Travelers are concerned as flights at Lambert Airport have been postponed again amid an arctic breeze

ST. LOUIS – For the second straight day of cold weather, delays and cancellations piled up at St. Louis Lambert International Airport.

Just two days before Christmas, many people were anxiously waiting on benches throughout the airport, trying to reach loved ones for the holiday season.

“We were supposed to fly at 10am and now we fly at 8pm and we got here at 7am [a.m.]said Jose Ovideo and Ysibel Revilla.

“My cell phone was texting me like, ‘Oh, your flight to Chicago has been cancelled,’ ‘Your flight to Denver has been cancelled,’ and here we are, ‘Your flight to Seattle has been cancelled,'” Kaiyue Jaing said.

She said her first booked flight was canceled as she headed to the airport for departure.

Out on the freeways, truckers said the roads were once again difficult.

“Between Wyoming shutting down the whole state, which they do when there’s such high winds, and then the snow blowing and everything to protect the truck drivers, they just shut it down. They don’t like to see us on the side of the road any more than we do,” said Billy Nelson.

She followed the storm all the way from Idaho and said icy roads meant constantly finding alternate routes to get to her stop in Kentucky. She double checked all the gear before hitting the road again in the dangerously cold weather.

“Just make sure everything is up and running. Make sure your tires are okay. Check your hydraulic lines and keep your windshields clean. Extra wipers,” Nelson said.
