I prepared for my last business trip just like any other, including deferring packing until the night before I left. With a 630am flight out to California, my alarm sounded what felt like seconds after my head hit the pillow. Once I came to my senses and took a hot shower I realized that I probably should have given myself more time to get to the airport given the government shutdown, rumors of limited TSA staffing and the torrential downpours that were bound to slow my progress of getting safely Bradley and onto my plane. I don’t like to have much free time in the airport, but this was cutting it close even by my standards seeing as I have an hour drive to the airport from my home (on a good day).
