Another Fine Mess
Yikes, another nasty snowstorm in the Mid-Atlantic and New England states, this one with heavy winds.
Of course, air travel is snarled again. And the system is still not back to normal yet from the other recent storms.
Delays are mounting at airports. As of 4 p.m. today, half of the 1,200 flights at Newark were canceled, and most of the others remaining into the night will be delayed. La Guardia had 414 cancellations. Philly had 358.
Naturally, the worthless FAA air-traffic delay map that some of the media still refer people to is inaccurate. For example, it is currently showing a green dot for Newark -- meaning, no problems.
Forget the FAA map.
Will the air-travel system be back to normal by, say, Easter?
