We got up at 9am to finish packing and went for breakfast at Denny's. Our flight back to the UK was due to leave at 2.30pm and we planned to check-in at Sanford Airport around mid-day. But Denny's was very busy and we were late checking out of the hotel (11.15am) and then we got caught up in a huge traffic jam on the I4 due to an accident involving several cars. We eventually arrived at the check-in at 12.45pm - only to be told that the flight had been cancelled until tomorrow morning. Our crew had been grounded in a north American airport due to the severe weather that was still affecting most of the United States.
The travel company were good, arranging transport to a local hotel where we are to stay tonight and fly out tomorrow morning. But we waited ages for transport to the hotel, eventually arriving there at 5.30pm.
I tried to hire a car to go back to Cape Canaveral to see the launch of the satellite but there wasn't a single car to be had from any of the hire companies at the airport. So we finished up watching the take-off on a TV in our hotel room.
Our room is fine and we had a nice dinner. We have a very early rise tomorrow morning at get a flight out of Florida at 7.30am.
