No flights are allowed in or out of John F. Kennedy Airport in New York City after a plane skidded off a runway earlier this morning. Nobody was injured, but that's a hell of a way to find out your asphalt's frozen.
Delta Flight 4100 from Toronto landed at 7:56 this morning, according to the New York Post, but a combination of freezing rain and ice that's been sitting for the past few days led to slippery conditions, to say the least.
