Boston Logan Airport struggles to open

The northeastern United States is just beginning to dig itself out from the massive blizzard that moved through the region overnight February 7-8, while airports are scrambling to clear snow and reopen. Travel delays and stranded passengers are rife in the northeast. 

 
One of the worst hit is Boston's Logan Airport (BOS).
 
Logan International Airport will not have a runway open until at least 11 p.m. on February 9. Airport officials pulled crews off the airport tarmac for five hours overnight due to whiteout conditions, causing the snow to pile up. “It’s very tough going and there’s still challenging conditions,” said Matthew Brelis, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Port Authority, which runs Logan Airport.
