Some people are taking extreme measures to get around the blizzard travel backlog on the East Coast.One woman and her five children were in Florida, trying to get back to New York City.

All the flights were canceled, so they took a flight to Buffalo and then hired a taxi to drive to New York City.

The cost? $900.

With the dangerous weather, the driver was only able to go 30 miles per hour, so it took them more than 12 hours to get there.
