Ice Still In The Panhandle

Life in the Panhandle is getting back to normal following the storm, but many stranded travelers are still trying to get home.

More than 200 miles of Interstate 10 are only now re-opening.

A lot of drivers want to give it a try and that's led to bumper-to-bumper traffic.

Some drivers say the state should have done more to reopen the interstate sooner, but the state doesn't have snow plows or salt trucks.

“People out there are risking their lives and spending time away from their families in order to keep the roadways clear or restore power as much as possible, and if we're clogging up as the general public, then they're not able to do their jobs.”

The most road crews could do to combat the ice was throw sand on it.

But another problem was busted pipes.

Plumbers expect to busy for weeks.
