I was outside shooting video of the icy road chaos in St. Charles, Missouri and saw this happen. It looked like a power flash and then a firework, and I didn't recognize it at first as a meteor. I just thought "who is shooting fireworks in these conditions?" The boom would have been audible from here, but there was so much noise from the tractor trailers spinning their wheels and other mayhem that I don't remember it. I at first didn't think I had caught it, but turns out I did (video in a reply below).

Turns out I *did* capture Monday's meteor fireball over the icy road chaos in St. Louis! The meteor is visible reflecting in the truck's windows in the foreground! Didn't hear a boom in subsequent shots.
