Winter weather has created any number of problems for truckers, and residents in many states in the past week ... and the troubles are not over yet.

Ice, snow, sub-zero temperatures and high winds have made some interstates and other highways unpassable, stranding some truckers in their tracks and forcing many into extended stays at truck stops.

However, getting to a truck stop has not always meant getting to complete safety.

Power outages and travel difficulties have left some truck stops without fuel service, and the ability to serve hot meals.

One truck stop -- the Petro off Interstate-94 in Yorkville, Wisconsin -- was heavily damaged Tuesday, Feb. 15, when more than a foot of snow caused part of its roof to collapse. Reports say the part of the building where the roof collapsed was under construction and not occupied at the time. No injuries were reported.

The three major truck stop chains have locations that have some sort of service interruption. Click on their websites for details:
