The snow conditions made travel especially difficult Wednesday, and air travel was no exception.
Crews spent hours clearing the runway and de-icing planes at the Charlottesville-Albemarle Airport. The only departing flight from the airport left for Chicago at 5 p.m.
"We're just doing some last-minute cleanup, doing some snow blowing on the taxiways and final cleanup with the broom, anticipating it might ice up tonight so we're just trying to get all that taken care of," said Bill Pahuta, CHO deputy executive director.
Most of the Chicago and Atlanta return flights are on for Wednesday night. Airport staffers say they believe all flights will go as scheduled Thursday.
