JFK Blogging

Not the president, the airport.

The blizzard closed Logan airport - well, it was the 50 knot wind gusts, which are unhealthy for children and other living things if they're in airplanes trying to land.

So #1 Son and I drove from Boston to JFK where her flight was diverted. Five and a half hours of I-95 in a blizzard, and we're on our way back. Blogging is (ahem) expected to be light.

UPDATE 22 December 2008 01:00: Back now. Maybe yesterday I was only 75% cowboy, but today I'll take the full measure, thank you very much. It's not about how you ride a horse, it's about doing what needs doing. Even if it's fetching your lovely bride from a distant airport and then snow blowing the driveway so she can get in.

There's a certain satisfaction at doing what your loved ones need, when they really need it.

You drove to NY in this weather to fetch your bride?

Brother, you are all cowboy in my book.

I must be - I feel like I got throwed off a horse.
