The blizzard on the east coast last weekend caused a lot of headaches for travelers. My flight back from Detroit to Boston on Sunday was canceled, luckily before I left for the airport. Delta automatically re-booked me for Tuesday morning, which was great until I realized they were sending me through Minneapolis and instead of an hour and 15-minute flight I'd be traveling all day. At least I wasn't stuck in some airport sleeping on the floor. I made it back -- and in style as they bumped me up to first class from Minneapolis. Meanwhile, I got to spend a couple more days with my father, which was nice. But I'm glad to be home.
