NORMAN, Oklahoma -

The freezing rain covered trees, power lines, and cars with a thick layer of ice.

But what's causing the most problems is the weight of the ice on tree limbs. A layer of ice coats almost everything.

In Norman, Mother Nature proved too much as tree limbs smashed cars and crashed through roofs. At the Emerald Green Apartments, a large tree split right down the middle slamming into four units. Shwantrala Webb's son was playing in his bedroom.

Inside the room, the tree left a hole in the wall. But upstairs where Lindsey Arthur lives, the damage is worse. The tree crushed her roof shattering the light fixture, sending shards of glass into her daughter's crib.

She's now stuck cramming everything into the family room, putting a damper on Christmas
