30. Denver
Edited on Wed Dec-20-06 05:48 PM by otohara
I booked him a flight on Southwest already to come home on Sunday. But....I'm hoping since Colorado has been declared a state of emergency - that people flying into Colorado tomorrow from Midway - say...old folks like me coming to see their family here, might consider staying put. Colorado highways are a mess, and some will still be closed tomorrow. People might not be able to get out of their driveways still by tomorrow. Thus, my kid might get on a standby!!!

Am I dreaming?

Southwest was his original airline and I just checked, they have 7 flights leaving on Sunday - and 3 have now been sold out. I love Southwest, it's a gem of an airline.
