The metro is blanketed in snow, as the first blizzard of the year brings along with it gusting winds and slick streets. Despite the potential for accidents, most people seemed to navigate streets with no major problems.

While law enforcement warn people to stay indoors die-hard Bluejays fans braved the elements to watch Creighton take on Tulsa at the CenturyLink Center.

Joe Finnegan came to enjoy the game with his six-year-old son Nate.

“It’s not too bad yet I guess," says Finnegan. "The heavier stuff is coming in later. We live in the eastern part of the city so it was easier for us to get down here. I think living on the west side it might be tougher.”

Kristina Wolf has season tickets to the game. She says she and her boyfriend had no problems arriving downtown.

“It wasn't so bad as long as careful and cautious just give yourself plenty of time to stop and you'll be fine.”

But with high winds and snow continuing overnight wolf expects leaving the game won't be so easy.

“I’m expecting to be picked out front by my boyfriend I'm not walking in this and driving is going to be very slow,” says Wolf.

While there haven't been any major traffic accidents associated with the snow, it has impacted flights. At Eppley Airfield 23 flights were canceled Wednesday night. As a reminder, it's important to check with your airline frequently for the latest updates.
