Because I'm her mom, and that's what moms do!
We don't stop worrying. Yes, I was worried that she was touring that area by herself, and I'm
very glad she wan't in Boston.
Still, last night was a little "window of opportunity" for her to get back to her home in suburban Boston - her friends there might have been
injured or affected by the lock-down; and overseas flights always make me nervous anyway.
I was watching her flight on flight-aware, where the little green plane moves along the flight path as they fly...the flight path was marked as direct
from Zurich to Boston - but the green plane instead went DUE SOUTH all the way to the Mediterranean, lost a bunch of altitude, slowed way down, and
then seemed to be erratic with it's 'Trail' - then it turned directly North and headed back up to the flight path. So yeah, I was worried about
the flight itself due to that unexplained and alarming "off path" thing - naturally I think "skyjacked?" or "mechanical failure?" when I see
But, she did make it back, her boyfriend was there to pick her up, and she got home safely. Actually, I feel like it was a small miracle that she was
OUT of Boston on Monday - she might well have attended the marathon - she's still exploring the city herself, and has only lived there since August.
