I'm supposed to be in San Jose today, but because of terrible weather yesterday my flight was canceled. So now I'm sitting in Chicago's lovely O'Hare, waiting for a flight that is supposed to get me into San Francisco at 6:40 so that I can speak in a church in San Jose at 7:00 PM.
Wishful thinking, you say? Oh, I'm sure you're right! But this is the best our modern air traffic system could manage. I was thinking that I'd be running through the airport as it is, but then I checked with my favorite flight tracking service, Flightstats.

The AVERAGE DELAY is 66 minutes? I'll be lucky if I make to the church before everyone has left and is safely tucked into bed at home!!
