East Coast Snowstorm Affecting Flights at Midway, O'Hare

With more than 20-30 inches of snow falling hard along the East Coast (Gothamist dubbed it "Blizzargeddon"), travel plans throughout the country are being thrown all out of whack.

Early this morning, a combined 150 flights were canceled at O'Hare (130 flights) and Midway (20). And it doesn't look to be easing. Transportation officials are recommending that travelers flying to the East Coast call ahead to see if their flights have been affected, and to arrive at your airport at least two hours ahead.
