Re: Snow? 2012

It's early March and there are gnats everywhere. This is going to be a brutal summer for being outside. Need some cold snaps to kill these bastard bugs!

Same with allergies and that sort of thing. I haven't been sick sick in around 15 years but I do get allergies and colds, and this winter was one of the worst for me. As warm as it was I felt like I was always stuffed up and congested. This spring might be brutal!

I mean, 80 freaking degrees in DC in the second week of March? Bonkers.

Re: Snow? 2012

I have flies at my house already!


I'm not complaining though, it's gorgeous outside. I hate winter.

Re: Snow? 2012

My snowboarding trip just got cancelled for this weekend due to end of season arriving sooner than expected in WV. Damn this unseasonably non-wintery winter. And boo for unrefundable motel deposits that make you pay full price in advance.

I worked for Marriott for ten years in various management roles. If yo dispute that charge with your credit card company I am 99% confident you will get it refunded.

the reason being the hotel has to prove that they held that room for yo uall night and there was no other opportunity for them to rent it. Which is near impossible to prove.

They are called GNS (guarantee no shows) and normally never hold water if disputed.

Re: Snow? 2012

This has been a weird winter indeed. I am only 27 years old, I have lived in NoVA all my life, and I cannot remember once where it started getting this warm in late February - March. We had temperatures in the 70's in February here in Winchester, and just last weekend I mowed my lawn for the very first time this season. I have never remembered ever mowing grass in March.

And it wasn't just knocking down weeds either. Grass was grown up thick and green, and with the weather it could have just as easily passed for July or August if someone had taken a picture. Trees in my yard in full bloom, etc... very weird.

Thanks for the advice. Does it matter when I call them? The room is booked for tonight but it got charged to my card weeks ago.

I'm guessing he used one of the travel sites (Orbitz, Hotels.com, etc). Once they have your money, they have it. No refunds, generally, when dealing with the discount sites.

The sooner the better just do it nothing to lose. Let me know if it worked. Either play dumb or come up with a sad story.

That is exactly what they want you to think.

I looked up the best deals on Trip Advisor and other sites, but I booked the room through Super8.com. It is posted on their website that they don't do refunds for cancellations, but I figured since Timberline has 100% snowmaking capabilities there wasn't going to be any way they would be closed. Just bad luck that bad weather hit this weekend and they decided to shut it down early, that was something I didn't anticipate when I booked 3 weeks ago.

Anyways, I called my bank already today and disputed it, so the charge was dropped. Thanks again for the advice mredskins, it definitely came in handy and saved me some coin.
