For the last 24 hours New England has been battered by gusty winds, heavy rain, dense fog, and occasional thunderstorms. I heard about the radar going out, but planes have been coming in slowly. Forgive me for sounding clichéd, but if travelling into BOS, please call your airline to check if your flight is operating on time, or at all, because from this Bostonians view, it sure as hell isn't!

Experience is what you get when what you thought would work out didn't!
