting earlier flights, otherwise all of Monday will be lost.

Orbitz for Business has the worst hold “music”, I hesitate to call it hold music, as it’s just silence, with every 20 seconds a computerised voice telling you that your still on hold, and thanking you for holding, and asking you remain on the line, and that Orbitz values my customer ship, and lots more brown noising noises. Just play some tacky music, and stop talking, or hire more phone call workers.

Anyway, no earlier flights so I’m just missing the first of three days…

Well at least that saves one day of small talk about the weather, etc. ;-)

So it’s not just the UK that grinds to a halt after a bit of snow eh? ;-)

Hope all is going well with your American Adventure.

Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year to you and yours old bean!

Well, it was 50mph winds and snow. Thus impossible to keep roads/runway clear, as it just drifted back.

That photo shows a 40cm snow drift by our sliding door.

Also it was -1F today in Peoria, so it’s actaully really cold. Jersey City was a lot warmer.

Cheers for the well wishes, and I hope for cheer and happiness in your neck of the woods also.
