TRIP TO WEST CARRIBEAN ISLANDS
01/09/04 – 9:30PM
We finally left Rochester! I had a few little emergencies to take
care of this morning / afternoon, as well as some last-minute shopping
to pick up various things for the trip. Mom started feeling
not-so-good around dinner time, and had to make several trips to the
restroom. But after some food and prayer, we left for Buffalo.
En route, we saw an interesting phenomenon. It looked like there
were beams of light aimed straight up from the ground. We saw
more of these around the Batavia area, but also saw them even with
oncoming traffic headlights at times. Must be something that
happens when the temperature is real cold, and perhaps some
humidity. Closer to Buffalo, the “beams” did not appear.

After a couple pit stops, we arrived at the Days Inn hotel, right
across from the Buffalo airport. Checked in, and went up to our
3rd floor room. I snagged a luggage cart to transport our 180lbs
of luggage to our room. (Yes, 180lbs sounds like a lot, but
believe it or not, we have room to take back more stuff with us without
exceeding the airline limits… hopefully!) Our room was pretty
cold when we arrived – I’d guess in the high 50s. The bathroom
floor was freezing! The AC did heat a little, but it took a while
before it was comfortable. Got to bed a little after midnight.
