NEW YORK (CBS 8) - People on the East Coast are digging themselves out after a record blizzard descended on the region last week, crippling traffic and creating flight delays across the country.
Among those stranded in New York City over the weekend was CBS News 8's writer Jodi Kennedy.
"I was supposed to fly out Sunday. They never rescheduled, they just canceled. When I called, was on hold for two-and-a-half hours when I finally gave up," said Kennedy.

Kennedy was in the Big Apple to spend time with her daughter who was scheduled to audition at Julliard and other colleges.

On Monday, Kennedy became stuck in Chicago where her flight was delayed. While in Chicago, she received an automated voicemail from American Airlines saying she had been re-booked on a flight Tuesday night.
