Filing in standing in line ready to board their their flights throughout the various destinations and he and his two and a half million people. Are expected to fly today sol today is one of the busiest days of the season and so far here at dallas' love field we haven't seen any. Major delays or cancellations but I can tell you that the situation. Is expected to change and there's a real concerned that. As this a massive winter storm works its way from the west. Two of the east we could see particular. It delays or perhaps cancellations at some of them a hub cities throughout the country. And that is something can as we are watching very closely today and certainly hoping for the travelers here that the things will stay smooth for them.
