Horses at Valley Mount Ranch in Fenton nuzzle each other Tuesday as the icy rain turns to snow. A monster storm began to bear down on the middle of the nation Tuesday, threatening to leave up to a third of the nation covered in snow and ice.

Potentially the worst winter storm to hit Missouri in decades began its trek across the state Tuesday, bringing surreal amounts of snow, freezing rain and dangerously cold temperatures.

Semi-trucks sit idle at the Midway Truck Stop as they wait for the snow storm to pass Tuesday in Midway, west of Columbia on Interstate 70.
Semi-trucks disappear into the white snow as they travel along Interstate 70 on Tuesday near Boonville.
