Default Snow Storm in the Northeast.....

The weather channel has predicted a winter storm in the northeast that can effect air travel from New York as far down to the Carolinas....They are watching New York City because they are saying right now only 2-4".
This storm is supposed to start Friday night into Saturday. These totals for NYC are really no problem. I am traveling Saturday morning and praying that I will be able to get to San Diego without delay. I must say that I am glad to paid for insurance just for these incidents!!

I'm south, on the coast in Monmouth County and we're called for 6-24 inches right now. I'd keep an eye on that NYC forecast. They're changing hourkly.

Hope you make it, but start checking your insurance policy now to understand EXACTLY what it covers and what it doesn't..

MOST policies cover delay only after being delayed by XX number of hours.
Also, some/most policies expect you to catch up to the ship before any travel delay expenses are covered. You can't just say "Opps, couldn't fly out, reimburse me for the lost cruise." These last minute flights to catch up to the ship are also "Out of Pocket" expenses, then you get reimbursed.

Make SURE your (and all) policy covers acts of God. Usually, the policy will just pay for you to catch up to your ship, if you happen to miss it.

I lived it 17 years ago.

I would honestly look into flying out on Friday.

They are calling for 12+ inches in Philly...if it shifts north you are gonna have problems.

I have checked my policy and it says that if I am delayed 6 or more hrs they will cover me for reasonable expenses up to $150.00 per day. They are covering me for incliment weather.

* ACCUMULATIONS... STORM TOTAL ACCUMULATIONS OF 16 TO 24 INCHES.

* TIMING... SNOW WILL BEGIN FRIDAY MID-MORNING... AND WILL CONTINUE THROUGH SATURDAY EVENING. CONDITIONS WILL DETERIORATE RAPIDLY FRIDAY AFTERNOON... WITH HEAVIEST SNOWFALL OCCURRING BETWEEN SUNSET FRIDAY TO SUNRISE SATURDAY. THE MOST HAZARDOUS WINTER WEATHER CONDITIONS WILL OCCUR FRIDAY NIGHT... WHEN THE COMBINATION OF HEAVY SNOW AND STRONG WINDS WILL REDUCE VISIBILITIES TO BELOW ONE-QUARTER MILE... PRODUCING NEAR- BLIZZARD CONDITIONS.

As someone else said...........get out of the Northeast/Mid-Atlantic area by early Friday the latest if possible.

Saturday out of Virginia/D.C./Md./Delaware/Philly...perhaps NYC/Newark as well.......FORGET about it.

Our recent South Jersey call is for 24 inches, beginning Friday afternoon, with 40-50 MPH winds.

The global warming beliefs are most certainly deteriorating .

Eek!! We are cruising Monday on the Inspiration out of Tampa. We were flying in on Sunday morning but Southwest cancelled our flight out of Philadelphia and we are now flying in on Monday morning arriving in Tampa at 11:45. We tried to get out on Friday but couldn't. Hoping we make the ship...if not, Disney here we come!

In Maryland they had police directing traffic in and out of the grocery store parking lots and traffic jams for blocks. It took me a minute to figure out what all the commotion was. I heard people had to battle for grocery carts

we are flying out of Buffalo Sun pm with Southwest with a connection to Baltimore. We cruise on Monday as well but with Destiny. The forecast for Buffalo is sunny all weekend. I noticed for Baltimore it said 3 - 6 inches of snow through Sat so we are hoping it will not interfere with our connecting flight Sunday at 5:30 pm. Was your flight originally planned for Tampa or is that a diversion and you have to get to your cruise port. We are flying to Fort Lauderdale

On Sunday, Flight 811 connects through Chicago where there is NO snow anticipated. You might wanna check that out. It's not that the weather WON'T be better in BWI, it's that the airport and airplanes won't be back up to speed. I would change, but that's just me.

Baltimore is expecting up to 2 feet of snow. That may impact Sunday pretty hard.
