Winter storms blamed for at least 8 deaths

A nasty winter storm tracking through the southern U.S. is blamed for at least 8 deaths.
 
The system pushed its way through portions of New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas.

Conditions have been treacherous to say the least.

A thin coat of ice covered just about everything Sunday morning in Midland, Texas.

The slick weather also closed highways and cancelled church services.

A winter storm warning is posted in the Dallas-Fort Worth area until noon Monday. And in parts of New Mexico and southwest Oklahoma, up to a foot of snow fell.
