Flight Delays

Flight delays seem to jump on me like the plague this year.  Charlotte and I are heading to Tuscany for our vacation.  Everything
went well until we got to our first stop/lay-over in Atlanta.  Our flight to JFK was due to depart at 3:30.  Charlotte wanted to be the first on the plane so she could get her carry-on bag stowed, so we were in our seats before 3:00.  We sat there, at the gate, until 6:15!

It seemed there was severe weather in the New York area and all airports had shutdown.  We were due to catch a flight to Pisa at 9:15 from JFK, so still in Atlanta at 6:15 did not bode well for us.  Luckily, there was an Air France flight departing for Paris at 11:15, so we got off the Delta flight, ate dinner at Terminal E, and boarded the flight for Paris.

Currently, we are still in the Paris airport waiting for our flight to Pisa.  By my count, it has been 26 hours since we left our home in Middleburg, and we are not to our destination yet!  Oh, the joys of travel!
