Groundhog Day Blizzard Means Treacherous Travel in Nation's Mid-Section

A potentially massive winter storm is making it's way out of the southwest United States.  This storm will wreak havoc on travel though the nation's mid-section from Monday through Wednesday.  It's not just snow that makes this storm dangerous.  Some areas, including St. Louis, Indianapolis and Columbus could see significant amounts of ice.  Electric companies have already begun calling in reinforcements in preparation for this event.  It's also possible that airports from Kansas City to Chicago will be closed due to heavy snow before this event is over.

If you're in the path of this storm, be sure to have several sources of weather information at hand.  A radio, TV, the internet (Weather Defender) and weather radio can all provide information on the storm's current status.  However, if a significant icing event occurs, you'll need to ensure you have a battery operated source of information and plenty of spare batteries!
