Going home day. Went to the airport in New Orleans quite early / in plenty of time to catch the first plane to Atlanta.
However the weather front (which caused chaos in Texas the day before) was expected in Atlanta any time and we were told that the airport was shut down. This of course after sitting on the plane for 1 hour.
In any case we had a 1.5h delay announced which meant that the connection to Amsterdam was out of the question.
So we got ourselves rebooked on a flight to New York and then Amsterdam. At a later time of course. I could have had a couple more hours in bed in the morning. I needed them too.
Made it home safely though, less the suitcases of course. They apparently made it to Atlanta and were stuck there.
