The winter storm sweeping across the Midwest is causing a headache for many travelers headed to Chicago and O'Hare.
Ron Lawrence, traveling to Minneapolis said, "I'm a little anxious, a little worried about the weather. Just trying to stay calm."
Ron has been trying to fly out to Minneapolis for a business meeting since Tuesday morning but like many travelers his flight has been delayed several times.
"Just another waiting game. Mother Natures waiting game," Ron said.
Eric Niesen, whose flight was rerouted said,"I was looking at all the times and schedules and everything said it was cancelled so I had to go to the front desk and they had to reroute me."
As Chicago and Minneapolis get pummeled with nearly 10 inches of snow, flights in and out of both cities are delayed or cancelled. But airport officials in Appleton say they'll ensure travelers aren't stranded at the airport over night.
Marty Lenss, the Outagamie Co. Aiport Directpr said "We'll keep the building open and work with emergency management to bring cots if we need to do that but that's pretty unusual."
At Outagamie County Airport all flights to O'Hare say cancelled due to weather. A similar story at Austin Straubel.
Janon Furlong, who's trying to make a connecting flight in Chicago said "The weather in Chicago is bad and will be worse tonight. My fear is that that flight will be cancelled too."
Janon who's trying to visit her granddaughter in Denmark says she and her husband are giving up and driving to Chicago. But for others, all they can do is wait.
"It happens so you can't really be mad at the airports," said Nielsen.
