Cold weather has forced thousands of flights to be cancelled across the country, leaving many travelers frustrated for yet another day.

The tracking website Flightaware.com estimates 2,197 flights were cancelled nationwide as of Sunday afternoon. That follows two days of similarly difficult travel conditions.

Cold weather is impacting areas across the country but is hitting the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport particularly hard. There are more than 400 departures cancelled for the day there. And the airport is still trying to clear out thousands of travelers who have been sleeping at the terminal or in nearby airports waiting for a flight out since Thursday night.

To ease the pain, the airport has been giving away free coffee, sandwiches and other treats. It also has brought in entertainment to the terminals.
