No change of the dollar rate working my advantage!

Weather is looking chilly. It's actually in that range of "Do I take the really thick coat or not?"

Seems to be down to -5 at night, but +3 or +5 during the day.

I took the really thick coat last time and didn't need it all the time, but really liked having it at some points. The thing is - it weighs an absolute ton so leaving it behind does have advantages!

Sounds like a good trip so far. We did the Intrepid last time we went to NY. Hubby loved it, me, it was a bit meh, but then I'm not into space travel or boats or planes(unless they are taking me on holiday). I'm in a quandary about the coat situation too. As you can see we go to NY next month and when I last went in February they had about 3ft of snow the day before we arrived. I'm thinking big coat so far, then I can always buy a new thinner one when we go to Jersey Garden Malls!
You've inspired me to start planning, as so far all I do is look at Instagram pictures of nice food to eat in NY. I've got hundreds of restaurants and bars I want to try and nothing else planned lol. Although I did watch a couple of YouTube vids yesterday which were walking through Manhattan and around the area we are staying(Hell's Kitchen - not far from the Intrepid). Have a fantastic time, looking forward to reading the trippy

Coats are struggle. DW is wanting to take 3...

If it comes to it we can take a 3rd case just for coats and shoes, as we are going Club World. The issue with that is the transfer says 2 cases only. It could probably fit between us on the back seat, but I worry about these sorts of things

Looking at it now it seems that some days will have definitely no need for it, but the later days in our trip might see it peak at a max of -4 ... It also doesn't help that different websites give vastly different forecasts!

We had snow the day before we went last time too - it was lovely walking (slithering!) around Central Park all covered in it.

I also go on holiday for food reasons! I've been craving some proper American pancakes for ages, so that will be breakfast day 1!

I'm not sure how I missed this! Sounds like you will both have a fabulous time and how amazing to fly Business, I'm not jealous at all . You must go to Tick Tock Diner if you haven't been before, they do the BEST French toast!
Look forward to reading all about it on your return. Oh and I say take the third case, I'm a 'what if' kinda gal!
