Not a good week to be flying

Wow, I’m glad that I’m not on the road this week.  The US, Canada, and Britain have just gone into critical alert status for the first time ever and air travel is just a mess.  Here in Canada, carry-ons with any sort of liquid or gel are not allowed on any flight to the UK or the US.  In Britain, Heathrow airport is effectively shut down (still running, but everything delayed, many flights canceled, and many flights just not going there any more).  In the US, lineups are growing as Continental, United, and American airlines appear to have been targeted.
It’s hard to complain in a situation like this, and I doubt that many people are (other than the passengers who are inherently belligerent) but it sure would be frustrating to be stuck in this.

    Ugh – sucks… I am in the middle of a 3 week travel cycle… and I’m in Europe next week.

    Why am I having “Pete luck” travelling?
