Don't miss a flight!
Thanksgiving is only a day away! You've undoubtedly spent the past week planning the holiday and preparing for guests.
Well, things won't slow down for a few days. For example, you may have out-of-town guests arriving. And you'll need to pick them up from the airport.
Even on the best of days, airports can be a nightmare. Things only get worse on holidays. You can expect big crowds and delayed flights.
Before you head out to the airport, hit the ‘Net. You'll want to check the status of your guests' flights.
FlightStats provides flight information on a number of airlines. You don't even need to know the flight numbers! Just check the list of flights between two airports.
Of course, you could be doing the traveling. In that case, you'll still want to hit FlightStats. It will show you if your airport is experiencing delays.
Road traffic is also a big concern. You don't want to miss your flight due to a traffic jam!
So, don't forget to visit Google Maps. Just click the Traffic button at the top of the map. You'll see a stoplight beside the cities for which traffic information is available.
Then, click on the stoplight and select Zoom In. You'll see where there are accidents and roadwork. You'll also see how fast traffic is moving!
Since it's Thanksgiving, I've decided to give my great staff a break. Instead of going to the office, they're coming to my house. They will cook a huge meal, wait on me and then, wash my car! Naaah, that's a joke. They'll be off Thursday and Friday. So there won't be any daily newsletters. We'll be back at work on Saturday.
I hope you and yours have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. Let's be thankful for all the brave men and women at home and abroad who are at their posts to protect us. Enjoy your holiday, and thank you for letting me be a little part of your life again this year. And say a prayer for our troops who are in harm's way.
