NOEL KING, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Noel King. Earlier this week, I told you about, perhaps, the best place to get snowed in, a pub. Today's runner up, an IKEA. Heavy snow in northern Denmark forced at least 25 staff members and six customers to spend the night in the massive store. Fortunately, it's IKEA. There's plenty of room to spread out. There were lots of beds to choose from. And the stranded people also dined on the store's food, presumably meatballs, and watched television. It's MORNING EDITION.
