Over the years I have avoided traveling during December through March because of all the weather delays. I've only had to do a few trips over the years and had no bad luck. You see the airport closings or canceled trips on tv and people look like a Mack truck has hit them.
I know most of us say, get a room and ride it out. But what if no rooms are available and you have no where to go in the area you are in? Has anyone had to deal with this before? I'm not talking a few hours. I'm talking possible days.
How do you survive at the airport? I guess you can get food until they run out. Does someone like Red Cross come?
This may sound crazy or silly to some, but I want to try to be prepared. I have a lot of travel dates coming up. I will be flying to places I know no one at.
Any friendly advice is appreciated. Stories that you can share would be great to. I want to hear it all. Even the smallest details. I believe in knowledge.

At MSP, we have a stranded passenger program. We provide sleeping mats and toiletries to stranded pax and arrange for the restaurants to stay open. We also have travelers assistance which assists with special cases.

Ha ha. Love some of the responses. I enjoy looking at the planes. Scotch can be a good thing to. I just have heard a few instances of not being able to leave and having to stay for a couple days and I was wondering what things that you can have with you help you deal with it better.
