Even though American cancelled dozens of flights out of O'Hare today (here's why), it looks like my 7:25 p.m. flight is going out on time, or close to it. So far, the travel gods have been with me:
- the airport shuttle arrived at the hotel 5 minutes early;
- we made it to O'Hare in less than half an hour (there was almost no traffic, probably because practically everything in Chicago shut down this morning due to the snow);
- the curbside check-in guy didn't charge me, even though my big bag was "just a little bit" overweight (it's probably those two skeins of Lorna's Laces);
- and there was NO line at security.
Of course, I had figured an extra two hours into the trip, so I'm killing some time now.
I might have Cinnabon for dinner.....
