Winter storms impacting holiday travel

Every year around the holidays travel spikes across the country and delays are almost an expected part of the process. 2013 is proving to be no different as winter storms, in time for the busiest week of holiday travel in the United States, start to blow in.

A large storm in the western half of the country already pushed through Oklahoma, Texas, and New Mexico and lead to eight deaths and countless delayed flights. Meteorologists expect this storm to push East before Thanksgiving and continue to disrupt travel plans of men and women in the states.

Cold delays are not just expected in their typical places for this year as delays are already streaming in, due to ice and snow, from Florida, Texas, and many other states in the Southwest.

Meteorologists and other officials have gone on the record stating that many people will have to rethink whether or not they travel this year at all with an eye towards keeping their family safe from potentially treacherous conditions. According to AAA, despite the conditions, more than 43 million U.S. citizens will be hitting the road in attempts to get to their friends and family for the holiday season.
