Home away from home

We drove to the airport this morning, knowing that our original flight (shown in purple for you visual learners) through Denver was delayed. It didn't matter if we wanted to fly to Sioux Falls, Sioux City, Omaha, Des Moines, or Chicago- everything was full due to the backup of people who are stuck in Denver in the blizzard or couldn't go through Denver yesterday! So we returned to our already-chilled home (feeling much warmer by now, though). We plan to take the next available flight, which will get us to Sioux Falls on Saturday night by a somewhat indirect route (Pasco/Seattle/Cincinnati/Sioux Falls; shown in red). It seems that compared to others, our situation isn't so bad; at least we are "stranded" in the comfort of our own home (although we'd rather be "home" in the Midwest) and we'll be able to fly this week.
Another interesting tidbit: Nate got interviewed for the news (about being a delayed traveler) as we were leaving the airport.
