I woke up about seven o’clock this morning and I was actually in my own bed! We arrived home last night after 1:00 AM. I’m not sure of the exact time.
and in Chicago, with Pam and Gene. We even had a few sightings of Matthew!
We flew from Columbia, S Carolina to Chicago on Monday. It was cloudy most of the way but of course we were above the clouds. I missed what would have been a great photo op! We were over Chicago, the clouds parted in a huge circle, I looked down at the tops of all the sky scrapers! What a scene! I wasn’t expecting it and I didn’t have my camera handy. Oh, what a picture that would have been!
We took the train home from Chicago last
We did have one very pleasant experience! A person saw our confused looks as we stood not knowing which gate was ours. She offered to help us and said she wasn’t a worker there but felt we needed help. She came to our rescue twice and admitted she had once needed help and someone helped her so now she was paying back by helping us!
I goofed in getting our seats so we had to ride backwards all the way. There were some seats facing forward but the train was full so we couldn’t just change seats.
I love children but…a little girl about four years old drove us crazy almost the whole way! She was obnoxious and wanted everybody’s attention! They got off in Lansing and I was sooooo glad!
We had about a two hour delay while we were in Indiana! A train ahead of us had a problem and was part way on our track! They had to fix that train so we could move forward! We didn’t even have a nice scene to look at out our window!
This tree was the main subject! The white lines are reflections of lights inside the train!
We finally arrived in Flint and there sat our Buick Rendezvous just waiting so patiently for us! She drove us home and we fell into our own bed! Wonderful!
