JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Tuesday's wild weather meant lots of delays on the first coast, in the air and on the ground.

Interstate 95 in Jacksonville and points north saw rain for most of the day. The storm is expected to continue to dump rain up the east coast. That's concerning for drivers like Sylvano Sabucco. He's driving from New Smyrna Beach to Canada.

"It's wet, and I guess on my way home I'm gonna find rain, and wet snow," Sabucco said.

Sabucco says when you're on the road in bad weather with millions of people, it's best to stay patient.

"Common sense, drive slowly, keep your distance," he said.

At Jacksonville International Airport, not many delays for people headed out of state for Thanksgiving. However, other big cities have had flights delayed for most of Tuesday. Cities like Atlanta, Norfolk, Washington D.C, and New York all saw flights delayed, even cancelled.

Loraine Perry is hoping to get to Seattle for Thanksgiving.  She said despite her best planning, Mother Nature may throw a wrench in her plans.

"I think it's going to play a big part," Perry said. "I hope not too big but I think it's going to play a big part."

Other passengers, like Jeff McCullough said he's going with the flow.

"I figure whenever you have an airline ticket in your hand you no longer have any control over what's going to happen," McCullough said. "It could be weather, it could be mechanical, you just have to get in travel mode, get your mind set for it."

AAA said more than 35 million of us will hit the road this Thanksgiving.  Meanwhile, millions more are expected to fly.
