Denver... day 3 (home again home again)

There is a reason for delaying the post of day 3 from Denver... it was a LONG day, and not a great way to end a good little vacation.  Our plane was scheduled to leave at 7am... which means we were up at 4:30.  It had started snowing, and by the time we got on the plane, it had turned into a bit more than just snow (aka: blizzard).   After getting on the plane and sitting waiting to depart for hours, our flight was delayed, and delayed, and finally they informed us that we needed to get off the plane because our plane was heading to Detroit.  DETROIT???  What?  The weather allows a plane to leave to Detroit but not to Salt Lake??

Two hours of standing in line to find us another flight home, one (or ten) calls back to Utah to make arrangements for someone to cover us for the work day, and we finally ended up making it back around 4pm to Salt Lake.  

I think I am jinxed.  This is the 3rd time something like this has happened to us on our travels.  Sleeping in the New Jersey airport overnight was my favorite :)  Or maybe it is just that vacations have to end like this in order to REALLY REALLY want to "just be home".
