Marylanders On The Move

In case you didn’t notice, there is a mass movement of Marylanders going on right now. According to this story by Ryan Sharrow in the Baltimore Business Journal “Some 871,000 Marylanders are projected to travel 50 miles or more for Thanksgiving, a 3.5 percent increase over last year…”

The movement is starting earlier too. As Michael Dresser wrote in The Sun, “Tuesday before Thanksgiving is becoming the new Wednesday before Thanksgiving.”

It was for Peanut and I. We caught a flight out of BWI yesterday for Florida. Our early departure may have been fortuitous. As reported in this story by Olivia Katrandjian at ABC News, “Two forecasted storms are expected to make air travel rough across parts of the country, causing delays and cancellations at airports.”

I can’t imagine that it will be any easier driving. Rain has almost the same effect on Maryland drivers as snow.

Be careful out there.
