Back now.  
The trip to Chicago was quite something. Substantial delays coming *and* going due to weather. Got bumped from Midway aiport to O'Hare -- twice. Got a rental car that simply wasn't there and had to deal with that in unseasonal heat after more delays. Several normal travelling SNAFUs like me forgetting to bring a comfortable backup pair of shoes (my feet hate me right now, which is pretty fair under the circumstances). General stress and travel worries and getting lost and whatnot.

Still, good trip overall. It's just that everything related to getting to and from Chicago was horrible.

They were indeed. Getting to Midway was easy, actually. Then our flight was delayed until we couldn't make the connecting flight in Denver, and we were bumped to a flight in O'Hare, which was later further delayed.

We took a cab to get to O'Hare, because they scheduled us for an 8:30 flight at 6:30, and we had to make it back through security again on the other side. So no problems with directions there.

We arrived at Midway at 3pm or so, *easily* in time for our original scheduled flight. Our plane left the runway at O'Hare at 11pm, so close as to make no difference.

I'm not sure why Chicago having bad weather on Memorial Day would be more of a message to the right than the left. Is Chicago crazy conservative or something? I know they're kinda stodgy, but I consider that to be different :-)

Glad you made it back in once piece =)
