FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A winter storm moved from the Panhandle
and dumped up to nine inches of snow on North Texas.

It created slick roads that sent some school buses into ditches and hundreds of cars off the roads.

The Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport canceled about 500 departing flights - about half of its scheduled departures.

Another 60 flights scheduled for tomorrow morning also were canceled, most because the scheduled aircraft were out of position, officials said.

American Airlines canceled all flights scheduled to arrive or depart after 3 p.m. today American Eagle and other airlines were operating with limited flight schedules.
The cold front with light rain and snow flurries was expected to
move into parts of Southeast Texas tomorrow.
