When the papers are full of stories of chaos and abandoned travellers and you turn up at the airport to find a tented village of passengers trying to outdo each other with their stoicism it saps the spirit a little bit. But it seems I'm one of the lucky ones. My flight was one of the estimated 40% that took off as normal yesterday and all was fine. In fact, not having to eat airline food on the trip can probably be regarded as something of a bonus. Napa is sunny. So am I.
