Snow snags travel plans


ALBANY, N.Y. - The Nor'Easter caused a number travel complications in the northeast, including Albany, Saturday.

Drivers dealt with slippery roads on Saturday night and are expected to see the same conditions on Sunday morning.

One local couple said their ride to the airport was difficult in the snowy conditions.

"We've seen a couple cars off the road because we came over 20 but I think I'm going to go back on 90, little bit better taken care of," said Cathy and John Barrett of Pittsfield. "It's pretty tricky out there."

Earlier on Saturday, people stocked up on shovels, gas for generators, and rock salt.

True Value manager Jackie Myott said there are a few other things you should have ready.

"If you have anything for emergency heating that would be good to have, supply of batteries, flashlights just in case this storm turns into something major," said Myott.

As for those traveling by air at the Albany International Airport, things weren't going well, with a lot of cancellations and delays. The Barrett's came to pick up a friend but learned they probably won't see him until Sunday.

"He's been in line for an hour trying to get to the desk to find out what's going on and he has no idea and all of them are cancelled upstairs so we're going to head home," they said.

Debbie Steele was stuck in limbo Saturday night as she waits for her flight back to Texas.

"We've got a connecting flight in Washington and it hasn't gotten here it's delayed," explained Steele. "So we're on standby until it can get here."

Travelers are advised to check airline information on Sunday, before heading to the airport.
