I am 15 miles from the airport in MKE ans there is not a cloud in the sky by me. I know they were saying 2-6" snow by the lake today and MKE is a stoneds throw from the lake. I might have to head in and see what is going on.

A Northwest Airlines jet overshot a taxiway this morning and got stuck on the grassy edge, delaying flights while an alternative runway was cleared of snow, Mitchell International Airport spokeswoman Patricia Rowe said today.
No one was injured, and the plane was not damaged, she said.
According to Rowe, the pilot of the DC-9 jet, en route from Minneapolis, had landed on the airport's north-south runway and was turning onto the taxiway when "for unknown reasons" he missed the turn around 8:15 a.m. It's not clear if weather was a factor.
"Until we can tug that plane out of the grass, the north-south runway is closed," she said.
The airport is now clearing its east-west runway of several inches of lake effect snow, and flights will be diverted there, she said. Flights were expected to resume at 10 a.m., she said.
Normally, on a Saturday morning, only one runway is necessary for the volume of flights, Rowe said.
To check on the status of a flight, go to www.mitchellairport.com and click on "arrivals" or "departures"
under the "Passenger information" heading.

Quoting SuseJ772 (Reply 21): Still...you should edit the first post to avoid confusion. Just add a line at the bottom that references the post that clears it up.
I couldn't edit it. Hence what I said in reply 5. You do know that you lose the ability to edit a post after about X minutes, right? In reply 5, I asked the mods to change the topic title to make it more relevent, and not mis-leading, despite the initial confusion at first.
If you fail to read the entire thread before passing judgement, then you have no right to complain.
