After all the cancellations last week from the radar center fires, travelers are still finding themselves unable to leave Chicago.
From USA Today’s Ben Mutzabaugh,:
More than 450 flights – or about 16% of the entire day’s schedule – had been grounded at O’Hare and nearly 1,000 more delayed as of 5:50 p.m. ET, according to flight-tracking service FlightAware. Across town at Midway airport, about 300 flights – or nearly half the day’s schedule – had been canceled as of the same time. Delays were less-rampant at Midway, affecting only about 45 of the flights that hadn’t been canceled.
Thursday’s problems came as a strong weather front approached Chicago, where thunderstorms and heavy rain were forecast.
But Chicago flyers can’t seem to catch a break!
I was stuck there for a while during February’s snow storms, but I always assume I might be somewhat stuck when I’m traveling to Chicago in February. But in October?!
