The California vacation planned by former President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama got off to a bumpy start – stormy weather forced their Palm Springs-bound plane to land at March Air Reserve Base in Riverside on Friday night.

The Obamas' plane flew over Palm Springs International Airport twice and circled the area for more than 40 minutes because of the bad weather, USA Today reported, citing air traffic control transmissions.

On the ground, a motorcade of more than a dozen SUVs and minivans along with Palm Springs Police Department vehicles had all lined up on the airport tarmac in preparation for the Obamas' arrival, USA Today reported.

Instead, however, the plane was diverted, and the Obamas arrived safe and sound at March, USA Today reported.
