Storm plasters Midwest

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- There will be less campaigning than
planned today in Iowa.
A winter storm has plastered the Midwest with ice and snow,
leaving Iowa's Des Moines International Airport closed.
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney canceled three
campaign stops scheduled for today in southern Iowa, while Bill
Clinton canceled a rally for his wife, Democrat Hillary Clinton.
Heavy ice around the state has left more than 2,000 people
without power. A number of accidents have been reported on Iowa
highways.
Meanwhile, there have been reports of difficult driving
conditions in Minnesota, where as many as 16 inches of snow are
forecast. Snow and blowing wind have reduced visibility in parts of
South Dakota.
