Holiday travel blues

This year I broke my “never travel around the holidays” rule. And now we’re paying for it.

Because of the big cold wave / storm coming in, we decided to be smart and get out of Dodge early – I changed our flight from the 24th to the 22nd. Then SW cancelled our flight on the 22nd, no explanation. So I’ve rebooked on the 24th, though I’m fairly certain that flights that day will be impacted or cancelled. My best guess is that we’ll be here 4-5 days past Christmas, as it’ll take a while for the air travel system to recover from 2-3 days of flight cancellations across the country. I’m OK with it – just more time with the kids here in Louisville – but K, who hasn’t been well, wanted to get back west. Can’t win.
