DW has a flight tomorrow morning 8:30 AM from PHL-CLE. Keep the flight or switch to a later flight?

Any suggestions/strategies?

Best strategy for a situation like this is keep original flight but buy anywhere that's refundable (priceline Amex etc) alternatives as insurance. That was the only way I got out during a storm. Bought a ticket on every airline. And the one that flew, I took. But can be costly. Once the flight is canceled its too late usually... May already be too late.

Flight is not cancelled, but airplane is now in SWF for the night. (Tail#N629AE)
Flight leaves at 6:10 am for PHL. I guess we'll see if it takes off.

Both flights now showing on time.

Yawn.

Good to know that about becahwood.
1. Move to beachwood bc They're great at handling extreme snows
2. Move to Beachwood because they don't get that much snow (compared to snowbelt)

Out of curiosity, what's the largest storm recorded for beachwood/cleveland? Have you guys gotten 2+ feet recently?

PSA:

"All local and state roads in New York City and Long Island:

A travel ban will go into effect on all state and local roads at 2:30 p.m. until further notice in New York City and on Long Island. Only authorized emergency vehicles, hazard vehicles and critical healthcare personnel will be permitted on these roads.

New York City subways and buses:

The last inbound or outbound trains on above-ground lines will depart at 4:00 p.m. today. After 4:00 p.m., service on above-ground lines will be suspended until further notice. Service will thin out before 4:00 p.m., and some subway lines may be delayed or suspended on a case-by-case basis as conditions warrant, so commuters should not wait until 4:00 p.m. to head home. All local and express bus service remains suspended until further notice.

LIRR, Metro-North and Staten Island Railroad:

The last inbound or outbound trains will depart at 4:00 p.m. today. After 4:00 p.m., service will be suspended until further notice.

#Fake news. Neither 311 or MTA websites have anything about this. Same with 880.

Correct. Just confirmed it's old info
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

I don't know if it's just the wind or also the type of snow, but I have areas that are twice as high as what's fallen overall, but also parts of my lawn where I can see grass.
