    Due to travel to NJ this weekend. Should I bother or give it a rest. Specially paid for it and book time off work. Meant to stay near Newark airport. What the damage around there

    • Daniel Culbert

      It’s bad. I would try to contact your hotel/airline to see if you can rebook due to the circumstances. I live in NYC and its not as bad as jersey and I’d still tell people to rebook. Jersey is a disaster zone.
