ST. CHARLES, MO (KTVI)-- Many snow plow drivers worked double shifts to battle the record snow fall in the St. Louis region.

MoDOT had about 200 plows in the region Monday night. Officials said they would be treating roads and clearing any remaining snow.

St. Charles got 12 inches of snow. It caused many people to cancel their plans.

"My husband was supposed to have a birthday party, but with a big snow like that we decided to cancel it," Rita Ohmes said. "We just wanted to be safe."

Ice and black ice is a major worry overnight Monday, according to MoDOT. Officials are warning drivers to be careful. They said bridges and overpasses are dangerous.

"That is what I worry about for everyone out there driving," Ohmes said. "That ice can be really dangerous."

Ohmes said she thinks MoDot is doing a "great" job.

"We have not seen a lot of areas that are covered with snow," she said. "And when you think about how much snow fell that is amazing."

Joseph Campise has been in the snow removal business for three decades. He said his crews spent "56 hours" plowing roads.

"We were all out for a while and moved a lot for snow," he said. "It just kept falling."
