RE: good luck with the travel…'historic' blizzard forecast...

Not really normal -- governor has asked everyone to stay home, MIT is closed and public transit will be closed. However, hopefully people will have dug out by Monday afternoon.

Look forward to seeing you there.

Dear all,

in my opinion it is winter and snow is “normal” – as Peter outlined the weather forecast  indicated snow for Friday and Saturday, but sun for Sunday and Monday. And temperatures are expected to rise to about 40-44 degrees F (approx. 5 C)

Therefore, we should be calm and look towards the important f2f meeting next week.

Could we please make a decision on this by COB Friday?  If this is off, I have another conference to go to on Saturday.

Sounds like winter time. Windy and snow. Based on experience the Boston area has an insane amount of snow removing vehicles. More than I ever seen in Norway.

Thank you David.

W3C Staff and Co-Chairs,

When will you make the call on whether the F2F is a go or no-go due to severe weather?

Thank you,

"The heaviest snow totals by early Sunday morning are expected in New England from coastal Maine to Connecticut, as well as the Adirondacks of Upstate New York, where over one foot of snow is expected!  Some locations, particularly in coastal New England, may top two feet of storm total snow!  The following cities are in the threat for at least one foot of snow:

        • Boston
        • Hartford
        • Providence
        • Portland, Maine
        • Burlington
This has the potential to be a top 10 snowstorm all-time in Boston!


Saturday: Heavy, wind-driven snow continues in New England much of the day, particularly along the eastern coast.  Snow ends in the morning around New York City.  Snow finally tapers off inBoston Saturday evening, and pulls off Downeast Maine after midnight Sunday morning.  "
