One more winter storm: No relief in the South, Northeast

Residents hoped the storm would be this tough winter's last wallop, with spring bringing relief soon.

Here's a look at what's happening:



Thousands of stranded motorists endured waits of up to 24 hours Thursday as parts of Kentucky saw up to 2 feet of snow. Frustrated interstate travelers dealt with gas tanks and stomachs close to empty.

The massive traffic jam stretched for about 26 miles. National Guard soldiers and emergency workers made safety checks on the frustrated travelers.

"You see miles and miles of tail ends and tail ends. It's not a very good sight," National Guard Spc. Jeriel Clark said.

Larry Weas hunkered down in his car. To conserve fuel during his 11-hour ordeal, he kept his car turned off for long stretches and scooped snow into a bucket to have something to drink.

By Thursday evening, state highway officials said interstate routes in Kentucky were open again. On Friday morning, officials warned motorists to drive cautiously. Despite plowing and treating roadways, some still had packed snow and subfreezing temperatures made for icy conditions.
