STUCK IN AMERICA

Argh! After nearly a month in Vegas, I am now stuck in Minnesota after my flight was cancelled due to 'stormy weather'. We were forced to land in somewhere called Fargo, North Dakota, where we spent a miserable 90 minutes (they said 20!) in the plane doing nothing. When we did eventually arrive in Minnesota, the next flight to Gatwick wasn't scheduled till 7pm the next day - around 20 hours away.

At this point in time, I am in a Hotel called La Quinta in Minnesota with no clothes or toiletries of my own and waiting for 7pm to arrive. They wouldn't let us collect our baggage and all they could muster in compensation was a $10 food discount. All hotel and taxi charges had to be covered by ourselves.

The company is Northwest by the way - good film selection, but not the most accommodating when things go tits up. They just drop you off and basically say "unlucky, bye".
