At one point on Friday, Alaska Airlines canceled all of their outbound flights from Seattle and Portland as the two cities tried to recover from an ice storm that left thick sheets coating both planes and runways. Traveling by road wasn’t much better as several parts of I-84 were closed due to the storm.

According to FlightAware, a live flight tracking website, there were 90 delays and 40 canceled flights at the Boise Airport on Friday, December 23. Christmas Eve hasn’t been much better.
