DELAYED!!!!

I'm posting from the Manchester Airport! I got here at 4:45 for a 6:10 flight. I got to my gate and they announced there was a delay due to it being too cold. 5 Mins tops, needed to heat it up. Well the 5 mins turned into 20 and another announcement saying there was no water because the pipes froze overnight. Now another delay. OK so they then say we can fly with no coffee, tea, or bathrooms, it was only a 2.5 hour flight so no biggie we all just wanted to leave. Well, it is now 6:30 and I've got a 9:30 connection to make so I'm a bit worried, they say there are other options if we dont leave by 7. At 7 I stand in line to begin my new destination plans! I now get to sit in the airport until 11:25 and am changing planes in Philly instead of NC and getting into CA at 5:30 instead of 12!!! NICE half the day lost sitting in an airport! Whose idea was this anyway?
At least I met some nice people to be stranded with! Oh and get this, the woman next to me has the same exact hot pink and black suitcase as me, what are the odds of that! We are worried that she's going to end up with my 6 days of clothes and I'm going to end up with her 1 day of Birthing classes teaching equipment! LOL!
Anyone got anything more exciting to talk about than a 4 hour wait at the airport please post here! :) See ya later!

Air travel is a nightmare no matter how you slice it! At least you have your laptop to keep you company!

Oh man, that ROTS. It's 12:15 so I hope you're on a plane now and on your way.

Oh NO! That's terrible! And here I was at 12:00 yesterday thinking you were in the air and getting closer to CA. Sigh. I hope at least you're there now (almost 11:00 our time, Sunday).

Sorry you had to deal with airport delays. Sounds like you had good company while waiting, and your laptop too! Have a wonderful time Pam!
