stuck ...
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.

O Lord. Being stuck in airports is No Fun (tm). At least O'Hare is semi-interesting... I'd hate to be stuck in BWI or Philly (at least in the international part - there's NOTHING in them but a newstand and a cubby with duty-free stuff).

Well, I'm home. After finally giving up on O'Hare, I made my way over to the Amtrak depot at Union Station and took the train back to Flint.

Surprisingly, it was pretty easy; the CTA stop in O'Hare gets you to within two blocks of Union Station, and they have ticket kiosks right inside the Amtrak office.

Of course, I get back to the Flint airport just as the last two flights from Chicago arrive (simultaneously ... ?!?), one of which had empty seats on it. Argh.
