PORTLAND -- Flights to the Northeast were starting to get back to normal at PDX Saturday evening with many stranded passengers finding alternate ways to get home.

Airports in New York have been opening back up after the New England blizzard that dumped snow across the Northeast.

Some passenger opted to fly in to New York and drive to their destinations further north.

Incoming and outgoing flights were canceled Friday at PDX as the East Coast braced for a major blizzard.
