December 2, 2008 12:22:43 AM PST
For Vanessa Jimenez it's an unpleasant re-run of the night before ... She's trying to get her parents and grandmother on a flight to Mexico.Sunday nights flight was cancelled and passengers were bused to San Francisco. "But since my grandma has knee problems and it's kind of hard for her to sit all the way on the bus to San Francisco so, we cancelled the flight and we're trying it again but it seems like its going to be the same problem." She said.

After dark, planes weren't moving. The big question for those at the airport is, what to do next?

Jimenez put it this way: "We live like an hour away from here but I mean all the way over here it's foggy, so it's kind of like, should we leave, should we not leave."

Driving conditions are not good. Poor visibility may have contributed to a traffic accident not far from the airport two people were injured, but not seriously. The Highway Patrol is monitoring area highways and providing pace cars whenever visibility dips below 5 hundred feet.
