Feb 1 was my return to India from Chicago after completion of my project. Feb 1 weather prediction at Chicago was heavy snowstorm. Right at the time of starting from my home I could see this. The taxi got stuck in the deep snow and the neighbor helped to get the vehicle out of the mess. After ferrying through the snow covered roads reached airport at around 2 PM CST. I was little overweight in my luggage and hence had to pay a bit more for extra luggages. We boarded the aircraft and were served lunch. A few minutes later was the announcement that the flight is canceled and we would be accomodated in a airlines provided accomodation for a night because of heavy snow storm and low visibility.
That night we stayed in Holiday Inn. We got new friends — Singh, Arti and Krishna Kumar. It was Arti’s birthday too. It should have been a memorable birthday for her similar to the Payanam episode where the girl has her birthday amidst the hijacked drama of Chennai – Delhi flight. The next day morning we started to airport after the breakfast. Going through the TSA security checks we boarded the flight to India.
Once we reached New Delhi and having cleared the immigration there was another confusion because of two flights coming in at the same time. Fortunately figured out the flight to Mumbai and boarded the same.
