In Oklahoma, an ice storm disrupted power to as many as 125,000 homes and businesses while warming temps later led to melting ice and snow that have turned roads into slushy rivers, yards into quagmires and streams into rushing torrents.
And, the coup de grace: a pickup truck carrying radioactive materials used in pipeline scanning equipment was swept from a bridge and disappeared in a swollen creek in Oklahoma's Pittsburg County.
