Luck Couldn't Last Forever

We've been remarkably lucky this weekend. We've only been out the far edges of Hurricane Ike, so all we got was mostly high winds. But this morning the rain that has threatened all weekend finally arrived, and did so while we were out having breakfast. We huddled inside Cafe du Monde eating our last beignets until we could wait no longer, then headed out into what was at first light rain, but turned much heavier soon after.

I had not brought either a hat or an umbrella, and got pretty soaked. That was my last clean shirt, but fortunately with our late check-out, we had time for me to try and use the blow-dryer in the hotel room to sort of dry it out before we had to move out.

Northwest paged me to let me know that my flight is on time for this afternoon -- I think the equipment for our flight probably just took off from MSP about now -- and all looks good. The connection to SFO appears to be very full, though, so a bump is a possibility if my work can tolerate it. I could probably work over the weekend to make up the time if necessary.

I don't think either MSY or MSP airports have free wi-fi, so don't expect to hear from either Cheryl nor I until tomorrow.
