Well, with this Chicago white out and freezing rain and snow I was
almost stuck in California. My flight was only delayed but I didn’t
want my wife and boy driving in bad weather to the airport to pick me
up so I resolved to take a cab, which could have been over $100 with
the distance and conditions. Then my sister calls (before departure)
and her husband Keith is flying back from New York on business and
also facing delays, but has a car at O’Hare.
Well, as God would have it, we BOTH JUST LANDED at the same time! What
are odds of that at O’Hare and in these conditions?!? We are both now
just taxiing waiting for a gate to open, but I got a ride home! (Keith
and Melissa live four houses down from us)
Anyway, just had to share this little example of God’s provision
today. I might still be sitting on this runway for awhile, there is a
long line of planes waiting to deboard and the ones at the gates are
Life is an adventure!

UPDATE: Landed at 10pm, and sat on the runway until 1am! (three hours!) because the high winds were preventing any de-icing or take offs, so there were no gates. Keith got in an hour before me and was nice enough to wait for me. His tarmac wait was longer than his flight from New York, my flight was only 30 minutes longer than the wait to deplane. Whew!
