Trip Report Airplanes, tropical storms and a celebrity

Jump to last reply

finally caught up and can do a quick trip report.

I was in Provo during Tropical Storm (hurricane Isaac) where they were calling for 90% chance of rain.

Flew AA through Miami. Weather was gorgeous, but it was hazy from "Sahara Dust", very common this time of year.

Saw some good friends.

I knew Isaac was suppose to hit Miami, my connection, during the weekend, and I was suppose to work all week, so I spent half of the week trying to leave early. Finally AA closed the airport but couldn't put me on a plane until 4 days after I was suppose to be home.

what's a girl to do? I booked a 1 way to NY, spent the night, flew straight to Va early morning, went straight to work.

So being "forced" to spend night in NY, I went to Times Square. The contrast of having a gorgeous beach to myself followed by a packed NY street was insane! I'm walking around about 9:30 at night and ran into:

Ricky Martin!

So back to Provo, weather was unreal. 2 days of sunny until noonish, followed by dark clouds. 1 complete washout day. One night of howling winds. right after Isaac, POSTCARD weather.

The Sahara Dust was gone. The sky a crystal blue. Water sparkling clear and bright.

I truly enjoyed my extra perfect days there!

Here was the weird thing. Everybody with an upcoming storm left the island. I had perfect days all to myself, felt like it all belonged to me. ;-) it's all mine!

Many restaurants were shutting down for the season, but ate at

Caicos Cafe, Thai Orchid, Tiki Hut, Baci, Mango Reef, Bay Bistro.

I've only been back for a week but need to go back now, I'm aching!
