DES MOINES, Iowa -- The snow isn't just causing a headache for motorists who drive on four wheels, but it also causes problems for those who navigate on two. Wheelchair users say winter weather makes it tough for them to get around. Michele Meadors says her route to work is often filled with roadblocks. She says snow piles in the middle of the curb cutouts and unshoveled sidewalks often make her late to work or keep her from going at all.
