Well, we're stuck in Nanchang for who knows how long! The news said it's the worst weather in 50 years! Think of it like this...Orlando (Nanchang) has ice storm and you can't get to Miami(Guangzhou). The flight originally was only one hour, but the airport is closed. So we were going to take a 12-hour overnight train ride this evening, but as of this morning, the train station is now closed. Apparently, the Chinese government wants to halt all passenger trains so that the tracks can be used for supplies, food, etc. Our guide is trying to get a bus for us, but the bus is only allowed to travel to the border of the province and not into the neighboring province where we need to be. We were just informed that we will be traveling by bus. The bus ride is 20 hours. The roads are snowy in some parts, but the sun has come out. We're all disappointed. Please pray for our safety and sanity!
