Widespread snow brings travel to a halt.
Domainers heading to Domainer Mardi Gras in New Orleans are facing a big obstacle: lots and lots of snow.
Domain Name attorney John Berryhill had to call it quits after the Philadelphia airport shut down. “It is really difficult to describe the weather situation here,” Berryhill wrote in an email. “I’ve lived here all my life and I’ve seen plenty of snow. This is an ungodly amount of snow.”
Lest you think Berryhill is just wimping out on Mardi Gras, he sent a few pictures along:
The first picture is of a deck covered in snow. The railing you see is waist high. In the second picture, Berryhill claims there’s a car underneath all of that snow.
With snow stretching up and down the east coast, travelers from Washington D.C. and New York are also facing challenges. Ken Hansen of Neustar is trying to make the trek from D.C. Both Berryhill and Hansen are on a panel I’m moderating tomorrow about new top level domain names. We’re going to try to work out a technical solution to include any panelists who can’t make it.
Believe it or not, even my trip from Austin to New Orleans won’t be easy. I have to fly through Dallas, where it’s currently snowing.
