The travel situation isn’t any clearer.  The reports coming out over here are conflicting.  My gut feeling is that it will be later on in the week before I can fly home.  I think I can extend my stay here for a few extra days without too much trouble.  I am surely ready to be home, but can use the time well.  The folks here told me they wouldn’t pray for the ashes to clear so I could leave.  I thanked them- sort of.
