Holiday Travel Not as Bad as Predicted...So Far

Trains and Planes have been sold out. We've seen a 1.5 percent increase in people who plan to drive over 50 miles from last year.

Yet, for some reason, traffic has been surprisingly decent for travelers...whether by plane, train, or automobile.

While there are definitely crowds of people, it hasn't been the mad rush of insanity that many prognosticators, well, evidenced in the article I cited above.

"I haven't found the madhouse I thought I would find," Lou Lecalsey, 68, said at Philadelphia International Airport as he waited for a flight home to Green Bay, Wis., after seeing his new granddaughter in Lancaster, Pa.

Encouraging news, as all kinds of preparations were made for what is supposed to be the busiest Thanksgiving travel season ever.
