Florida... Dream Vacation??

We've bought, packed, tanned, planned, hoped, and waited... and now it's here. We leave tomorrow. Well, we're SUPPOSED to leave tomorrow! As I write, the snow is whirling around and continues to grace us with it's presence. Fargo is under a state of emergency due to flooding, and the highways from here to Minneapolis are shut down in a number of places. We decided to fly out of Minneapolis to save some major mulah, and didn't think 8 hours of driving was that bad. Now I am totally regretting that decision. Not the saving money part, but the driving part. I have no idea how we're getting down there. I guess head East until things start clearing up, then turn South and hope we're near the airport! Thankfully Jon is taking care of the getting-there-part. I actually stopped packing today because I honestly didn't see how this vacation thing would work. But Jon called within a few minutes of that, and was full of optimism. I am so glad that he sees the positive in every situation!!!
So... pray for us if you remember. We're heading out tomorrow at 2 pm,and our flight leaves Saturday morning. Florida will be a very very welcome sight...


  1. Well, I'll be praying for you. I don't like winter storms but married someone who gets a kick out of snowdrifts in his way. Good thing, eh? Otherwise we'd never get out! I hope your vacation is warm, sunny, & that you bring some of that weather back with you!!!

  2. Have a wonderful wonderful wonderful trip!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Who knew when you bought your tickets that the Red River would flood so bad. You'll make it but it may take you a little bit longer to get to the airport. You'll see some new country that's for sure.

    Have a great vacation. I'm envious!
