Weather forecasters are calling for a significant East Coast storm with major impacts to air and road travel tomorrow. So far, no flights have been canceled, but announcements could come today. Cities affected will include Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York City and Boston and most airlines are waving their change fees to the affected destination areas. Some 6-12 inches of snow is forecast from the southern Appalachians northeast to western and northern New England. If you can wait, travel conditions will improve on Thanksgiving Day in the Northeast, although some roads may still be snow-covered early in the day.

Suburban Chicago's 23-year-old Jorge Navarro Jr. was pulled over on a routine traffic stop. Like most people, Jorge hoped to get out of his ticket. Unlike most people, Jorge tried getting out of the ticket by calling 911 to say he heard eight gunshots and that a man had been shot and was lying on the ground a few blocks away. Several officers drove to the scene with their emergency lights on, but found no shooting had taken place. What they soon found was that Jorge had placed the 911 call and what turned out to be a routine traffic stop wound up with Jorge in jail on charges of having an open alcohol container, speeding, not wearing seat belts, driving without lights and improper lane usage, not to mention the false 911 call.
