SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Winter isn't giving travelers a break from weather frustrations. The storm that hit at the end of last week delayed some passengers for days.

People trying to fly out of Hancock International Airport last Friday faced flight cancellations as snow hit the east coast.

We spoke to passengers who were finally getting ready to fly out Monday after their original flight was canceled on Saturday. They say the backlog of delays plus the latest system hitting the Midwest further complicated their departure, and more detours may be ahead.

"There's lots of rain in the northwest and they're also expecting a foot or two of snow in the Cascades, which would be where we're heading towards, so it's pretty intense," said Celia Kadushin, who was trying to get back home to Seattle, WA.

Flight tracking firm masFlight reports that storms have forced more than 75,000 flight cancellations since the beginning of the year.
