ESCAPE FROM CHICAGO! Your blogger eventually makes it home despite snow, freezing rain, slush, wind, and a big O'Hare-y airport.

According to this, far fewer flights were cancelled today than Sunday. I should add, in compliment to United Airlines, that it cancelled no flights out of O'Hare today except for two -- and both of those were to Montreal so they don't matter. True, my late a.m. flight boarded at 2:15 p.m., and achieved wheels up at about 3, but at least it took off, about 27 hours after I was supposed to have left Chicago. (I spent most of those hours back at the downtown hotel I had just vacated, so don't weep too hard.)

For you Chicago travelers: Airport Express is OK for the O'Hare-to-downtown trip, but for the return trip, I found them to be unreliable.
