I know you all wish there were some rain, but instead it all hit Chicago, which I had the bad judgment to try to connect through from Las Vegas. As a result, I'm stuck overnight in air travel purgatory. (Chicago Weather Center)
It's ironic to get stranded by our air travel system the day after interviewing Ray LaHood. At the panel, he got the most applause when he talked about new restrictions on airlines stranding passengers and the like. Sadly, USDOT can't make new rules ordering the weather to stop being so extreme, and the Senate won't address the larger problem.
