It figures

I’ve got the mission (to Chicago tomorrow, back home on Sunday), I have my choice of planes, and I have almost perfect VFR weather for the entire 4 days over the whole region (probably the first time that’s happened this winter). But I’ve also got non-refundable plane tickets on United, so instead of 4 hours of fun flying, I’m going to have an hour or more of security, an hour of waiting for a connection in Dulles, and two hours of sitting in torture tubes, and then who knows how many hours getting from O’Hare to my destination (which is close to DuPage airport).

Oh well, at least I don’t have to worry about pre-heating the engine on Sunday at an “away” airport.
