Flight out of Philadelphia tomorrow evening. Looks like it will be canceled. Help me get my boyfriend out of the city and not waste a visit we both really, really need and have been planning for months.

My boyfriend is supposed to fly out from Philadelphia evening, but it looks like the flight will be canceled due to the snow storm. We've been planning this visit for months.
He was told he can make a change free of charge. What are our options? He's at work right now, and will be until 9:30, and lives about 30 minutes away from the airport in good weather. He'd be willing to sleep in the airport/a cheap airport hotel (wherever that airport is) or take a red-eye or take a train somewhere first--anything. I personal would prefer he not have to drive in the storm...but I know he'd do that.
Does anyone have any suggestions? The email didn't mention JFK as one of the effected airports, but according to the news it definitely is. BWI wasn't mentioned either, but they seem to be wracking up cancellations too. Pittsburg?
For what it's worth, the flight he is on is a transcontinental, daily, completely-full flight, which statistics say don't get canceled as frequently. It looks like it was a mass-email sent out. Should he just hold onto the original flight until it is canceled?
I'm sorry to throw all these questions out! We are relatively inexperienced travelers, and I don't know the east coast very well. I normally wouldn't do this, but for our mental health, I really can't express how much we need to see each other.
Thank you so much. I so appreciate it. I'm going to be watching/thread sitting a bit just in case anyone has any questions that I forgot to cover.
