I write this from gate G8 at O'Hare airport. I've been stuck in Chicago since 1:00pm (CDT) yesterday, since my connecting flight from Chicago to Flint was cancelled due to all the thunderstorms. Had to spend probably the worst night of my life in a seedy overpriced motel (which had a big brand name on it, so go figure). Today, my only hope of getting home appears to be flying from here to Cleveland and then grabbing a Continental flight from there to Flint.
And I'm supposed to be going on "real" vacation on Saturday. Sigh.
