  1. there really are going to be some insane numbers being reported 

     

     

    Every single model run:

     

    • Mixing
    • Ratios
    • Throw climo out the window
    • Why isn't anyone talking about wind?
    • HOW MUCH IN [tiny hamlet]

     

    Be thankful you don't need to add sun angle to that list...


  2. A list of airlines allowing free changes and delays for those traveling to, from, or through the Mid-Atlantic/Northeast:

     

    Pretty much all major airports from VA to BOS, 1/22-1/24: 

    United

    Southwest

    Virgin

    Alaska

    Delta

    Air Canada

    American (1/21 to 1/24)

    JetBlue (1/22 and 1/23 for Mid-Atlantic; 1/23 ONLY for New England)

    Spirit (1/22 and 1/23)

     

    Frontier is the only major (top 10 or so) airline without a policy out for this.
