Travelers still dealing with aftermath of blackout

The lights may be back on, but travelers are still dealing with the aftermath of the Blackout of 2003.

On Saturday, hundreds of travelers stranded at Kennedy Airport since Thursday were able to re-direct their travel plans through Westchester County Airport. All of them seemed happy to see two magical little words light up next to their flight numbers; "on time."

As far as Metro North goes, riders breathed a long-awaited sigh of relief as the trains resumed normal service on Saturday. Commuters on the trains said it was bit uncomfortable because of crowds and no air conditioning, but most of them were just happy Metro North was back in service.
