"I'll be home for Christmas. You can count on me."

Since home is Tucson, there won't be snow, and mistletoe is pretty much wasted on priests. There won't be presents under the Dominican Christmas tree. I think everyone wanted gift cards.

For the first time in three years, it appears I'll be home for Christmas without weather-related problems. Two years ago it was a blizzard in Colorado that delayed my arrival in Tucson by four days (I made it home on Christmas Eve). Last year, it was a freak snowstorm in Seattle. I made it out at on a fluke. Fr. Daniel Syverstad, OP, the pastor of our parish there, was trying to get me out on a flight when a seat opened up on a direct flight from Seattle to Tucson while he was talking to the booking agent. I was booked on a different flight with a connection that ended up being cancelled.

The Colorado Springs airport is pretty busy this morning with lots of people heading out to visit families, from the looks of it.cnChristmas carols are playing softly in the background, and I should be home by noon to be with my Dominican family and eight of my nine family members (that includes my niece and three nephews - I have a small family!)

I hope all your Christmas travels and gatherings are blessed.

Customer Service will commonly offer travel vouchers of $100 or more off future Amtrak travel to inconvenienced passengers. This is true for all classes of service. If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.
