Winter Travel Blues

I created a little mojo bag to take with me on my trip to Newfoundland in order to keep travel woes to a minimum.  It worked great on the way over but seems to have worn out before my return flight when bad luck took over with a vengence! Halifax was being battered by its first big storm of the winter and my flight was diverted to Toronto.  After a 45 min wait on baggage, a 30 min wait to get a new flight for the next morning and a 1 1/2 hour wait (in the freezing cold!) for a shuttle, I finally made it to the hotel.  A short time later I met some of the people from my flight at the resteraunt for dinner and an hour and 15 mins later we STILL hadn't gotten any food!  A 4:30 rise saw me to the airport for 5:15, then check in, security and on to the plane.  Where we sat, next to the terminal for an hour to wait for catering.  Catering, for a 2 hour flight!  When I finally made it back to Halifax I discovered that Fiance had taken his car to pick me up instead of his own and, just when I thought my bad luck was over, we break down.   

I really hope the rest of 2010 is nothing like its beginning!
