More Info: On board also was his wife, Theresa Blohowiak; his sister, Cyndie Hammond; and her husband, Jim. Jim Hammond, of Coeur d’Alene, is an Idaho state senator; Cyndie is regional director for the Coeur d’Alene campus of Lewis-Clark State College. The four family members said they survived reasonably well, having berths on an upper deck with balcony windows that provided fresh air.
Question: Have you ever been stranded somewhere while traveling? How did you cope?
Just got off the phone with Dr. Cyndie Hammond after she texted me about an hour ago. Seems Cyndie and Senator Jim Hammond have had quite an adventure this week as two of 4,500 passengers stranded aboard the Carnival Splendor. Cyndie tells me that they had about 12 hours of their cruise underway when the ship lost power about 200 miles south of San Diego on the way to the Mexican Rivera on Sunday. She and Jim were in a cab on the way to a hotel about noon when we spoke. The pair seemed giddy with delight to be on dry land, although Cyndie had to laugh about the traffic … “It’s Veterans Day in a military town and we’re stuck in a parade”/Kerri Thoreson, More Main Street.
