    I just saw on the news FRG is reopened. They say 6PM for EWR, JFK and LGA.
    It's the fares, stupid

    Yup just heard 2 "Exec Jets" depart on Tower.
    Have to tell you I took a walk in my neighborhood around 315 and the snow is a major pain but damn it looks pretty, Bright sun, blue skies you can really enjoy this wonder of
    winter which always looks the best the hours after the storm blows out.

    And not an aircraft to be seen or heard. Strangely it reminds me of the days after 9/11.

    I took the wife's car to the library--should have checked first- closed ....the only clean road in my area was Vanderbilt Parkway...and on the main street in my development, the guys are dumping snow from driveways right in the street.

    My car is still in need of cleaning off, and the daughter's car (92 Roadmaster) is happily buried on the street. I will worry about that one tomorrow because I don't want her driving that in the snow anyway.

    Stay safe friends.

    Lufthansa pilot just called in to get a status on the runway.

    Kennedy Ground answered: "Its new, about 200ft wide and its concrete."

    JFK opened about 15 minutes ago. Only 31L is open and it sounded like only a few taxiways as well - this should get interesting. RJA261 is the first at the party after some crazy holding in SE CT and over the Island.

    Should get fun with only a couple ways to the one runway and everyone wanting to go. Get some popcorn everyone, its going to be a long night

    exactly what I was thinking. I think the controller was waiting all day to say that. The controller does sound upbeat though.
