It took 10 minutes to get through security at LaGuardia Airport, New York, this afternoon. The TSA agents were restrictive regarding the sizes and number of carry-on bags (adhering to 2 bag limits). There are more agents than in the recent past and bomb-sniffing dogs roaming the terminal.
My husband's bags were flagged because of a containder of talc powder in his carry-on. The talc powder was purchased to get rid of a grease stain on his pants -- he never travels with such an item. Boarding passes are needed to continue through security.
All in all not too painful -- the passengers are being diligent, respectful and on alert. Now for the fun part - will our flight be on time?
See you on the road.
