Travelers, airline crews and even some airport workers didn’t let Friday’s winter storm keep them from having fun, even as the weather system grounded hundreds of flights.

As of 12:30 p.m. Saturday, at least 186 flights have been canceled at Charlotte Douglas International Airport. Some 140 flights were scrubbed on Friday, when Winter Storm Jasper dropped 1.9 inches of snow at the airport — a record amount for Jan. 21.

Passengers and airport workers took advantage of CLT’s free WiFi and shared their experiences on social media. Here are some of the best from Instagram:
