“I love the four seasons,” said no one in the Northeast today. The weather sucks!
There’s already six inches to a foot on-the-ground in Connecticut.
With rain/sleet/freezing rain and then a turn back to snow, the pack will be wet, heavy and tough to clear.
I just traded texts with my niece Melissa in Milwaukee. She and husband Mark are supposed to fly Southwest to New York City tomorrow. Good luck.
New York City’s new mayor is in snow denial mode. Another attempt to blame the weatherman. It’s bipartisan. Everybody does it!
The mayor and Al Roker battled it out on Twitter this morning. Winter will do that to you. Everyone gets testy.
Southwest hasn’t cancelled flights for tomorrow yet. They will!
Will Melissa’s plane even make it to Milwaukee tonight so it’s available for a 6:05 AM departure? Will the crew have enough rest hours? How crazy will our nation’s air traffic system be?
I’m not sure what to do on a day like today? It’s 75° and partly cloudy at John Wayne Airport. Out my window, totally blue skies. Should I just keep my mouth shut and hide?
I totally understand what folks in the Northeast are going through. It might seem like I’m rubbing it in. I’m not. My dues are paid-in-full.
Usually by mid-February, winter had gotten the best of me. And yet I knew there was more snow to come. There was nothing to do but grin and bear it and plan my escape.
More snow Saturday. Post photos. That’s as close as I’m getting.
