Abra Cadabra! Magically Missing The Big Storm!

Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

We had a trip scheduled to Denver to be with our family this Sunday.  Prior to taking off,  our family and friends were sending us texts and weather reports of the big storm. We had also scheduled several business appointments for Monday.  


Ron had promised our grand nieces and nephews (all 5 of them) a magic show.  It is one of his hidden talents.  There was no way, we were going to disappoint the little ones who had set us a special table and stage.  He spent Sunday afternoon teaching the little ones several tricks to perform for the adults.  The show was wonderful, and the kids were delighted.


We managed to make the snowy drive  to our friends' home.  Monday morning it was still snowing as we made our way to our appointment nearby.  Our friends invited us to stay another night as they were sure our flight would be canceled.


We made it to the second appointment, and the snow was falling even harder by the time we had lunch.  We decided to head to the airport. We were told at the gate, we were told the plane would be taking off on time, and other planes were landing after some 600 flights had been previously canceled.


As we waited, for our flight to arrive, we noticed the snowplows hard at work on the tarmac, clearing it for the arrival of our plane.  The teamwork of tboth Southwest and the airport workers was amazing, and inspiring.


This morning we received a picture of my sister-in-law's backyard.  The email read, "My backyard...sorry you didn't stay over."


It is good to be home.  We landed on time!  It was a great trip full of magic and teamwork.  We wish you all a magical week.

Good morning A & R. I've gotten caught in a couple of bad snow storms when traveling, not always fun, but an adventure for sure.

What an exciting story with a very happy ending! Who knew Ron as a magician too! I'm glad you kept your commitment and the little ones were not disappointed. And so thankful you escaped the winter blast of bad weather and snow! 

Something tells me you would do anything in your power to magically appear for family and friends!

"Things are always working out for me"--seems that that bumper sticker is so fitting for you two! And who knew that Ron did magic? How cool is THAT?? And teaching the kids so that they could do it, too...I LOVE big kids! 

YOU have a magical day, my sweet friends!

Patricia Feager, MBA, GRI, Cert Negotiations Expert, Military Relo Prof We had booked the trip at the beginning of the month, and everyone was excited about it.  One of the little ones was sick, so his Dad rigged the iPad Pro via skype so that he could watch the show.  We are mailing a couple of magic tricks to learn, as he did not get his very own, as the rest of the kids did.

Call 631-805-4400 (c) funny enough, Ron had forgotten he did magic shows for his niece and nephew as they were growing up, and this was a sweet continuation of a family tradition...Ron even knows how to pull rabbits out of a hot...The parents warned him, NO RABBITS.  A

Dianne Goode no videos available.  What is neat about our family is other than the Skype connection so that one of the little ones could see the show, he was sick, there are no gadgets around during family time.  TV watching is minimal, it is more about being together face to face.  A

Thanks for sharing your snowy experience. We still have piles of snow in Maryland but are having a lot of rain that will help wash it away and create flood problems.

We dodged the same storm bullet last year. It's amazing how much snow can fall in a Colorado winter storm. The magic show sounds so cool. What a fun thing to do.
