These Videos Show Just How Crazy the Ice Was in St. Louis Today


St. Louis residents woke up to a scary situation this morning: Most of the metro area was completely glazed over with ice.

And now meteorologists are saying that the weather conditions might be right for us to experience a thin coating of ice again tonight that might interfere with Monday morning traffic.

They advise you to check conditions before you leave home so that you won't get caught in one of the awful scenes shown in these videos. From cars sliding off the road to semi trucks unable to stop to streets that resembled ice rinks, it was a total mess out there.

Stay safe, St. Louis.
