The hubs and I originally planned a short holiday to Miami from Oct. 22nd-25th. Unfortunately, Hurricane Wilma hit and created a ruckus in Miami and its surrounding areas. Fortunately, Continental Airlines is letting passengers reschedule flights without penalty. So we rescheduled our trip for this coming weekend: Oct. 29 to Nov. 1st.
Well it looks like it won't be happening. Miami is still affected and some areas still don't have power or water. In fact, the Fort Lauderdale Airport (where we were going to fly in) just re-opened today. My parents are pretty anxious about the state of our condo down there. According to the news, a lot of the high-rise condominiums were damaged by the wind. Many buildings lost their windows and are full of debris. My parents have been trying to contact the condo association for a week now, to no avail. The phones there are either busy or just keep on ringing. We don't even know if there's water or power in our building. As much as we'd like to check on the state of our condo, we don't even know if we'll have a safe place to stay! On the bright side, at least no one we know got hurt and all we're worrying about is property damage! So I'm in no way complaining...I know a lot of people have it much worse. I think it's so sad how so many people are affected by these recent natural disasters. My thoughts and prayers go out to them.
So for now, our trip to Miami is postponed. Looks like I'll be around to hand out Halloween candy after all! Sweet! I love Halloween!
