WICHITA, Kan. The day after the storm, Wichita roads are still covered in snow and ice. Slideoffs became a common sight along major highways, and multiple wrecks were caused on the slick, snow-packed roads.

"Just slick, real slick and covered," said driver Scott Denning. "If you don't have front wheel drive, I don't think you need to be out here."

Travel can be dangerous and frustrating, but at times, it reveals good deeds. When Brian Talberg saw a car stuck in snow, he put his schedule on pause, and started scooping.

"Poor guy stuck in the snow, helped him. It's the right thing to do," Talberg said.

And when another driver came upon an accident on Webb Road near the Waterfront, he stopped to provide assistance and stayed even after emergency crews arrived.

"There was an accident and I was just stopping to help the lady and her daughter," Denning said. "The daughter was pretty shaken up and I was just making sure everyone was okay."

Even nature is putting its' best foot forward this cold morning, revealing what's called a sun dog. The rare sight, a showstopper, but the roads are stopping traffic for a different reason.

"I was born and raised in the state," Talberg said. "Just go slow and take the time and maybe not drive low-profile sports cars to work."
