^ Basically this. I'm guilty when planning faraway trips but its pointless because I know it can and will change. If you're planning on going to any park this time of year, just accept that anything is possible an its best to not worry about it til a few days before, especially parks in the Northeast this time of year because its so all over the place. The last few weeks we've had a succession of annoying snowstorms and then beautiful sunny days will temps in the 50s. Also, sometimes it snows in April.
I totally called that but I also don't really understand why they went with postponing opening weekend. I am hearing Jackson got 9-12 inches, but we got 7.5 here in Philly and its already rapidly melting and will continue to do so as its going up to almost 50 the next two days. Definitely going to be gone by Saturday.
I think the biggest issue, just a guess, is the fact that the rides didn't have enough time to do thorough testing. Just because the weather will be ok this weekend doesn't mean all the rides are ready to go since they haven't exactly had the best weather the last few weeks for testing purposes. Yes I know a lot of the rides ran in 15 degree temperatures for HITP but it's not ideal for first runs I would think.
