Well, I'm still in California after I was supposed to leave this afternoon to ring in the New Year with Symi in Chicago. After 3 hours in the Palm Springs airport, my flight was cancelled and after several more hours, I finally got a spot on a direct flight tomorrow. All this because of bad weather in Dallas (through which I was transferring).
At least I have somewhere I could stay here. Some people ended up renting a car and driving to LAX or being routed through 4 or so cities while not having it guaranteed that the would even be able to leave from their subsequent destinations.
Crossing my fingers for good weather tomorrow.
