Eric Scott spent 46 hours in airports or on airplanes.
The 20-year-old was trying to get home to Adel from a semester in London when weather forced airlines all over Europe to delay and cancel flights.
“I had to sleep in line so I could leave the next morning,” Scott said. “I slept on the linoleum with hundreds of people surrounding me.”
And Scott, a Central College student who made it back to Adel on Saturday, may be one of the lucky ones.
