Status of Seatac and Snowmaggedon - updated

Winter weather update 1/19/12 10:20 a.m.
One runway/taxiway at Sea-Tac is open for arriving and departing flights. Another runway is open for departures. Please check flight status online or contact your airline for any flight delays.

So far, Jim's flight is showing on time. They're on their third gate change, but they do have a plane on the ground. Yay. He reports that they are de-icing with vigor.

Kim in Issaquah reports that they have no power in the RV park. She plans to bury bottles of champagne in the snow, for medicinal purposes only. Our friend Don in Manitoba has been reporting temperatures of -40C. MINUS 40. I'm not going to tell you what it's doing here, that would be cruel.

Update: Jim has been sitting in the airplane for two hours. One of the baggage doors broke and had to be fixed. Last time I spoke to him, they were waiting for de-icing. I don't know if they're going to leave today or not. Poor baby, he's hungry and he wants to go home.
Update: They've pushed back from the gate, maybe he'll get outta there, and back to this.

  1. I'm hoping this really starts to melt tomorrow, after the mess it caused today!
