You should just be honest and tell them that you'd rather die than make it to the client site and would like compensation for the inconvenience

Love that “high winds” was put in quotes as if it’s some type of conspiracy.

Wow. Seriously you are not special. Why do you think they should compensate your for weather. Do you really want to get on that plane and die...??? They should make you pay them for saving your life.

If you had an option to delay your/loved one’s serious issue how long a delay would you seek?
