That means many people who are trying to get home to the east coast have to go with Plan B this weekend which is spending some extra time in Cleveland.

"It's a nice town," said Greg Williams, who is trying to get back home to New York.

Several passengers tell Fox 8 they will be staying in town for a couple of days.

"There is plenty to do here, I'm just going to get a hotel and sit it out," said Peter Hefferan, who is trying to get to New Jersey.

Still, many flights to places like New York, Newark, Philadelphia are just full out cancelled due to the weather.

United Airlines announced they will not operate Saturday and Sunday service at Washington metro area airports and expect to gradually resume service on Monday.
