for those on the go

so i fell for it last night. the weather reports said 4-5 inches of snow. i had an early am flight and said to myself and my roommates, “heck no, i’m not driving in the dark, on ice & snow (coz i know the streets wouldn’t be plowed), to fly in blustery winds to ny.”

it was definitely a gamble as all flights to laguardia were delayed, either due to mechanical issues (like them de-icing the planes in lga) as well as weather — high winds (scary scary). anyway, i made it to nyc after 6 or so hours or fretting on what to do. i think this might have helped: the Air Traffic Control System Command Center is wireless! go to www.faa.gov/wireless and check how your airport of choice is doing.

i could have been making all these decision snuggled in bed, instead of standing by the window freezing my @ss off and calling all the travel numbers.
