fam I left ORD last night and Waze was saying 35 minutes from the welcome sign to T3. Pro tip: have your uber take side roads to the international terminal (5) entrance and take the tram to your terminal. Easily saved me 25 minutes last night.

Well i missed my flight going there so seems we are all just fucked.

Holiday time

Pre check was a nightmare this morning as well. Line wrapped around the airport

^ yes and it moved pretty fast. Took about normal time to get to gate. But traffic is unusually heavy on the highway.

D1 where you heading to.

OP headed to ORD for a meeting and then on to SFO. Haven’t rebooked my SFO yet since I’m not even sure I’m going to be able to move my Chicago meeting so might make sense to just keep this flight. Ugh. Nightmare.

From the loop to ORD it was 1.5 hrs this am. Do the train.
