I'm trying to get from Boston, MA to Portland, OR. I've been in airplanes and airports for well over a day and a half. Why so long? Check out what weather.com has on its main page:
Wonderful, the two biggest snowstorms in the country happen to be hovering directly over where I was leaving from and where I am trying to go.
I'm currently in Seattle WA and am one 40 minute flight away from Portland, OR. The next issue is that the snow storm is going to make it almost impossible for my parents to come get me from Portland. STUPID SNOW!
