Holiday travel: Insanity at the airport

Took my friend Sonya to the airport this morning for her trip to visit her family in Colorado. Her flight left at 12:35, so we got there about 09:40 keeping in mind the two-hour advance arrival the airlines recommend (we met for breakfast at 08:00 but ended up finishing that by about 09:10). So of course she breezed through security by about 10:30 and had a couple hours to kill.

The traffic at SeaTac was insane. Cars everywhere, long lines at the curbside check-in stations. I imagine the lines at the inside ticket counters were pretty long too. Sonya wasn't checking any bags, and she had an electronic ticket, so she got through everything pretty quickly.

She gets back in a week.
