Emergency Landing

Whoa, what an arm-rest gripper today was! En route from Denver to New Jersey, our airplane pilot told us that the electric system was not functioning (and I later learned this directly affects hydraulics) so we made an emergency landing in my hometown of Chicago. Never been so psyched to land there, and believe me, I'm usually happy as hell to be home. After landing, our airplane was chased down the runway by about 10 different fire trucks. Exhilarating!

But we made it to New Jersey, where my mother-in-law is going through another surgery because of her cancer. Please send your happy thoughts and well wishes her way...
