Christmas Travel Mess

Thank goodness we discarded our Christmas travel urges and responsibilities decades ago.  Bad weather problems are about a 70-30 proposition in the snowy parts of the country this time of year.  Although it does seem that the mess was dealt with more efficiently years ago than it is today, you have always risked a day or two delay in the event of a big weather event in New York or Chicago during the winter.

Clearly, airline load factor management focus coupled with hapless government meddling has conspired to amplify already challenging conditions imposed by weather upsets.  Add in the club-fisted TSA issues and we’re content to stay put, and have been for years.  Ho-Ho-Ho !
