Storm could snarl holiday travel
CHICAGO (MarketWatch) — A winter storm that has been dumping snow on the Sierras, much to the enjoyment of ski-area operators, is heading east and could snarl travel during the busy Christmas week, the Weather Channel reports. A white holiday is expected in parts of Oklahoma and Texas as the storm moves across the heartland before striking the Atlantic seaboard and New England by Friday. On the way, it is expected to slow down highway traffic and lead to flight cancellations at major hub airports including Chicago’s O’Hare International.
