Back in Toronto

I arrived back in Toronto around 3:30PM today. We were supposed to arrive last night at 10:30PM. We ended up spending the night in Chicago. We also had bad luck on the way to Puerto Rico as well; we sat at the Chicago airport for 13 hours due to airplane mechanical problems. So we only ...
