Wow. So what was supposed to be a pretty simple, two-leg flight, starting at 12:00 our time and landing 11:30pm there time ended up being a much crazier experience.
When attempting to land in Washington DC, the weather was too bad. So they had us in a “holding pattern” to wait out the storm… no go. Instead we were re-routed to Detroit. What the heck?!? Where we waited until 2am.
Then at 2am we re-loaded the initial plane and went to DC. Because of this, the place we rented the car wasn’t open until 5:30am. So, we took a shuttle from the airport around 4:30am and sat and waited downtown DC for our car until 5:30am.
Which was still a two hour drive to our hotel… thankfully Bill drove. So I did nap during that part. We arrived at our hotel at 8:30am…
Wow… what an experience.
