I’m a little loathe to pontificate about traveling this week by air when I wasn’t involved (thankfully), but I can’t help myself. Frankly, I can’t think of a worse week for a winter storm like the one that struck a wide swath across the southern and eastern US this week. I suppose Thanksgiving might be worse, but the odds are much lower that you’re going to get a big storm then. A scenario where Atlanta gets snow on Christmas Day, Washington and Philadelphia get a little bit of snow but lots of wind, and all three New York area airports close due to blizzard conditions is just a nightmare. Couple that with a high percentage of travelers this week are inexperienced yearly fliers, and you’ve got the makings of a big mess in travel that’s likely to last throughout this week. My heart goes out to the folks caught in this mess. Try your best to be patient, but I know that’s easier said than done, especially when you hear that it might be days before you can be confirmed on another flight. Any readers stuck in this mess?
