I just got back from my trip to New York, it was supposed to be a Thursday to Sunday type of trip…. it got pushed to Monday though due to Hurricane Irene which was moving up the coast. Due to this my flight and trip were changed a bit.
While it wasn’t a total loss it still screwed things up including changing my flight a day later than it should have been. It sucked that the city was about 98% shutdown so it left little to do besides sit in my hotel room and drink away the storm outside my window that was starting to take place. With the lack of “real” destruction that Irene caused I think the city of New York will be somewhat happy that it has earned them a visit again so that I can redo it. It was really awesome to finally meet the guy in charge, coworker, and business partner. It’s really strange to work with people and yet never have met them in person, so it was cool to do so finally.
Overall it was a pretty rad trip hurricane aside, but after about 5 days of living in a hotel, I am happy to be heading back on a flight that actually wasn’t delayed nearly as bad as I thought I was going to be. I am looking forward to the next time I get to hit up NYC. The next time should allow for some exciting photos to be taken rather than the ones I came back with.
