July 1st, 2005, 10:00pm PST. We reached Portland airport to find out that there was a thunderstorm in New York area and because of the cascading effect of delayed flights our flight is going to be 2 hours late! So in effect we have reached here 4 hours early now! and have nothing else to do! Oh my god!
And there was no delay of any sort whatsoever anywhere on our way to PDX! No usual traffic jams on 26, no queue at the check-in, no line for security check nothing! Why don't we get this lucky when really need all that luck...
How are we going to kill all this time? And with a 4 year old chatterbox constantly buzzing around you can imagine.
But I just found out as I was settling into a long wait near the gate that PDX now has FREE Wi-Fi!! WOW! That's great! And that's where I'm writing this blog from. On Portland airport near gate E3! (10:30pm PST)
Enough of that.
We are on our way to New York(JFK) and then we'll visit my cousin in NJ for a couple of days and then set out for a road trip to Washington DC, Niagara Falls, Toronto, Albany NY and then back home (flying, not driving).
I'll keep posting to this blog as and when I get time and connectivity.
Hope this turns out to be just a delayed start and not a bad trip overall!
