My daugher T was scheduled to go to Dominica for ten days to do field work with her tropical ecology class. They were scheduled to leave Syracuse early Thursday morning to fly to Newark, the first of four legs to get them to the island. Because of the storm hitting the coast, the flight was cancelled Wednesday evening. The professors told them to stay tuned and the travel agents went to work to try to rebook. Unfortunately, the earliest that they could re-book the group was Wednesday, so the trip had to be cancelled. It was a major bummer, given that they spent the first half of the semester learning about the ecology there and prepping for the trip, including things like getting immunized for typhoid fever.
The silver lining for us is that T is now home for spring break. It’s nice for us and for her grandparents, who have been battling various maladies this winter.
And we are sure that T won’t contract typhus…

Poor T, but there is a silver lining as you said — home for break with the grandparents, and no chance of becoming Typhoid T… 🙂
And probably more sleep than she would have gotten at the field research station…

A silver lining in every cloud, eh? 🙂
Of course, the clouds here are a lot colder than the ones in Dominica!
Haha! Don’t I know it. 🙂
