Travel A Nightmare At Reagan National

A parade of bulldozers and dump trucks are trying to clear the runways of snow. But with visibility near zero, nearly 100 flights have been canceled, and that number could rise as the day goes on.

Christopher Lebeau, an Army private from New Orleans, tried to catch an earlier flight last night, but he couldn't make it. Then he discovered he couldn't get back to his base at Fort Belvoir.

"I actually slept in this little hallway that they have where you watch planes and whatnot," says Lebeau.

All runways are currently closed at Reagan National and BWI. At Dulles Airport, most flights are canceled as well.
