'St.' was all the difference between sun and snow

A Russian couple finally made it to Florida for Christmas, but not before flying an extra 3,000 miles because someone in Moscow left the ''St.'' off St. Petersburg.

A mixup had delayed the arrival of Mr. and Mrs. M. Lewenetz until Christmas Eve. He said the couple boarded their plane in Moscow Dec. 22, but instead of ending up in St. Petersburg Dec. 23, they found themselves in Petersburg, Alaska , a fishing village 100 miles south of Juneau.

An official in Moscow had left the ''St.'' off St. Petersburg when he filled out their plane tickets.
