29 / The Summer of Disruption
I woke up early on the Tuesday. Quickly checked the news to see where Hurricane Ian was at? The airport released a statement that they were shutting down and cancelling all flights after 16:30. Yasmine’s flight was due for take off at 12:30.

4 hours.

After waiting four months, four hours was all that separated her from being stranded even longer. What if the flight was delayed? What if the airline decided not to fly that day? Four hours was our window of error.

I took a deep breathe.

I could only think of the ending of the movie ‘Argo’. Her plane took off. She had finally made it out and was en route to Toronto.
