Didn't the groundhog say early spring?

Seriously, though, my DS will be thrilled to have one great snow to get out in this year. He loves winter.

He did. But he may be a bit confused since no one would expect THIS to happen. It's still February after all.

Hope that the NorEaster doesn't hit you too hard.

Yes it is, thank you. I probably should update that picture. No more kids for me! She has really been a challenge. Looks like we've rounded the corner though...

I don't mind the snow, but I hate that my husband has to get to and from work in it. He works at a hospital, so he has to go in. Also, he has by what many New Englanders consider a 'bad' car for snow- a mustang (2007)...it has rear wheel drive, and is low to the ground. DOT never plows the streets in Hartford, but usually he braves the weather and gets home- he says HE knows how to drive his car in the snow At times, he has spent the night at the hospital if the weather is really bad, so that is the option I push for when it is bad out.

My daughter is scheduled to fly out of Logan Friday night at 615pm to go to France for an exchange program. She will be so upset if the flight gets delayed.

The French students were here in October and got stranded for an extra weeek after the hurricane.

I have Friday off to say goodbye to my daughter so at least I don't have to travel too far.

Ditto. I'll be going to work at the hospital, too. Although it's been a very long time since I've had anything but 4WD or AWD. One lady I work with drove a mini Cooper and called up every snowstorm saying she couldn't get out of her driveway. Not cool. Others can't go home if people don't show up. (Not saying your husband does this cause I see he makes it in his Mustang, lol. Just that a lot of people do and they really need to find a way to get in if they're an essential employee with a Disaster Pass on their ID - there for a reason. Vent over. )

For 7 years I worked over an hour away from work on a good day. On snow days I would trek into work only to find those people who lived close by had called out due to the snow. Used to drive me crazy.

I assume the exchange program is making alternate flight plans by now, yes? That 6:00 flight is not going to happen. Can she switch to Fri morning? If not, she may not be going till they clear this mess up, maybe by Sat. night at the earliest.

I understand what you are saying Pea-n-Me After the two storms 2 years ago, he spent about 4 nights total at the hospital because our house was without power 2x's for an average of 4 days each time- he sleeps with a c-pap machine and it runs on electricity.

When we had bad snow storms a couple of years ago as well, he would just stay the night at the hospital so he did not have to worry about getting back to work in the morning. It aggrivates me when storms happen and other people's advice is just to not go into work- DH doesn't have that luxury. And don't get me started about how our state assumes no one works on the weekends (DH works every saturday from 3-11pm)- they NEVER plow highways and the city streets after like 4pm on the weekends (if they plow at all ) because they figure no one really has to work....grrrr- guess I had to vent, too!

ETA- during hurricane Sandy DH had to use his essential employee badge to get to work because our governor closed the highways and he wasn't about to try to get to work going on backroads.

I agree. You/the tour company should be trying to rebook them now. Don't wait, or there may not be room on the flights out for the next few days post-storm. Planes are flying less frequently and fuller than in the past, and people with the original bookings on those later flights won't be bumped in favor of the folks whose flight didn't go.
