For my birthday I decided we should visit family on the east coast. We set out on October 17th and flew into Philadelphia. We spent several days seeing Christopher and other family. Christopher is presently in a play called “Sacred Cows make the best Hamburgers”, based on some of Mark Twain’s writing. During that time we got to see Moriah, our lovely daughter-in-law, her mother Lisa Mason (visiting from Ohio) and Cynthia and Randy O’Neill (Bob’s sister and bro-in-law). We then hit the road on 10/23 for a 12 hour drive to visit my brother and his family. Had a great time hiking through his beautiful acreage in the mountains of North Carolina. On the 26th we set out to see Bob’s brother Wayne,in Ithaca NY. We planned to stay there until the 29th, stay with Cynthia and Randy in NJ, and then fly from Philadelphia back home on 10/31 (today). We were in the middle of our 14 hour drive between Spruce Pine, NC and Ithaca, NY when we started hearing about Sandy. We called Wayne, who happens to be a meteorologist and, for the first time, I heard him use the term “perfect storm”. He told us, if we could get a flight home, do it. It cost us $$$ as the airlines were still “monitoring the storm”. When we realize what our last few days, and possibly more days in the future, would have been had we not flown out, money means nothing and we are forever in Wayne’s debt.
