Winter weather across the country is causing some travel problems.

Hundreds of flights have been canceled or delayed.

Tulsa International has had travelers' flights delayed and canceled, and people were frustrated.

"I'm going to Dallas, and I'm delayed 2 hours and 25 minutes as of now," Ashely Waynick said she is trying to get home and is tired of playing the waiting game.

"It's very frustrating. It's OK if it's delayed, but don't make me be here an hour before my original flight"

Most the flights that have been delayed or have been canceled are any flights going through Chicago.

"I just want to get home," said Waynick.

Other travelers had their flights canceled. Rita O'Dwyer was one of them.

"We waited, waited, waited kept wondering why the line was so long. Finally we get up there and find out we aren't going to make it back to Baltimore," O'Dwyer said.

Although O'Dwyer's flight was canceled, she found a silver lining, "Fortunately I have family and my grandkids so, if I'd been at hotel it would have been a lot more frustrating," O'Dwyer said.

The winter storm can last the next couple days, which will cause even more flights to be delayed and canceled. If you are traveling the next couple days, make sure you keep updated with your flight status.
