According to fly.faa.gov:

Due to SNOW AND ICE, the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE) was closed as of Mar 08 at 11:45 AM EST. The date/time when the airport is expected to reopen is Mar 09 at 07:00 AM EDT.

In addition, CMH seems to be unofficially closed as well... which is probably good after the CO737 skidded off the runway late last night. Columbus is pushing 15" of snow right now, Cleveland is showing 9".

Wow, closed until 7am tomorrow? Getting out of CLE is going to be horrible for the next few days.


What now?

Just think of the love at YYZ (Pearson) last night.

1st travel day for Spring break in Ontario, expecting 100k pax through the airport yesterday, and the biggest storm in many years landed on them (thank you America !  Wink ). I'm not sure the airport closed, but the delays would have been ferocious.



Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

Getting HOME from working at CLE was no better today!

Worked till midnight Friday, and stayed at the Radisson Airport in North Olmsted. Was back in at 0630 Saturday. I think CO got 3 arrivals in, and maybe 2 departures, and that was it today. Most of the operating 9am bank flights got boarded, then were cancelled due to conditions. After that, most everything quickly cancelled after that.

Took me an hour to get dug out of my parking space at the employee lot, and took me 30 minutes to get dug "in" to my driveway. I've had it for today.

Good luck to my coworkers and everyone trying to fly in/through CLE on Sunday. I won't be there. Big grin

I am **so** happy to no longer live and work at CLE....last year was enough for me....

After the Valentine's Day snowstorm last year, I rolled my rig on I-480 right near the airport heading towards Oberlin....I decided right at that moment that I had to get out.

Transferred to ABQ the next day.

Ya know Falcon, this has to be the most snow I can remember this late in the season to fall. Over here in Toledo, we picked up just shy of 2 feet of snow for the month of February. So far in March, I know we have 3.5" of snow plus whatever has fallen today (which appears like 6" here at my house). This is also on top of 3+" of rain in the end of January early February that caused yet more flooding around here.

I'd hate to see CO's and NW's glycol bills this year.

From the looks of things on the FAA site. JFK, LGA, EWR, BOS, PHL, PIT, Should all be closed. With the storms and weather along the east coast.

Glad I'm not flying international today. They are diverting everything into JFK all over the place.

Funny thing with all this snow, is that DTW, although we were supposed to get tons of snow just like CLE, the whole front completely missed us. We ended up getting about 1 inch of snow, while CLE and CMH are getting pounded.

CMH is indeed gettin pounded - 16" of snow in 24-hours according to 10TV... that's a new record, beating 12.1" in 1987! Most counties surrounding CMH, including Delaware, where I am, are under a Level 3 snow emergency, which means you can be arrested for driving... :-s

But is it a joke? Legend has it that in the '70's during Steelers-Browns games, the Cuyahoga (sp?) river would be lit on fire (it's pollution allowing that to happen) by visiting Steelers fans. And during Browns-Steelers games in Pittsburgh, the favor would be returned by Steelers fans returning to their cars with slashed tires at Three Rivers Stadium. I've always wondered how true this was...

As funny as this "legend" is...it's a load of crap. The river last caught on fire in 1969 and it had nothing to do with a football game. You're also making a huge assumption that the "Yins" across the border have learned how to make fire.
...and yes, Pittsburgh SUCKS!!

AFAIK, the only thing to close PIT was September 11... I was told that it was in operation -- a very limited operation during the Super Storm almost 15 years ago to the day! That was considered to be the storm of the century.

Now for the myth of the century:  Wink

HAHAHAHA!!

I will give you that the Browns are no longer a fluff team. Any false moves and they'll leave you in the turf! What's the deal with Anderson? Did they let him go? What gives? I guess we'll see what Brady Quinn can/will bring to the table.

Back to the topic, I was seeing how bad things were in CLE and BUF. I wonder where flights are being diverted to. I don't things were really any better here in Central PA. We had 61 mph winds earlier tonight at Lancaster Airport! I am sure MDT got them as well!!

Just kidding, but seriously since the US cuts I am sure they have no issues with delays during storms. Last August my wife and I flew out of PIT and I count 11 total planes on the ground, what a shadow of its old days!

p.s. Go Browns!
