IreneFilter: help me reschedule my air travel plans from DC to Reno on Sunday morning.
I'm due to travel from Washington, D.C. (Reagan National Airport) to Reno Nevada at 8:30 AM on Sunday. This timing seems to be smack dab in the middle of Hurricane Irene's projected path over the area. I absolutely must be in Reno by Sunday evening or very early Monday morning. Am I better off rescheduling for Saturday afternoon (around 5pm, not preferred, due to needing more time to pack) or for Sunday afternoon (5pm, when the storm should have passed)?
Factors to consider: when the storm will be impacting DC, desire to not leave on Saturday, potential backups in the air travel system Sunday afternoon. I know there are a lot of moving variables here, particularly the forecast, but I appreciate your full input and advice. Thanks!
