Survive 2011's First Airport Snowpocalypse with These Jaunted Guides
Prepare for delays if, over the next few days, you're traveling...well, anywhere. Atlanta is of course functionally offline, with AirTran canceling ATL flights for the first time since 9/11 and even UPS halting traffic into the airport.
The rest of the South is doing only slightly better, with Alabama airports in huge trouble and Chattanooga flights getting scrubbed through tomorrow. States of emergency are in effect across the South, and there are snow flurries hitting airports as far west as Dallas/Fort Worth.
Things are only going to get more fun as the storm slowly starts making its way north. US Air has already canceled about 100 flights out of its Charlotte hub, with 6 to 9 inches expected for the area today. Washington, DC is supposed to get spared this time around, but NY was supposed to get spared last time and we all remember how that went. Speaking of which, New York should get hit some time Tuesday, and we'd make a joke here about how they haven't cleared out their backlog from the last storm, but we're not sure that's actually a joke.
Since you'll be needing them, here are some quick travel hell survival guides you might want to review. Umm... good luck?
