Kansas City really got hammered with snow. Over a foot I think. Storm scheduled to arrive where I live in a little over an hour. The storm features a mix of show, ice and  rain depending on where the freeze line is.

Calling for about 1/4 inch of ice overnight, so the commute in the morning should be a real treat.

Looking outside, probably 3 inches of snow already.

Yeah we got a foot. Didn't impact me as much, since my new hospital is only 9 blocks away, and I left at 6:30 and it snowed through the day. Had a few surgeries cancelled so it made for an easy last shift of the week. Most restaurants were shut when I left at 7:30, so Just went to the HyVee across from the hosiptal. It was wierd being in a large grocery store with maybe...1 other customer and maybe 4 workers.

I had to sit at a truck stop for 45 minutes 28 miles south of St. Louis off of I-55 until the white out ended and then ended up driving through unplowed interstates until I got to Joliet when I got ahead of the storm finally.

Looking out my window, that storm gave me about 5 inches of snow last night

My mother is in southeastern Iowa.  Under about 14" of fresh snow, but plenty of time to prepare.  Hearty stock, them plains states folks.

It passed through Colorado on the 20/21st.  We picked up about 8 inches in the Springs..over two feet on the Eastern Plains.

It wasn't bad at all. 3 to 4 inches of snow.

I'd say we got 3-4 inches of snow in Chicago.
No ice at all.

We got the ice as expected, but the city did a good job of pre-treating the roads and other than the skating rink of a driveway and scraping the truck and van for 20 minutes it wasn't all that bad.

We were supposed to get that ice as well but it never came. It was supposed to be so bad that the schools here all either cancelled or did a two hr delay the day before. It ended up 'raining' for like 20 minutes and that was drizzle.
