Southwest Airlines’ massive wave of canceled flights this week has impacted travelers all across the country — including the family of University of Washington quarterback Michael Penix, Jr.
Penix’s mom tweeted Wednesday that her and her family’s flight to Texas to see the Huskies take on the Texas Longhorns in Thursday’s Alamo Bowl was canceled.
Thanks to @SouthwestAir for canceling my flight to see my son play in the @valeroalamobowl 🤬— Mrs. Penix 🇯🇲 (@his_star4life) December 28, 2022

As a result, the family was forced to make a 17-hour road trip from Florida to San Antonio.
“We made it to our destination. Time to party,” Penix’s mom said just before 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
We made it to our destination. Time to party. What's there to do tonight for the DAWGs?— Mrs. Penix 🇯🇲 (@his_star4life) December 28, 2022
