Airport Delays

Heavy snow in the Northeast shut down airports in Washington D.C. and New York over the weekend, snarling airline traffic around the country.

"They're going to have to wait awhile for their souvenirs," he said.

Travelers are urged to contact their airlines to check on the status of their flights.
