Girl stranded at London airport gets creative, finds love … (3 Photos)

For those of you who don't know, Europe is experiencing some of the worst winter weather its had in 25 years. The snow has left over a million people stranded at airports across Europe and England.

I posted the photo above in yesterday's 'Randomness' after which a Chivette named April, who happened to be stuck in London's Heathrow at the time, decided to get creative in theCHIVE comment section.

I must have been sent the following comment thread a hundred times yesterday but now we have an amazing ending to the story...

April sent me this photo this morning. Turns out Americans Richard (he goes by Rich) and April were supposed to be on the same flight, which ended up being canceled. Neither seemed to mind. They “hit it off immediately” and are currently in London having the time of their lives together. It’ll be a Merry Christmas after all.
