This &^%$# weather isn’t just trying my nerves, it’s also causing some problems at the airport- that and a construction project.

Several Southwest Airlines flights into Spokane were cancelled this morning due to a combination of poor visibility and the start of a project to extend the main runway.

Planes are being diverted to the airport’s cross-wind runway during construction, which will last until October. Southwest pilots had not yet been certified to land on the cross-wind runway during periods of low visibility and the weather reduced visibility to below three miles.
