Pillow, blanket, and fuzzy socks in hand we boarded the Abbott bus at 1 a.m. Friday night for the trip to New York City. This wasn't our first trip to the Big Apple, but it turns out it was our first trip to the city when there was a terrorist walking around planting bombs all around us! We had come through the Chelsea area not long before the bomb exploded and we were having dinner blocks away when the bomb went off. Becky, Phil, and Sue heard the explosion! I knew nothing of all the excitement until my friend, Janette, texted me to see if we were ok and then the texts and phone calls started coming from my family and friends. I pulled up the news and started to get a little anxious about what was going on! The sounds of sirens were all around us as we boarded the bus for our trip back. I am so thankful everyone stayed safe and we made it out of the city safely!
