A jet in Pittsburgh got stuck in snow on the tarmac while another one in New York got itself mired in mud.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that an American Airlines flight arrived Wednesday evening during a storm, but then ran over a snow patch and got stuck. Airport spokeswoman JoAnn Jenny says workers tried for nearly two hours to tow the plane before deciding to bus passengers to the terminal.

On Thursday morning at MacArthur Airport in Ronkonkoma (rahn-KAHN'-koh-mah), N.Y., a Southwest Airlines jet bound for Tampa, Fla., got stuck in some mud after it veered off a taxiway following a night of heavy rain. Southwest spokesman Paul Flaningan says it's not yet clear whether the weather played a role.

There were no injuries at either airport.
