JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- At Jacksonville International Airport, the passengers are streaming in from their flights.

"When they get off the plane, it's nice to see their smiles," said musician Eric Wendorf.

The ones who aren't smiling? People who are stuck in Jacksonville because of the weather in the northeast.

"If this is the place to be stuck at, this is a nice place to be stuck"

Wendorf is a musician who plays music at JIA.

The pluck of his ukulele or the wail of his didgeridoo fill the halls.

He understands that tensions and frustrations are inching upward because thousands of flights nationwide are cancelled, including dozens across the sunshine state.

"I hope I'm easing them up," he said. Up like an airplane as he tries to lift the spirits of travelers

"I hope I'm making them happier."
