Weather causes weekend headaches
The severe storms that rolled through Sunday knocked out power to thousands and caused delays and
cancelations for travelers.
 
Certainly was not a day to be out.  Some told ABC2 that the weather was a lot less serous than they originally thought it would be.
 
Still, the conditions caused some headaches throughout the area.
 
From downed power lines and trees, to closed roads.  Sunday's storm certainly slowed folks down.
 
BGE could be seen out in force trying to get the lights back on for people who lost power.
 
One customer said he was only in the dark for about 1.5 hours.
 
In Baltimore County, a power line actually came down and burned the grass below causing road closures in the area.
 
And it was no picnic for those hitting the friendly skies either.
 
Many people at Baltimore-Washington International Airport took considerably longer to get to their final destination.
 
Traveling for business and I'm traveling a day ahead of time and I think they held us 50 minutes in Charlotte and then they held us 65 miles south of Baltimore," said traveler Mark Verhuien.
 
And he's not alone.
 
"I left Toronto Canada but we were delayed for two hours because of the storm coming in." said Deb Templeton."
 
Karen Hammond is just happy to be home.
 
"We were delayed from Charlotte probably a good hour or more on the tarmac." 
 
Not what you want to hear when you're trying to get home but travelers took it in stride.
 
"We had a good pilot and we got here," said Hammond.
