Heading Home at last

Finally we are landing again in Baltimore. The Pilot announces we can turn on our electronics. I get a text from Southwest saying our flight is delayed. Before I can finish reading the first text another one shows up. Our connecting flight was delayed twice due to a fire in the air control tower in the Chicago airport. Our flight was supposed to leave at 9:30 pm and did not leave until 12:30 am that is one airport you don’t want to be stuck in. We went for dinner and were eventually asked to leave so they could close. Then we headed for the coffee shop to find they closed also. Even the security staff was nowhere to be found. The people we were traveling with smoke and when they went out for a cigarette there was no one to let them back in. I had tried to get the airlines to get us a different flight and was told nothing was available until morning. I also asked for a hotel and was told they were all booked. We eventually took off for home after the pilot loaded the handicapped passengers (I told you the Airport staff was gone). We landed around 1:30 am I was so glad I had reserved my hotel for the return. We slept until nearly check out time. Traveling is always an adventure but this was exhausting. I would like to say you learn from your mistakes but the only mistake I can see is that after the first disaster we didn’t turn around and run for home.
