    CNN is predicting quite strongly that people will be sleeping in the ATL airport tonight due to weather problems. If you are scheduled to fly to/from/through ATL today or tomorrow, be warned.

    Ugh. Yeah, there are some nasty ones on the way. Just dark and cloudy now but it's going to get ugly soon.

    Ahh :(:mad:. My brother has a flight from chicago to ATL and then headed to FLL for me to pick him up tonight. I had heard there might be some bad weather but this does NOT bode well for him getting down to Florida tonight. Too bad he doesn't have a non stop to fly over/around this storm.
    There is an off chance he'll be okay. Looks like things pass over by 9PM but that's assuming the whole airport doesn't just shut down so bad that everyone is stuck.

    Yep, everything was moving just fine a little while ago. Other than the terrible traffic to get in to the terminals! Eek! But planes moving along as they should

    Yep. I'm heading over to FLL to pick up my bro now for a good South Florida Christmas. His flight into ATL was a little delayed but right on time flying out. I love the flight tracking options online. I can sit on my couch until the last minute to minimize my waiting/circling.

    Do you track the brother's checked luggage to fine tune it further?

    No checked bags this time. Didn't know you could do that!
