    The solution is simple, take Amtrak. Why sit around two days, when during those two days at the airport, you could be on board a nice warm comfortable Amtrak Superliner train heading to Chicago! Trains are the “all weather” mode of transport, and can make it through just about any of the worst snow conditions you could think of! Get on board today!
