Travelers Stranded At Dulles

The Rush Hour Blizzard wreaked havoc on airports and roads alike, and Thursday morning stranded travelers are trying to get back to their destination.

The roads to Dulles were harbingers of what was to come at the airport. Like glaciers of tail lights, masses of cars inched along if they moved at all, many angled every which way and some in ditches along the side of the road.

"Lots of cars, crashed cars. I took a taxi for three hours to arrive from Arlington to Dulles...three hours," says traveler Anisa Fayed.

She is trying to get back to Tunis, but only an hour before takeoff, her flight was canceled.

Beth Parker pleaded with her airline to rebook her flight to Nairobi when the weather looked bad.

"They wouldn't do it, even with the weather advisory," she says.

The flight was canceled at the last minute, and she's spending the night at the airport.

"We're stuck, you can't get out," she says.

In a futile gesture, many airlines offered taxi vouchers, but more useful for travelers here, were the blankets.
