The fog, snow, and ice has definitely put a damper on the weekend commute forcing a total of 49 car accidents. But this weather is also causing problems for another type of commute, as canceled flights have left hundreds of air travelers stranded.
When gazing at the arrival and departure board, it's the word you never want to see next to your flight: canceled.
"We're flying into Minneapolis and from there to San Francisco trying to get a little sun which doesn't seem to be around here much lately so now we're delayed a day." Said Kris Strohfus.
Snow and ice is making its way through the Midwest forcing even the most aggressive air commuter to stop dead in their tracks.
"I drove up here from Sioux City because they didn't have any flights coming out of there so I drove up here and I was wondering the whole way if we were to make it, I said there's no way there to let this plane land so we got in here got on the way through security and had to come back down and get it all started over again for tomorrow." Said Blaine Davis.
Many travelers like Davis will end up missing a day of work or a few meetings. But for those like Strohfus, their vacation plans are at the mercy of mother nature and they still don't know when they'll make it out west.
"Well they said it depends on the weather so yeah we might have a three-day vacation instead of our five or six day we were originally planning." Said Strohfus.
Both travelers are a little disappointed but say it's just one frustrating part of air travel and sometimes you just have to roll with the punches.
"Oh I'll just go to the hotel, sit back and relax, watch TV." Said Davis.
"We'll hang out Sioux Falls, Sioux Falls is good right?" said Strohfus.
Several flights Monday afternoon were canceled due to conditions in Minneapolis and Chicago. However, with the winter weather rapidly getting worse here in Sioux Falls, you may want to double check your flight status heading into Tuesday.
