It's supposed to be the most wonderful time of year -- but not if you've got to travel this holiday season -- 'cause extreme weather has rocked the U.S. and canceled thousands of flights in the process.
Parts of the country have experienced everything from hurricane-strength winds to blizzards and a bomb cyclone ... causing power outages in nearly 1.5 million homes.
The Midwest has been hit hard with freezing cold weather, and some of those temperatures are said to get even colder than temps on Mars!!!
The winter weather has caused nearly 2/3 of the U.S. to be placed under a winter weather alert.
Of course, this weather isn't ideal for folks trying to get home for the holidays ... more than 3,000 flights have been already been delayed or canceled around the country on Friday morning alone.
It’s so cold the #Chicago river is steaming. (Temperature -9°, Windchill -40°) @WGNNews pic.twitter.com/ZqeQ73NlRU— Mike Lowe (@MikeLoweReports) December 23, 2022 @MikeLoweReports
From NYC to Chicago the winter weather is wreaking havoc in the U.S. ... and the worst is supposedly still to come.
In Seattle, people were taking to the streets to ice skate during one of the worst ice storms the city has seen in years.
Stay safe out there!!!
