12F when we awoke can't imagine what 75F even feels like any more. Packed up the car and headed to the airport with our car and house sitter Miss Elizabeth in tow. Our flight was delayed slightly by de-icing however we were soon in the air and heading to warmer climates. Checked in at the hotel (bags all arrived!) ...
... for Tel Aviv on Sunday :) I found out yesterday I'll be living in an apartment with 10 other people. It's going to be insane and beautiful. My work is less than half a mile from my apartment, so I can walk or bike there in less then 10 minutes. I'm super relieved! But before that comes, I'm off to spend a couple days in the big city. Sending love and kisses to all of you. Know that I carry you with me where ever I go.

Another half hour later, they announced they would be putting us in a hotel and that the flight was delayed until 8:10 am. Double yay !

Up at 5:30, in the cab at 6:00, with the snow storm having no intention to stop whatsoever.
Do I tell the Starbucks story ? Oh yeah. ...
... which is what all of Detroit used to look like. The little hills were leveled as Detroit was developed which is what happens most places as development takes place.
Once again we had tour members who used to live in the areas we visited and could remember what it looked like in its better days. Several had fond memories of family visits to Belle Isle or a Sunday drive along the Grosse Pointe shore to see the mansions.
