    (NECN: Tom Langford) - At Logan Airport in Boston, an army of snowplows pushes and shove's at the new fallen snow.

    Technically, the airport has been open all day, but the storm forced the cancellation of more than 100 flights. Many others were delayed.

    "Most of the airlines have told us that they're trying to rebook or reschedule people on those flights later this afternoon. We understand it's going to clear up around 1 p.m.," said airport spokesman Phil Orlandella. "And most of the airlines have told us that they'll have a full compliment of flights this afternoon."

    Of course, in order to fly, you first had to get to the airport, and getting around anywhere in the Boston area has been slow, as snow and slush clog roads and highways.

    Plows did their best to move it away, but with the storm coming during the morning rush hour, plowing around all the cars and people was difficult.

    So far, this is turning out to be a snowy winter. Of course, you can always jump on a plane and fly somewhere warm, at least you can once things at the airport get back to normal again.

    "Check with your airlines," said Orlandella "They have a phone, they have computers, they have websites, they have all that."
