BISMARCK — Holiday travel weather was starting out ideal in the Dakotas, but some air travelers were knocked off schedule by fog in Chicago.
Sixty-three-year-old Robert Johnson, of Fargo, was trying to get home to Houston but his arrival was pushed back about five hours to 10 p.m. He says the delay is out of his control so he was staying calm.
Johnson, who owns a cleaning service in Fargo, says he's looking forward to yams, homemade cornbread and rice dressing, which are "things I don't get up here."
Eighteen-year-old Katelyn Weimerskirch, a freshman at North Dakota State University, was headed from Fargo to East Dubuque, Ill., but feared she would get stuck in Chicago if her connecting flight goes on time.
Says Weimerskirch, "The weather is not doing me any favors."
