Dropped my wife off at Des Moines International this morning for a trip to New York to bring our daughter back for college. The flight to Chicago with a layover was cancelled an hour and a half before takeoff. (bad weather in Chicago) They had a flight to Charlotte to New York, so she got on this. Charlotte is a cluster #### and flights to New York are cancelled for tonight. She can get on a flight to Columbus at midnight and maybe get to New York by noon. I told her she might as well get on AmTrak and be there by 9. From Omaha to Newark was a direct flight, and only 4 hours.
