Forecasters say it could be a blizzard for the history books -- and it's already shut down air travel in the Northeast.
Today thousands of planes are grounded. Northern Virginia resident Amanda Lugo tells WFLS she is among those affected. She was set to fly out to Boston Friday, but her flight was canceled on Thursday afternoon.
Lugo was traveling for pleasure and had the chance to reschedule her trip for next week. Her carrier, Jet Blue, allowed those affected to cancel themselves without penalty or rebook their trips. She was on the phone for several hours making it happen though.
Many others were not so lucky and are stranded in airports.
