Well, we're back home in Seattle. After successfully getting to the airport, we stood in line at the ticket counter, and just as it was our turn, all the rest of the day's flights were cancelled! We then took our long time at the counter as the line grew longer and longer. No announcement was made for those still waiting, but word of mouth was traveling down the line. We re-booked for the morning of Dec. 25th, the earliest opening! So our Colorado Christmas, should we eventually get there, will be shorter and sweeter. It has been snowing lightly all day now. We had some trouble getting a cab to take us back home, and had to lug the luggage the last few blocks, since the side streets are snow clogged. The Seahawks played in the snow and won! Sorry, Jets fans. We are regrouping. Our son is stuck here for now, and will try to get back to his place in the city tomorrow. I pulled some ground up horse clams out of the freezer that we stashed last summer from our catch on Useless Bay. I'm going to go make a big pot of clam chowder. Thanks for all of the good wishes. If those wishes had wings, we'd be with our grand kids. As it is, I'll be around to blog a few more days. Happy travels to you, and if you don't have to travel, good for you.
