    ''Twas the night before Vegas and all thru my house............Ok, love my family, friends, hosting events, etc. Had a houseful all last weekend with everyone. This weekend was just me, D and our 2 girls (much quieter). Now we get a reward. Heading to Vegas Monday afternoon til Thur morning (weather permitting) still about 12 hrs of ice storm to endure.
    Just me and D so no set plans except a slot tourney at Rio. Staying at Harrahs since the shuttle is easy from there. Probably slots, bj, vp and some Diamond lounge visits. I'll attempt to update as it goes.

    So the heavy snow missed us but lots of ice and very windy. Flying Allegiant from Fargo (its cheap and direct). Just checked airport info and flight is Cancelled! WTF! I'm hopeful that it's rescheduled for later today but unknown at this time.

    Oh noooooooooo! So sorry to hear this- please keep us updated on when you manage to get out! I know there are tons of flight cancellations in that whole area. My parents have tix to fly back to WInnipeg today, (just a few hours from Fargo) and I was shocked to see their flight was NOT cancelled as so many others are. I guess some airports have things moving so fingers crossed you find your way to Vegas sooner than later!!

    Oh nooooo - what a disappointment that must be. I hope things clear up and your flight just goes out later in the day. Keeping my fingers crossed for you...

    No flight available today, Allegiant rescheduled us for 7:30pm tomorrow. Wife looks at website just now and sees our orig flight at 1:37pm tomorrow. So a day late but earlier than Allegiant tried to get us in. Waiting to hear back on slot tourney since we will miss registration.

    This sucks. I spent Xmas a bit north of the Cities close to 94 and we kept close attention to the weather reports in Alexandria and St. Cloud. Heard some parts of ND got 15 inches of snow. Hopefully karma sides with you when you make it to Vegas.

    Made it thru tsa. MrsFiredew received an extra pat down! She said " they were looking in her waistband for muffin top"! Rewarded with a Goose Island and Furious tall pours.

    Still need to try furious along with a billion other beers. Lol. They actually serve that at an airport allegiant uses though? Better than STL's selection!

    Glad you made it to Vegas, have a great stay. I will no longer travel in the winter due to weather delays...have to wait until spring for my Vegas fix.
