ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - Sunday morning brought a good amount of snow across St. Louis.  Some of it creating a number of accidents like this one at I-170 south and Delmar and another at I-55 and I-44 east downtown. The weather didn`t stop players, coaches and fans from showing up to the President's Day volleyball tournament at the America’s Center and Edward Jones Dome.  More than 700 male and female youth teams from across the country participated. One group from Festus says the snow tacked 30 minutes to their drive.

More than 10,000 people went to the tournament over the weekend. Organizers say they are always planning for what Mother Nature has in store.
