Day 8: Charleston

Today we got all packed up ready to head home on our flight at 4:30 p.m. We ate brunch at IHOP.
While we were leaving IHOP it started raining and we decided to go to the outlets again to kill some time before our flight. We shopped for about an hour and decided we had better get to the airport (they were closing the outlets at 2:00 p.m. due to the storm). Once we got there we found out that our flight to Memphis had been CANCELLED (along with all the other flights for the day)! They did not want to fly any planes to Charleston with Tropical Storm Hanna hitting the Carolina coast. Ally was soooo upset because we were supposed to go to her best friend Isabella's birthday party tonight. She just couldn't understand why we couldn't go home. So we drove right back to our hotel to get a room for yet another night. We decided to hang out in our room for the afternoon because we weren't sure how bad it was going to get.

Thankfully the Chili's across from the hotel was open for dinner. We all got soaked going in and out of the restaurant. It was pouring rain but the wind was not blowing that hard at all. We were bummed that we weren't getting to go home but we made the best of it.
