Stranded by the massive winter storm that battered the East Coast this week, a New York mother of five paid $900 for a cab to drive her family home through heavy snow and high winds, ABC News reported Wednesday.

Emilian Emeagwali’s family had enjoyed a week-long vacation at Disney World when they learned their flight to New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport was canceled because of the storm, she told ABC.

Rather than wait out the backlog of canceled flights, Emeagwali decided to book another flight to Buffalo, N.Y., the report said.

Upon arriving in Buffalo, the family took a cab to the local Greyhound Bus station where they learned no buses were running.

After asking the cab driver, Eddy Emran, to take them to a hotel, he offered to drive them home for the price of $1,100, The New York Times reported.
