I was supposed to fly to the East Coast for the last 3 days of our certification training. All the stuff we've learned the past 2 weeks we are to practice & present in full.

Well, I fly out of O'Hare & due to the tornadoes, my flight - well, EVERY flight - was canceled.

Hours later I was reassigned a new flight. 1/2 hour before we were to board, it was canceled.

They put me on a late standby but everyone was standing by & I couldn't get on. Earliest flight then was 4:00pm tomorrow. So, my trainer talked to my boss & they said they had no concerns about me certifying & therefore no need to keep trying to get there, so I'm on my way home & will officially certify online on Tuesday.

Whew! I'm worn out & can't wait to get back home.

Wow. It's exhausting to travel. Especially when you don't end up going anywhere!

Well that would be frustrating as heck! Good news about O'Hare though....they have Garrett popcorn stands everywhere. Best popcorn ever!

It's great they aren't worried about you certifying :) hope you had a safe trip home from the airport.

I know! That's one of the 1st things I thought of too! LOL. Well, I can wear them for the holidays, and then I travel in January for the annual company meeting, so there's still a chance :D
