Canceled flights at Logan means extended winter break for students

On Sunday, January 5 2014, Logan International Airport announced that many departing and arriving flights were at best delayed and in the worst case canceled because of the freezing rain in Southern New England and a snowstorm in the Midwest. Following the snowstorm that had already crippled the airport last week (even though it remained open), this new setback leaves travelers unable to complete their journey or even to begin it.

Whilst some feel powerless in front of this transportation chaos, others can rejoice at the thought that they will get one last gift this winter: that of an extended break!

The "near-blizzard", as it was called, has paralyzed the North-East region for days now, as a state of emergency was declared in New York and New Jersey, and hundreds of schools in New York and Boston were shut down. Preventing the good functioning of major infrastructures, the disturbance simultaneously allowed yongsters to enjoy extra time off sledding !
