Cold weather has forced thousands of flights to be cancelled across the U.S., 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. More than 400 departures have been cancelled Sunday. And the airport is still trying to clear out thousands of travelers who have been sleeping at the terminals or in nearby hotels 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.
