Workers clear the sidewalk on the Country Club Plaza shopping district in Kansas City, Mo., Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013. The Missouri Department of Transportation said Interstate 44 near Springfield was completely covered with ice Thursday morning. Traffic was moving very slow and the DOT urged drivers to use extreme caution or stay home. St. Louis-area road crews were out in full force early Thursday, even though it was dry. The region was expecting a volatile mix of snow, sleet, ice and freezing rain by midday and crews were hoping to lay down enough salt to keep at least the major roadways moving.

The winter storm that blew through the Chicago area overnight is slowing things at Chicago's airports.

More than 300 flights were canceled at O'Hare Friday morning and 80 delays of up to 30 minutes were reported.

There were about 30 flights canceled at Midway and delays of about 15 minutes.

If you are flying, make sure you check to see if your flight is on schedule before heading to the airport.
