|Stuck in Seattle|

My flight from Seattle to Las Vegas to Phoenix to Tucson was cancelled for Monday. The next flight I can take on USAirways gets me home on 12/26. It was crazy trying to get another flight out. It's still snowing (see the picture taken from a second floor landing at Blessed Sacrament Priory) and Seattle's already had about 7-10" of snow, I'm guessing. Folks are saying they've never seen so much snow in Seattle before. All of the flights out of Seattle to warmer places were sold out. I even looked into flying into Edmonton, Canada tomorrow (where the HIGH will be -11 F!) That got sold out from under me. I know am scheduled to fly in a prop plane to Idaho Falls, ID to Salt Lake to Tucson. I leave a little later in the morning, so maybe the flights will be departing by then. I have about a two hour layover in Idaho Falls, so maybe I have a little leeway should my Seattle flight be delayed.
I'm just praying I don't spend several days in Idaho Falls.
Last year I was stuck in Colorado Springs in a blizzard 12/20-24. Still have Christmas shopping to do, too! Please pray for people who are stuck in airports, or whose vacation plans are being spoiled, or whose long-awaited trips home are being threatened.
