    Re: Holiday Party?

    The weather is very questionable for this weekend. Is this still happening?

    It's an indoor event, so I can't think of any reason why not...

    Pre-event spotting is probably a no-go though. :cry:

    Well, I know it's indoor but the getting there part.

    It looks like the weather will hold until late Saturday night, with the NWS and AccuWeather forecasting the snow to start somewhere between 10 and midnight. Shouldn't be any problems on the roads or trains.
    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.

    To second Matt's post, even poor weather should not slow down public transportation.

    Well, it's a nay for me. We should have another one for those that couldn't make it, maybe later this month or early next year.

    Another one definitely won't happen before the New Year.

    Maybe we can have a Valentine's Day party where everyone can just kiss and get it over with. :P

    Historically, the subway and LIRR do pretty well in snow. Heavy rain, on the other hand...

    Take it from a former LIRR employee... Nope, not really. The diesels are the workhorses but sometimes the alcohol trains break down, esp. if they are MUs.
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    Anyway, LIRR and MNR do have problems with snow, specifically the older trains have a bad time with fluffy snow. The subways are generally pretty reliable, and even MTA buses usually do a respectable job in bad weather.

    Regardless, unless the forecast changes, it looks like we'll be getting flurries at worst by the end of dinner, which won't affect anyone.

    This just got really confusing on my part. I will be attending and just got permission from the school to leave! Hope to see you all there!

    No worries. We have room. I left the reservation at 20, since we had so many yes/no/maybe/yes/no's.

    Hey Mel- Can you just confirm the address for me? From the link you posted, it's 2909 23rd Ave
    Astoria, NY 11105
    I'm coming by way of GPS, so I just want to make sure the address is right. :D
