I awake this morning in Utica!
Not bad. The sun is shining. The snow is gone. Time to do yardwork. Not me, but someone.
The temperature last night when I landed was 50 degrees. Not bad!
A week ago there were tons of snow and it was freezing!
What a difference a week makes!
The plane trip back was uneventful. Except that my first flight out of Key West was an hour late.That hour caused me to miss my Tampa cponnection to Cleveland. So I had a 4 hour layover in Tampa and arrived in Syracuse 3 hours later than planned.
The airports were not crowded. More of a sign that the vacationing season in South Florida is over. The recession might be impacting, but it was hard to tell.
The planes of course were jam packed. The airlines know how to operate in that regard. Fewer flights fill the seats!
The price was higher! A reflection of gasoline prices! I had to pay $1,000 for a round trip ticket and I made my reservation 3 weeks ago. A disgrace!
I am pleased the sun is shining here. It makes me feel alive! The gray of the winter here in the north country can be very depressing!
