Got son home from Miami today, what fun
Son on cruise in Bahamas, supposed to be back in Miami port at 8am, USAir flight to philly at 2 arrive philly 5. I am up at 6 on a whim decided to check on flight, well it was cancelled. I go into panic mode son needs to be home to plow snow. Well then I check the web cam on the ship and it is in port early, so far so good. Call sons cell, no answer call 5 more times no answer. There is a 7:40 and an 8:15 on American to philly. Well now it is 7am still cant get son. Get the bright idea to call cruise line, they gave me a number to call for shore to ship, 8 bucks a minute. Anyway got the ship, got my sons room, woke him up. Turns out his cell would not work in the ship too much metal. Anyhow got him moving to the airport, he did not make the 8:15 to Philly but told him to get on an American flight to Newark NJ. He arrived in Newark on time,his brother had to go get him,90 mile drive.
Got home at 3, and now ready to plow.
USAIR went over the top,cancelled flights way too early, not even snowing here yet.
The internet is great,made it easy to check flights and find phone numbers,and even ships. If I had not done this he might have been stuck
in Miami for 2 days, who knows.
