We were supposed to leave Sat. morning but flight got cancelled. Was able to get a 9pm flight on Sun. Disney was very nice about rearranging our reservation. Tried to get a late flight on thurs or early today but everything booked. Right now it's raining here in NYC. Expected to get bad later on.
Good luck and stay safe

We're near NY's capital. "Only" supposed to get about a foot here. I do have a Chinese new year brunch tomorrow that I'm still hoping to make, but we're not flying out o Disney until next Saturday!
Good luck.

We're snowed in here until the plow clears out our street. Can't see the house at the end of our block and the bottom 2 steps at the front door have disappeared under drifts.

But I just got off the phone with a lovely CM who booked us on the Gardens of the World tour during our trip in April. So I'm happy for now.

I think we'll wait till tomorrow to fire up the snowblower.

Good luck to all of you north of us (South Jersey). We just got back from nine beautiful, warm, sunny days at WDW. This is really a bummer of a transition from that to this...and we're only supposed to get heavy rain, wind, and a couple of inches of snow.
The derecho in June and Hurricane Sandy prompted us to order a whole house generator. It should be in next week and installed the following week. The anticipation of losing power is almost worse than the reality.

I'm in southern NH. Only a few inches so far but the winds and snow are starting to pick up. Dh has been stuck in Toronto since last night and will hopefully get home tomorrow night, but I think Sunday is more likely. Logan isn't reopening until late afternoon on Saturday.

We're on Cape Cod and we've got snow, wind, and lightning. Power flashed off and on a couple of times. So glad our flight out of Boston isn't until next weekend!

Not this time but when Sandy hit we found ourselves on an extended WDW vacation. Our 7 day trip turned into 11 days before we were able to get a flight home. We were lucky though that we were already in Orlando when the storm hit as I can't imagine being stuck trying to get to The World.

It's amazing how many people don't have whole house generators. Ours is hooked up to our natural gas supply and tests itself once a week. We were with out power here in Western Maryland for over a week during Sandy. Gennie was amazing. You won't regret it.

We left a day early. Get to spend an extra day in Sunny Florida while there's a blizzard going on at our house in NEPA.

We were suppose to leave Friday am driving. I see they were calling for ice from southern Virgina Thursday night. I texted DH and asked it was possible to leave a day early.

We booked a night at the beach so we just added an extra night!

Stay safe everyone!

I hope there is a room for us when we get there Sunday!
