Sunny skies allowed D.C. area airports to reopen Thursday after Wednesday's whiteout conditions.

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority is still urging travelers to call their airlines to confirm travel plans before driving to the airport, though all three airports have reopened in the D.C. area.
Rachel Mlinarchik is getting married this weekend. The wedding is in Costa Rica. Her flight was delayed this morning but she does expect to fly out today. She says shes stopped worrying about what she can't control.
"I cant do anything about it," she says. "The only important thing is that were there at this point."
John Scaramuzza is also headed out of the country; he had to fly into Charlotte last night and drive to D.C. in time to catch a flight out of Dulles today. He's going to the Virgin Islands. But Scaramuzza says he'd take a flight anywhere at this point.
"Frankly, Siberia would be okay, just to get away from here," he says.
The airport's authority expects round the clock snow removal to continue at Dulles at least through the end of Thursday.
