And here are a few travel tidbits for this first week of December, 2013…
++ Xperience Days: 2013 Best Christmas Gifts
Hope all arrived safely at their chosen destinations!
The first day of Winter 2013 may not be until 21 December, but you wouldn’t believe it based on low temperatures in many parts of the US this week. Just a hair under 20 degrees yesterday morning in NC and a little colder than that (according to my Mom,) in VA.
Precipitation that has already caused deaths throughout Texas, and snarled traffic in Oklahoma and Arkansas, is heading towards the East Coast – just in time for two of the biggest travel days of this year.
According to an airline industry group who tracks these things, the busiest travel day will be Sunday, with an estimated 2.56 million airline passengers. Wednesday is expected to be the second-busiest with 2.42 million passengers.
Ninety percent of travelers this week will drive, according to AAA, and an estimated 38.9 million people — 1.6 percent fewer than last year — are expected to drive 50 miles or more from their home.

As if holiday travel was not often stressful enough, storm and travel advisories are all over the map for this coming week. I can tell you this little “Artic” blast in North Carolina this morning is not particularly pleasant!
