This ought to make travel throughout the US a joy today.

All flights in and out of Chicago's two airports were halted Friday morning because of a fire at a suburban Chicago air traffic control facility. The ground stop threatened to send delays and cancellations rippling throughout the nation's air travel network, as more than 500 flights had already been canceled in Chicago and more were expected.
The fire started in the basement of the Chicago Air Route Traffic Control Center in Aurora, about 40 miles west of downtown Chicago, city of Aurora spokesman Dan Ferrelli said in an emailed statement.
The center was evacuated because of the fire, Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Elizabeth Cory said, and management of the region's air space was transferred to other facilities. Authorities said it was unclear how long the stoppage would last.

Ughhhh......I have a 7:20 flight that I'm taking to Bradley. Not going through Chicago....but these things tend to cascade into other markets. Hopefully the eastern seaboard remains relatively untouched by this.

Wish me luck.

I believe muzzle. My boss took it down in Idaho and he gave me some. He's attempting to clear some room in one of his several fridges to prepare for this years hunt.
