Half hr layover...will we/ luggage make it?

We never fly layover flights! Just rebooked our flight to Cabo a day early due to the expected Nemo snowstorm. No direct flights available. We will have a 1/2 hr layover in Houston (from Newark). Seems like we're cutting it very close. Since I have zero experience with doing this.. Am I correct to be worried? Maybe there's a chance we'll make it but will be shocked if our luggage does. Does anyone have any experience with this?

Happy to report we made it! Luckily we landed about 5 minutes early. Very close... Had to run like OJ through the airport. We landed in terminal C and were departing from terminal E. There were a lot of us runners so I think they would have held it. The luggage made it too! Feeling very lucky! Dodged the snowstorm and got an extra day of vacation. Thanks everyone for the tips and good wishes.

Glad to hear you made it. We took the flight from Cabo to Newark stopping in Houston for a layover with less than an hour to board plane last summer. Unfortunately we didn't make it. The problem flying home is you have to go through customs coming home, and that takes more time. The direct flights in and out of Newark are great but only happen on Sat, Sun & Mon...we try to plan our trips according to that. Have a great time and enjoy the sunshine...the snow, wind & cold are terrible in upstate NY :(
