You could call it the collective sigh of relief heard up and down the east coast. As millions of Americans raced across the country – through crowds, rain and snow – to get their loved ones in time for the holidays.
There were some inconveniences, but no major delays across the country, CNN's Margaret Conley reports.
Airports like LaGuardia in New York City pulled out all the stops to help keep travelers' spirits high and relieve stress.
For those who made the journey by car, there was heavy snow in states like Michigan and Ohio.
And for train travelers on the east coast, they were momentarily stalled right at rush hour.
Yet, as the busiest travel day of the year drew to a close, many families may have been delayed, but were eventually reunited.
