Winter Storm Hercules Dumps Snow on Midwest, Northeast
When the weather at home is cold and snowy, travelers take to the seas to get out of town and head to somewhere warm. Imagine the surprise to Cunard Line Queen Mary 2 passengers as they embarked their ship in New York on January 3rd and found the scene above.
Queen Mary 2 arrived in New York ahead of schedule in order to avoid the worst part of the storm. She didn't sail until after midnight to allow sufficient time for passengers to embark the vessel. According to the line, the ship is still expected to arrive in Southampton, England on time January 10th.
