Speaking of O'Hare, a good friend of mine got stuck there New Year's Eve. Weather? *shrug*
She was supposed to have arrived here (Denver) at about 4 pm Sunday. Ended up getting in at about 10 am Monday. Finally took 28 hours (including half hour of ground transportation at each end) to get from her folks' place in Connecticutt to her place here.
She called us to cry on our shoulders: "I get to spend New Year's Eve sleeping on the floor at O'Hare." All we could do was blow her kisses over the phone and drink a beer for her.
