Homeward Bound: Travelers Hit I-20

ODESSA- The snow didn't stop holiday travelers but for some it did spell delays early in the day.
 
"I was concerned with the weather I wanted to make sure there wasn't a lot of ice," said David Bauchert, who left four hours later than expected while driving with his family from El Paso to Dallas, "We were trying to watch the newscast to find out; traffic reports and weather conditions, and it looked like the storm was headed East so we decided to wait a little bit."

A winter storm salted the basin Saturday night and Sunday morning, but most who passed through on I-20 said the conditions weren't that bad.

"It hasn't been bad at all. It's been wet but the bridges and over passes are all fine so we really haven't had any problems," said Bauchert.

Dave Green and his wife and kids traveled from El Paso to Arlington, the didn't hit any trouble after Van Horn. His grandson Jayden played in the snow as the family filled up the cars.

"Through Sierra Blanca, it was really sloppy, but not icy. There was a lot of snow on the sides, but the roads were clear but wet," he said.

Another traveler headed through Midland said he was surprised by all the snow in Big Bend, but didn't hit any delays.

"I was hoping it would be clear. It's been pretty good," said Tino Aranda who drove through Midland on his way to Dallas.
