My grandfather passed away on December 26 and this coming Tuesday, January 07, is going to be his funeral. Sadly, due to the “polar vortex” blizzard that is dumping at least 2 feet of snow on Michigan right now, all flights to California in the entire Midwest have been cancelled. There is no way I can get to the funeral on time. This is terrible, but the only silver lining to this story is that at least my mom caught one of the last flights to LA right before the snow started. It would have devastated her not to be at her father’s side this Tuesday.
