    Ice storm 12212013


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Almccartney knew a winter storm was heading towards Oklahoma City, but he wasn't expecting an ice storm on December 21. He says the storm brought icy rain and frigid temperatures. 'The lucky thing is we had some warmer weather a few days before and that helped the roads not freeze. So, the only really slick spots were bridges and overpasses. The bad thing is ice is snapping power lines,' he said. Ice storms happen almost every winter, he explains, but he stays this was happened really quickly. 'It dropped a half inch of ice in a very short time,' he said.
