Waiting on the ground at Dulles

Apparently, Chicago O'Hare is experiencing "VOLUME, COMPACTED DEMAND" and not accepting any new arrivals, so we're sitting at the end of the runway here at Washington Dulles.

Of course, the pilot didn't say "VOLUME, COMPACTED DEMAND"; he said something like "wait a while". But in this brave, new, best of all possible worlds, we have PDA's that can surf over to the FAA website to find out more information for ourselves.

It doesn't make the wait any shorter, but at least it keeps us quiet...
