A couple, friends of ours, were graciously enough to feed me two hot meals and asked me to stay with them, one night. I was kind of feeling of not bothering them too much. So decided to stay in my own place. I had two dawn blankets on top of me, a form blanket underneath me. It was very warm indeed in a 41 F environment. Of course, before reaching home to bed, I went to a nearby Safeway first to use their rest room.
Next morning (Saturday, 12/6), when I woke up around 4:00 AM, it was very, very cold and I rushed to Portland Airport (PDX) without any delay. At least, it was warm there and equipped with many rest rooms. Boy, was I glad when I was there after returning my rental car. This airport at that moment, was the best airport that I have visited – nice, warm and with hot water.
I imagine that there was something wrong with me NOW because when I was a kid – no heat, no hot water year long. Dawn blankets? Forget it. Well, while staying in bed, I did feel the night was just windy, damp and cold. On top of that, I did feel lonesome 🙂 and almost called Rena (too bed her time would pass midnight, swapping geographical locations?).
Btw, in my outbound flight, I almost collect $500.00 for voluntarily yielding my seat for the next flight. Finally the airlines thought I wasn’t that overweight. They could take one more passenger. In inbound flight, I turned down an offer of $300 taking the next day flight.
Also, I liked to write this blog in my house but my fingers were too numb to type.
Next year in January, I will take the same journey. Hopefully, it will be warmer with clear sky.
