So, the Sheraton was ok... not flashy.. kinda old.. but clean and close. I suppose that is all you need when you get stranded.
I tried to get good sleep but ended up waking up around 2:30. wide awake!
so, with about 4 hours sleep under my belt, I am sitting in Terminal A Gate 17 in Newark and wondering if they are going to cancel my flight to Chicago. Thats right... Chicago! I have to fly from NJ to Chicago, and then Chicago to Greensboro. The other option was to fly from Newark to Charlotte, 70 miles from home, then hop on a plane from Charlotte to Washington DC, then from DC to Greensboro. I said no thanks.

The 6:00 am flight to Chicago has already been canceled, so I am keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for the best. But it is Newark after all.. and United on top of that.. so all bets are off.
There were so many flights canceled last night, that when I came into the airport this morning, there were people sleeping all over the place.. floors, tables. It was crazy, and I am glad I got a hotel while the getting was good.

I am feeling ok right now... but the Chinese Jet Lagg has been a formidable force to reckon with and I am not sure when it will let me be!

I have yet to sleep at an airport. . . but I am pretty confident it is only a matter of time.
