Weather Delays Flights; Frustrates Travelers

On the busiest travel day of the year, inclimate weather caused hundreds of flights to be cancelled
Friday was one of the busiest travel days of the year.  All over the country people waited through delays just for domestic flights.  Flying into America made things even more difficult. 

Julie Adams had not seen her daughter in a year and a half.  Adams' daughter lives in Sweden, and was supposed to land in Lexington at 6 PM Thursday.  At noon Friday, she still had not landed. 

"They left a day and a half ago, stayed in Chicago last night, and are hopefully on their way to Lexington," said Julie Adams.

False alarm after false alarm, you could see the excitement build in Adams' face.

"Anxious for them to get here, it's going to be so nice to see them all, and give them all hugs and welcomes back to Kentucky," said Adams. 

Finally, 18-hours late, Adams daughter came down the escalator. 

"It's such a relief, we're so happy to be here.  We're only going to be here for two weeks, so every day is special," said Liz Adams, who landed in Lexington from Sweden.

Liz says when they left Stockholm, the snow was about 6-feet high, so it puzzled her how this storm in America caused so many travel problems.

"It was quite frustrating, it was very difficult, because they said oh, a big storm is coming.  You look out the window, and nothing was going on weather-wise, so we were kind of confused," said Adams.

The Adams are excited to be back in Kentucky, and Liz says they will spend the entire time with friends and family.
