Commuters stuck waiting in Port Authority Bus Terminal are taking to Twitter to let out their frustrations amid Thursday's winter storm.

Heavy delays from the snow caused overcrowding inside the building, prompting officials to block more people from entering at 5:15 p.m. The doors were still blocked as of 7 p.m.

Not comforting.

A Port Authority spokesperson recommended people take trains back to New Jersey to combat the bus delays.

"People are yelling."

The congestion inside of the bus terminal was because only some buses were able to get into the station, the spokesperson said.

Welcome to the gates of hell.

"Guards are blocking upper levels, people are yelling," Rachel Gallagher tweeted. "#firstsnow #portauthority"

Many people abandoned their commute to find drinks.
