On My Way

I’m sitting in the Syracuse airport waiting to get on the plane to JFK and thence to Anchorage,Taipei, and then Hanoi on Christmas day. It’s snowing, but they are keeping the runways clear and the flights are running on time or just a little late, so I don’t have the sense that I’m going to be stranded.
