If you were a kid with a sled in Duryea, Saturday's snow was nothing but fun.

However, for the countless holiday travelers who were slipping and sliding on Northeast Pennsylvania highways, the journey was miserable.

In Dupont we met Conneticut residents Jordan, Danny, and Devon moments after a snowy freeway nearly got the best of them.

"We spun out. It was scary," said Jordan.

While the close call left them shaken, they said the trip from Connecticut to Hazelton is still worth it for one special reason. Three girls the trio is looking forward to seeing.

The front of Ron DePeyster's RV looks like it ran into a glacier, but he is bound and determined to continue with his trip from New York State to Florida.

"There are a lot of people out there and cars all over the ditch," said DePeyster.

Speaking of Florida, near I-81 we also met Claude Castonguay who started his trip near Palm Beach and is braving the highways all the way to Quebec City.

"It's New Year's, I want to be with friends, relatives, we are making the trip, enjoying the snow, we got some good tires and away we go," said Castonguay.
