Hurricane Irene did a number on transportation through the Northeast. Here in Boston Amtrak halted service and between Sunday and Monday about 1,200 flights were canceled at Logan International Airport.
So what does that mean for stranded passengers? My pal Katie Johnston took a look to learn the fates of the unfortunates and discovered this:
..stranded travelers flocked to buses yesterday to get out of Boston.
Lines snaked around the terminal in South Station as passengers tried to snag a seat on BoltBus, Peter Pan, Lucky Star, and other bus lines that resumed operations yesterday after canceling service over the weekend.
She also reported that travel "was still snarled yesterday, and transportation officials said it would probably take another few days to work through the backlog of canceled flights and trains.''
Quite the mese. Here's the rest of her story.
