Indianapolis International Airport reported a handful of flight delays and cancellations, primarily to Texas and the East Coast. But the bigger issue for many travelers was deicing. Some passengers reported waiting more than 90 minutes on the tarmac for their planes to be deiced.

The storm was expected to leave behind frigid air with highs in the teens and 20s over coming days.

The weather had some unexpected benefits for Chris Clifford, director of operations for St. Elmo’s Steakhouse in Indianapolis who was coordinating a contest as part of the Big Ten championship.

About a dozen people were scheduled Saturday to see how many of the restaurant’s signature shrimp cocktails they could down.

With the predicted temperatures, “We don’t have to ice the shrimp down,” Clifford said.------Associated Press writer Tom Davies contributed to this report.
