We are in Palm Springs, Calif., for Thomas and Hannah’s wedding! The highs are upper 90s, lows are in the 60s—a HUGE change from what we left on the East Coast. It took us 16 hours door to door to get here, though.
Our flight was 830am, so we got a car at 530am to beat any a.m. rush hour traffic. The flight left on time, but almost immediately there was a call over the PA system for a doctor or nurse. It seemed like someone in first class had had a heart attack. We could see him laid out on the floor getting chest compressions and made an emergency landing in Buffalo, N.Y. (where it was snow flurrying instead of the steady rain we had at home). We were delayed about an hour and a half there, and fortunately our electronics all survived battery-wise… husband was smart to bring extra chargers. Unfortunately we are not positive the rather young fellow made it.
Then the drive to Palm Springs even at 230pm was insane traffic-wise. it took four hours! Normally two. The kids napped a tiny bit. But the house is great, it is very warm (99 expected today!) and we made it in time to get to the welcome soiree:
(We missed rehearsal but I think Tashi will be okay walking down an aisle.) Saw sister, brother, and Amrish; Googoo and Larry (they gave us hongbao—Tashi managed a xie xie!); and of course the bride and groom. The kids were pretty zonked and hunted for four-leaf clovers and then ran around like lunatics before we Uber’d it back home.
More photos of the house to come—it’s totally mid-century.
We all went to bed before 10pm last night—that is, 1am ET—but slept in till after 6am, which was an accomplishment! View on morning run:
