Today's blizzard in the D.C. region is making life especially difficult for air travelers. This time of year, the airport is supposed to be bustling. But with dozens of canceled flights, Reagan National is looking more like a ghost town.

The airport is still technically open, but passengers on it's main concourse are few and far between. One of them is a young Army private who's trying to go home to New Orleans. He says he arrived here last night to beat the storm, but he couldn't get on a flight. Then, he couldn't make it back to his base at Fort Belvoir. The private says he ended up sleeping in a hallway in the airport.

With forecasts calling for more snow throughout the day, travelers here are just waiting and hoping.
