I have a friend who works at the world’s busiest airport, Chicago’s O’Hare. Terminal 5 (the international wing) has been so busy these days that she was working 16 hour shifts just to keep up. She told me Americans (at least those who could afford to) have been flying out of the country to escape the bitter cold of Illinois. Last night it was -5 degrees Fahrenheit. I left a bottle of water in my van and as expected, I’ve got a bottle full of ice that following morning. LOL.
The snow storms these past days before Christmas made things a little worse. I’ve got a friend who was flying into Chicago but got stuck up somewhere in Canada for 3 days! Worse was his airline didn’t even bother putting him up in a hotel. He had to drive 5 hours back into where he came from. That’s a huge bummer I know!
Anyway, if you’re reading this and would be flying in to O’Hare in a couple of days or so, expect that there would be a little inconvenience along the way. Long lines by the ticket counter, taxi hunting, traffic, clogged hallways (wether in O’Hare or elsewhere) is to be expected.
Make sure you’re ready to do the dance once more time!
At least you enjoyed the sun!
