Ok, so...
I am flying home tomorrow for Christmas break. My route of flight....
TYR-DFW (1130)
DFW-ORD (1340)
ORD-MSP (1640)

With the snowstorms forecast in the Midwest tomorrow, how late do you think I will be?

If you can make it out of ORD on time then it shouldn't be a problem.

MSP crews rock when snow comes around.

Just running in to a burning house...
Skip the hotel, get an apartment.

We have a guy at MDW who's been there since last night. Can't get in to MKE because they can barely keep the east/west (airline) runway open, let alone clear the ramp for freight trash.

Hmm, 13 votes for "Bahahahaha!!!". I'll let y'all know how it turns out...assuming I can get wireless somewhere along the way.

So far flights are going out of MSP o.k. They are closing and opening RW's (12R/L) as they plow. But so far so good....The snow has just started though. Expecting 4-7 inches today.

Glad to be at work...Can't wait for the ride home at 7 tonight....:panic::nana2::panic:

Luckily it will only be 2-4in. due to the extremely dry air (according to my professor).

Sounds like I won't be taking my checkride tomorrow.

Ahhh...isn't he coming from Chicago and not Winnipeg?
Ahh yes he is. But....It's a rather simple concept that if the wx is causing these types of delays for one, it is quite possible to happen to others....

* Due to WEATHER / SNOW-ICE, departure traffic destined to Minneapolis-St Paul International/Wold-Chamberlain Airport, Minneapolis, MN (MSP) is currently experiencing delays averaging 3 hours and 59 minutes.

I'm not sure it's that simple. I've had plenty of days where I've gotten in and the guy behind us had to divert because of fuel issues. People divert for all sorts of reasons, and it's usually not as simple as, "One guy diverted, so everybody will divert" unless the airport is closed.

Show me where where I said. ""One guy diverted, so everybody will divert". I believe my words were:

"...it is quite possible to happen to others........"

Alright guys...

My original flight to MSP was cancelled. I was booked KORD-KSTL-KMSP, but would have got in probably 10-11 PM after delays and still would have had to have someone pick me up late at night in the blizzard, so I rescheduled on a direct flight tomorrow morning and am crashing at an old roommate's place in Chicago. It actually worked out pretty well, we went all over downtown and got some Chicago-style pizza.

Well, I'm back in MN. Flight yesterday morning was on time and very chill, as I think most of the PAX were sleeping after spending the night in hotels or ORD from cancelled flights on Saturday. It just finally got up to 0° F here, and this Texanized boy is freezin'. Anyway, it's good to be back, and since the fam has dialup interwebs I won't be on here much. Have a great Christmas, everyone!
