I took this picture yesterday in between pacing around my apartment and checking my flight status every two seconds. Very few planes made it out of PDX in the last 2-3 days but I hit the jackpot and got out last night around 1:30 am.
Of course, I missed my connection in Newark so now I'm on stand-by on a 3 pm flight to Grand Rapids. If I can't get on that flight, I'm most likely stuck in Newark overnight. I have a seat on a 6:30 flight to Detroit (which is a miracle in itself, thanks to the very nice continental agent in PDX). So I will make it home for Xmas!!
