Storm means slow start for commuters

Whether you were in a car, waiting for a bus or a plane, Wednesday morning started with delays and cancellations for commuters.

"We were scheduled to go out on an 8 a.m. flight (Wednesday) morning. It was canceled last night," said Colleen Cochrane.

At T.F. Green Airport in Warwick, nearly all arriving and departing flights on Wednesday are on schedule. Almost two dozen were canceled Wednesday morning.

Cochrane spent the morning rescheduling her trip.

"The only problem was my husband didn't get a seat assignment. So we have to hope for a volunteer. Otherwise, we'll be waiting some more," she said.

For the most part, roads in Rhode Island were slow but passable.

Most drivers said they saw more plows than usual on the roadways. They also said plow trucks seemed more prepared.

Joe Baker of the Rhode Island Department of Transportation told NBC 10 they've not only been able to save money with new technology on snow plows, they're also aiming to be more efficient each storm.
