We flew home from JFK yesterday evening after a super, long weekend son fix. New York and much of the eastern seaboard was experiencing a nor'easter. Apparently, JFK was a mess and over 500 flights were grounded. Our flight was delayed only a couple of hours while we waited for our cabin crew to get in from Chicago. I thought I'd be posting some scarily exciting (with a happy ending) flight details but fortunately our JetBlue flight to Long Beach, while initially pretty bumpy, was uneventful. The car journey from Brooklyn to JFK was pretty thrilling, though, what with all the water-filled potholes and malfunctioning traffic lights, hydroplaning and general lack of visibility and pissedoffedness of the other motorists (we took Atlantic not the freeways) but our driver got us there more quickly than ever before...door to door in 45 minutes. No idea how. Not complaining.

My New York story will follow, but it basically involves overeating of excellent food, walking so much and so fast (just to keep up with son) that shinsplits are sure to follow and hours of good conversation. After climbing in and our of multiple subway stations, I deserve no weight gain. I haven't stepped on the scale quite yet.

Sounds like an adventure. Hopfully you made it to one of my favorite places, China Town. I love that place!

Glad you made it home okay.
