A car slowly makes it's way down an icy street in Matthews, N.C., Tuesday, Jan. 11, 2011. It could be days before icy, treacherous conditions improve for areas of the South hit by a wintry blast that sent cars sliding off the roads, emptied grocery shelves and had officials nervously watching ice-laden power lines and tree limbs.
