Delays are risky no matter what time of year. Saturday I was to leave Nashville at 6:15AM. We sat on the plane for over 2hrs, because just as we were to pull away Atlanta (the connecting airport), called a "Ground Stop" on all planes due to a severe rain storm. Also planes can have maintenance issues, flat tires, unexpected crew delays etc. If at all possible, flying in a day prior is less stressful. One more example to add; we never know when some idiot will make a wise crack causing a diversion of the aircraft.
