SPOKANE -- It was business as usual at Spokane International Airport Monday.
There were few cancellations and most arrivals and departures were on time.
Spokane has no direct flights to the East Coast. People traveling back east must go through hubs like Denver or Minneapolis first, and connect from there.
Several people were prepared for long waits and frustrations, but traveling Monday turned out to be easier than they would have guessed because passengers were grounded in other parts of the country.
Nationwide, 13,000 flights have been cancelled due to the storm.
