We're home! After spending a lot of the time on the phone to Delta we got booked on a late flight to from JFK to SLC on Wednesday. After we were booked on the flight we were woken up several times during the middle of the night by automated phone calls during the middle of the night that told us that our flight was cancelled.
Sadly, we missed Halloween with the kids but yesterday I put them in their costumes and took their picture. I also walked them across the street to an understanding friend's house so I could hear Mimi chirp "thickoreat!" and "dank-you!" in person. SO cute.
I think it's safe to say that N and I will never forget this trip to New York. We crammed a lot of fun into the days before Sandy hit and being there during/after the storm was surreal.
We were really lucky that our hotel never lost power or even internet service. The very next block was completely dark for days (and may still be).
This was my first visit to New York and even with all the craziness of Sandy I fell in love with the city. It's such a magnificent place. I'm hoping and praying that the lights will come back on soon and that those affected will be comforted.
