DENVER -- About 156,000 people passed through Denver International Airport on the day before Thanksgiving.

Things seemed to go very well for nearly all of those air travelers.

A few ran into problems because of a strong storm in the northeastern United States, but that was about the extent of the problems.

The same could be said for travel on Colorado roads. 700,000 Coloradans are expected to drive more than 50 miles to travel for the long Thanksgiving Holiday weekend.

There is plenty of snow in the mountains and there were some traffic issues Wednesday morning for drivers in the High Country. But by the afternoon and evening, things were moving very smoothly.
