19: Wwewe | We left Miami Thursday, January 20, in the afternoon, driving to the Ft. Lauderdale airport. Our flight arrived at 10:50 p.m. and Becky was there to meet us. She drove us back to her home in Danbury, CT. It was snowing. We spent Friday seeing some of the local spots near Danbury. Saturday, Carleton drove us to the train and we spent the day in NY. Carleton picked us up late that night from the train. Sunday afternoon Becky drove us in to the city and we spent the afternoon seeing the sights. Our flight home was to leave at 7:30 on Monday, January 24, which meant we needed to leave at 5 a.m. from Becky's house. As our flight was taking off, they aborted the take-off. Some caution light came on. After an hour in the plane, they canceled the flight, the next flight out was not until 4:30 in the afternoon, so we spent the day in the airport. We finally made it home that evening.
