JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- All JetBlue operations at JFK, LaGuardia, Newark and Boston are shut down for 17 hours to rest its crew and equipment after dozens of weather delays.

Those delays and cancellations continue to ripple across the nation and at Jacksonville International Airport, frustration is written on Ajibade Dosunmu's face.

"We're stuck right now. We're trying to get home, basically," said Dosunmu.

The snowstorm to the north forced the cancellation of his family's flight home to Lagos, Nigeria.

"My daughter has to get to school on Wednesday. Now, she can't get to school on Wednesday right now," said Dosunmu.

He said they're stuck in Jacksonville for two days.

"What am I going to do. I've dropped off the car rental," Dosunmu said. "I'm far spent. My card is maxed out."

More than 1,500 flights were cancelled Monday. A large storm dumped snow across the nation and a deep freeze is gripping parts of the nation causing cascading effects.

Meteorologist Tim Deegan says some spots in the U.S. could see cold they haven't felt in 40 years. The Dosunmu family just wants to get home.

"I'm just frustrated right now," he says.
