Of course and we're talking about terrible weather. That no doubt means travel nightmare situations with frustration traffic delays and cancellations as we've said. Let's take a look at the math on the flight aware map planes headed in and out of places like LaGuardia Airport where we find our Trevor alt. Trevor LaGuardia on a normal day. Is a bit packed and frustrating so what kind of like a right now. What Kimberly I'm happy to say that at least so far this morning and into the early afternoon it hasn't been so bad we've been here about an hour and a half and it's definitely noticeably more busy than what was. When we first arrived here you can see the lines are. Pretty small right now nothing too bad but it is absolutely going to pick up across the country we're talking about three million American travelers are so just today. I want to take a look at the American Airlines flight we're gonna notice right now in New York City the weather's pretty mild so far so.

If you're planning on this afternoon of the busiest times of the start to pick up around one. If you're flying from three to seven absolutely get here two hours early it can. He's you don't wanna get stuck here if you're flying internationally should give an extra hours three hours for international flights popularly.
