Sunday’s word of the day prompt from https://ragtagcommunity.wordpress.com/2022/10/23/rdp-sunday-flight-2/
‘Today’s flight to America has been cancelled due to bad weather,’ the woman on the speaker said. ‘There is snow on the runway, we will let you know of any further developments.’
It was true, for UK’s version of snow, it always stopped play. Schools, roads, and even airports were closed. When Amy came from, this was considered insignificant. She was looking forward to seeing her family again.
She didn’t much care for the weather here – she had been in England for two weeks. There wasn’t one day where it didn’t rain. Although it had been known to have rain, sunny weather and frost all in one day.
It was like an absent-minded grandmother, forgetting to turn off the heating.
‘Do you know if the flight will be rearranged?’ she asked the cashier.
‘Not sure, but we will put you up in a hotel while you wait.’
‘It is my anniversary, and I promised my husband I would be home today.’
‘This probably will be over this time tomorrow; we can never tell. The hotel is first class though, much better waiting there than here.’
It was true, she had never stayed in a first-class hotel before. She could take the night relaxing, eating out, and travel the next day instead. She typed in a text to her husband and wheeled her suitcase out of the airport.
