    BLYTHEVILLE, AR (KAIT) - Poor road conditions have stranded hundreds of motorists in Region 8. Most, along I-55 in Mississippi County. "We were all the way in Missouri on foot just walking," Shondra Wright
    Roughly 50 Region 8 residents from Blytheville area churches and organizations spent hundreds of dollars and hours of their time walking along I-55 bringing food and water to those stranded motorists.

EAU CLAIRE, WI (WQOW/CNN) - The snowstorm forced one Mayo Clinic Health System employee to think creatively just to get to work.

Candie Gross says she used her cross country skis.

Gross said she received some funny looks on her way in, but that beats the alternative.

"My van was buried and I knew it would take a long time and I figured, I might as well just ski cause I wasn't going to get it unburied," she said.

She said the journey took her about a half an hour.
