Traveling is fun except when you get stuck in a pile of snow. Winter is a great weather for those who love to play in the snow and settle their differences over a snow fight. But just as it is fun to think of the wonderful snow, so also it can be a pain in the butt when you get in a row of multiple canceled flights. It can be so annoying and with a thick layer of snow on the ground, driving my not be the best option too. These super forces beyond our control do occur but what would you do if you find yourself such a fix? The following tips would be very helpful.
1. Make friends
Busy schedules do not always allow us to look sideways. A canceled flight in an airport would seem like slowing down a movie. Instead of screaming and looking for who you would take out your frustration on, why not say a simple hi to the person sitting next to you and begin a conversation? You will notice how lighter your mood will be when you do. Those situations also offer good opportunities to expand you contacts. You can never tell how influential the person sitting next to you is.
2. Listen to weather forecast
Daily weather forecast mind be the smartest way to avoid getting stuck in the first place. If you listen to weather forecast and anything they say suggests heavy snow, then, you will need to begin to plan ahead. Like they say, he who fails to plan plans to fail.
3. Carry power banks
It is already bad enough that you got stuck in the airport because your flight was canceled but what would make the situation worse will be when you phone battery also claps, cutting you off from family and friends. Getting a socket to charge in the airport may be a heck of a hassle so it would always be good if you have something to fall back on.
4. Shed the excess weight
Excess weight is not only bad for health but will make you ditch some of the clothes you so desired. Driving when there is heavy snow on the road has been the cause of severe accidents. Instead of using your car, better walk. That short walk is healthy for your weight and general health. It may also be the only time you would get to play in the snow.
5. Be cautious about your safety
Why would you even dare to drive when the road is all covered up with snow? Snow makes the tyres slippery and it may be hard to keep your grip on the wheels. There have been many documented cases of accident because of this. When there is snow, it is better not to drive at all.
6. Avoid booking for accommodation in your destination
An hour cancelation may stretch into days. What if you now book for accommodation and ends up not making it to the scheduled date and it turns out the hotel does not allow for refund? It would have be a gruesome waste of money.
