Looks bad all over the east coast. Our airport in Pittsburgh is open, but flights to or from the east are cancelled. In fact, there are flights westward that are cancelled — these are the ones which originate in the east and stop in Pittsburgh. If you are going to fly anywhere, better check first to see if your flight is going anywhere.

After a convoluted landing pattern, my daughter’s flight got to JFK about 5 PM. I was fully expecting a cancellation mid-flight and for her to spend the night on the floor of an airport not of her choosing.

That’s what I miss from the years 2001-2004, they actually said that global warming could result in a new ice age

Boston’s Logan Airport is officially open, but over 90% of the arrivals and departures have been cancelled. The only airline still on schedule is little Cape Air!

Amtrak closed between Boston and NYC, and between Boston and Maine.

Be careful what you wish for, it just might come true. Too bad Al didn’t remember that phrase when he made his wishes regarding climate, because they are coming true, in a big way.

Must be a God Thing, hitting the East Coast with such nice weather for polar bears and penguins, shutting down NY and other sin cities on the East Coast. I love up here in the UP of Michigan we get lots of snow, yet we are never shut down. Maybe God is telling the people on the East Coast wake up and think before you vote for the morons that you want representing you at the state and federal levels. More snow falls in my neighborhood than New York gets in a blizzard - 24 - 36 inch snow falls at it is considered Lake Superior Lake Effect Snow.

JFK hardly ever closes. They usually keep at least 1 runway open. This is a nasty storm.

When’s the last time JFK, LGA, & ERW were all closed.. 911 ?

I call it time-release rain, not snow.

FANTASTIC!

Is it not sweet that those areas having the highest concentration of global warming wackos are now getting pummeled with a blizzard?! It would just warm my heart if they have the longest and most bitterly cold winter in their history.

Allentown, PA is currently at 21 degrees with snow. Maybe your friend was referring to windchill.

Anyway, there is certainly a lot of hype about this storm. Sure, it's a nasty one but it's wintertime and we need to expect these kind of things. Just let the plows do their job and things will be back to normal in the morning.

Speaking of PA, there are a lot of embarrassed Philadelphia Eagle fans being that the game was canceled on account of snow. It's a shame, as the best NFL games are snow games.

The sad part is that they will be the first ones to file complaints that the streets weren’t cleared up fast enough. They’ll be stuck at home filing complaints against the landlords, or they will go out, slip on the sidewalk and sue the landlord.

In the UK, The Sun, which is a tabloid had an article from around 2001 where it wrote that kids in England won’t be seeing snow anymore.

Giants fans were having a lot of fun as well. I lucked into some great seats at Lambeau in an area with some Giants team turnback tickets. The Giants fans and the team family members were a bit somber.
