Winter storm in the Midwest

Early morning motorists travel west along I-70 and into a winter storm near Lawrence, Kan., Thursday, Dec. 20, 2012. Winter weather advisories are in effect for the area. The Midwest's first major snowstorm of the season was sweeping across several states early Thursday, shuttering schools, creating treacherous roadways and threatening to slow down one of the nation's busiest airports ahead of the holiday weekend.
