Made it to Virginia ... but only after a few adventures. My original flight was from Salt Lake City, connecting in Houston, then to Richmond. However, when I got to Houston I discovered that my second leg had been canceled – bad weather (icy rain) in Richmond. The airline (United) rescheduled me on a new flight connecting through Chicago. Dang! Next thing you know, I'm on the way to Chi-town, arriving right at sunset (photo out the window at right). I had a very short layover there (just 15 minutes), but fortunately the Richmond flight left from a gate almost adjacent to the one my Houston flight arrived at, so there was no problem making it. I arrived in Richmond at about 9:30 pm, and was at my mom's house before 11 pm.
