Given the weather issues around the world, we made the right choice for vacation. We had considered, but later dropped, plans to go to Australia, Phuket (near the epicenter of the tsunami), New Orleans and New York. For some of those places, we’d actually have been in peril. Others, we’d just be flying home without our luggage. Sometimes, it pays just to be lucky. Hopefully, we'll have no weather issues for our planned trip in '05 to Vietnam.
