Ice Storm Hits Oklahoma, Texas

Here in Ohio, we had pretty nice weather over the Thanksgiving holiday. But that wasn't the case in parts of the southwest.

From airport delays and cancellations to dangerous road conditions, icy conditions in Oklahoma and Texas caused major travel delays all weekend long

The big problem for many - scenes like this. Accumulating ice bringing down trees and in some cases blocking roadways. The ice also wreaked havoc on power lines leaving thousands in the dark.
