Mike Kopatich was on his way to St. Louis when he got caught in the mess and had to wait hours for the lanes to reopen.
"A couple of hours -- I get it," he said on Sunday. "You know, I understand unfortunately sometimes these things happen. But it's going on seven hours and no one has said a word to us. Newsflash: It's 15 degrees outside. People are running out of gas."
The Red Cross opened up a shelter nearby for stranded travelers.
