DETROIT (AP) — Chilly winds and snow flurries were greeting thousands of Michigan travelers as they headed home after spending the Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends.
The long Thanksgiving weekend saw temperatures push into the 60s in places, but Michigan got a preview of winter on Sunday, with afternoon readings in 20s and 30s and swirling snow in places.
AAA Michigan has estimated that about 1.3 million state residents were planning to travel 50 miles or more during this year's Thanksgiving period, and cars were jamming the curbside pickup and drop-off gates at Detroit Metropolitan Airport on Sunday.
The Megabus low-cost travel network was running full buses from Detroit's Rosa Parks Transit Center.
Forty-one-year-old Chicago actor Meg Elliott says she enjoyed the ride and the visit to Cornell University classmates in Rochester.
