As the northeastern United States begin to see the first traces of what is being touted as a blizzard of historic proportions, snow-storm logistics have begun to occupy minds. How much food to stock up on? Will it be possible to drive home from work? And—most importantly, of course—will the Grammy Awards, taking place this Sunday, Feb. 10, go off as planned?
Even though the Grammys will take place in Los Angeles—along with a handful of other weekend fêtes, including the American Society of Cinematographers Awards and the Sci-Tech Oscars—those who planned to travel from the East Coast to the West may find their flights among the estimated 4,000 that The Guardian reports have been cancelled already. The Hollywood Reporter names no names, but reports that the wrenches have already been thrown into the works of many music insiders’ plans.
Meanwhile, in New York, the cultural world has already felt the impact. New York’s Fashion Week for Fall/Winter 2013—which just began on Feb. 7—has already had one show rescheduled due to weather, Marc Jacobs’ planned Feb. 11 presentation. Women’s Wear Daily reports that his show will now take place on Feb. 14, and that the reason for the change was the inability to receive deliveries of bags, shoes and fabrics until after the show was scheduled to take place.
As for television, The Hollywood Reporter advises that this week’s Justin-Bieber-centric Saturday Night Live and a Friday episode of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon are both scheduled to tape in New York City this weekend; no word on whether the weather will affect those episodes. Audience members, however, will have to adjust their plans, as SPIN reports: standby tickets to see the Biebs will be handed out Friday evening rather than Saturday morning.
And as for Bieber himself, a few inches—even feet—of snow is no big deal:
