“APPARENTLY, THERE’S ANOTHER PROBLEM:” I left home for the airport at 2. If I had left for Washington then, I’d be halfway there by now. So far, Toyota is looking better, and U.S. Airways is looking worse.
UPDATE: I’ve watched over two hours of CNN nonstop, too, which only serves to remind me why I don’t do usually do that.
ANOTHER UPDATE: Still on the ground, with another revised boarding time passing. If this flight doesn’t go off, they say they’ll put me on another that will get me to DC by 10:38 — later than I would have gotten there if I’d started driving at 2, when I left to come to the airport.
I’m beginning to think that air travel is overrated.
