Revealing mistakes 

When Anne goes to her room at the hotel she opens her window to let a soft breeze flow through the room and then goes to bed. However, there was snow on the ground in NYC and she would have been freezing with the cold air coming in. The next day she drives away from NYC while there is still several inches of snow on the ground.
