RUTHERFORD COUNTY, Tenn. - Winter weather in Texas turns the trip home into a nightmare for a Rutherford County couple. Noona Tilton and her husband went to Cancun, Mexico for a little r&r last week. They started home at 3am Sunday morning, but ran into an ice storm in Dallas and just got back to the Midstate a few hours ago. Tilton tells us they were trapped in Dallas with no way to get out and no warm clothes Sunday. Today, they made it to Houston and then to Atlanta before finally getting a flight back to Nashville late this afternoon. Tilton says she's looking forward to sleeping in her own bed tonight and feels bad for the thousands of people who are still trying to get home. Nashville International is seeing its share of delays tonight. So far, flights coming in from out West and the Atlantic Coast are the most likely to be affected.
