Anyone else stranded in the North East?

We were set to leave Tonight (Friday) night to drive down to orlando. We have this huge storm coming in and was wondering if anyone else in NJ or the North East is in the same situation as us?

They are saying about a foot of snow where we are, We already had to cancel our Saturday night hotel room. I plan on being up early Sat morning, plowing our driveway and then off we go. Hopefully the storm ends earlier than what they are saying and it isn't as bad.

I was wondering how this "monster" storm might affect people's Disney plans. We are in Massachusetts and are projected to have blizzard conditions and up to 3 feet of snow. Hope you get out and get to your magical destination!

I know a few people on another board I'm on are supposed to be flying out to Orlando on Sunday from NY and MA. Not sure how things are going to look by then, but I hope they still make it out. Last I heard the snow is supposed to last here in NJ until 1pm tomorrow, but you never know. Hope it picks up speed and gets out of the way so everyone can get on with their Disney vacations!

Actually someone reported on the POR thread they were to check out tomorrow and their flight has been cancelled and they were stuck IN Disney....what a place to be stuck!

But with people checking in over the weekend, and it will start to ramp up for President's Day week, some people may have trouble extending their stay depending on the conditions at home.

I am in Delaware, so we are just getting rain, rain, rain, but one of my co-workers' daughter and grandson live in MA, on the Vermont border. She texted about an hour ago, that if you look out the window at her place, it looks like someone just shook up a snow globe!

We are in MA and that's just how it looks out of our windows right now. We're expecting up to 24" in the next day or two. I"m so sorry for anyone trying to get out this weekend.

I'm in RI. Predictions for 2-3 feet of snow, and wind gusts up to 65mph. I can deal with the snow etc., I just really hope we don't lose power. It will be awfully cold will no heat.

So sorry to hear about those of you stuck due to the storms and not able to head out for your trips.

I'm from western PA and the east coast folks are in our thoughts.

I hate the cold and snow.
I'm a Nurse and I want to Move to FL and work as a Nurse at Disney.
That's my dream job.

Be safe all of you East Coasters.

We have 30" of snow here in the western Boston suburbs. Lots of blowing and drifiting and it is still snowing.
I am very worried about my daughter. She lives on the south coast. No heat, no power, no cell phone charger and running out of logs. She has about 12 " of heavy, wet, cement like snow. She can not get out to somewhere warm.
Lots of coastal flooding and damage.
It is pretty bad.

For that statement, you must have lived everywhere in Florida to hate the whole state We moved from Michigan to Orlando and lived there for 18 years, 6-7 months of 90 degree + high humidity did get old. Moved to the panhandle (Destin area) with great beaches and cooler weather, I do miss the snow but not months of it. DW would never move back to the north, she will only visit for a week

Either panhandle or S. Alabama seem like good areas in which to settle...

Just as a whole yes. I have been to many parts. Don't like it. Miss winters, fast paced life, work ethic, people are much nicer in NY. Yes I know NY has a bad rap but floriduh stinks. Way too conservative down here. Need open minds not mouths
