Will we be home for Christmas?

December 20, 2010

It’s been some time since the Eurobites monster blog has been updated. Don’t worry… we have a good reason. It’s a long story, and frankly, I don’t have the energy to write it all down. The past 72 hours have been filled with missed flights, canceled flights and “what the hell happen to that flight?” flights. So I am going to fill you in with the latest news.

This weekend, the UK experienced the largest snow storm in the past 20 years. The snow triggered huge disruptions that are still causing delayed and canceled flights. So far there have been three planes that were suppose to take us home… we haven’t gotten on any of them. So now Eric and I currently have a flight scheduled to leave early Wednesday morning to Chicago. After Colin’s flight was canceled for tomorrow, he booked a new flight to get him home on December 24. That is cutting it dangerously close to Christmas. We spent Saturday night trying to sleep at the airport, in hopes that we would be able to talk to a representative, but no such luck. Below are some pictures from inside the airport. Walking through I kept having flashbacks to Titanic as they were handing out life vest. Just take out the string quartet and drop in some horrible Christmas music. Check out the pictures below to see the madness.

So we are praying that it clears up so we can be home with our families for the holidays. For the most up to date information on our travels, make sure to follow our Twitter feeds. We want to say thank you for everyone who has been sending their love and support. It warms our hearts here in the cold London air to know we are in your thoughts.

    Sounds like a scene from Home Alone.
