15" of snow in Philadelphia, no problem. I'm a Chicagoan - if the flights are going this morning, so am I. Checked United's home page, travel waivers for the Northeast allow me to change my flight without being charged. 6 a.m. is a tad early, but, it's the first flight out - minimize the delays.
Not fond of 3:45 a.m. alarms - everything seamless so far. Check in at the airport, where's my wallet?? What - NO WALLET?? It's in my other purse at home. I don't make mistakes like this, I'm the Woman Road Warrior. No seats on the next flight. Wait. I'm still checked in for the later flight, can still make my lunch appointment. Can't rent a car without my license - catch a cab.
Expressway is empty - berating myself for the error. My now new flight which was my original flight leaves out of terminal 2, plan my course. There's a check-in at the end of terminal 3, easy access to getting an iced white tea from Argo Tea. All plans need a backup. The check-in is now for employees only - the travel goddesses are NOT making this easy. Finally sitting at the gate, the sun is shining, tea & Kind Bar with me. Been up for 4+ hours and I'm still in my home city. It's only going to get better right? GAME ON!
See you on the road!
