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.

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.

I'm glad the ice never came.  My truck was covered with an inch of that shit all the way back from Missouri and I didn't want more added that night.

Part two, tonight through Sunday night. Anywhere from 3-18 inches (depending on which part of Colorado you reside) and Blizzard Warnings across the state.

I was unlucky enough to leave a late night at the school and drove right into a blizzard last November. Took me 2 and 1/2 hours to make a 50-minute trip. I could see about 10 feet in front of me.

Turns out that the total snow accumulation that night was only two inches, but the high winds caused a near-whiteout.

....still better than those God-forsaken winters in New Hampshire.

Looks like I got about 6 inches of snow covering a thin layer of ice.

I find from long-time locals that what I experienced here over the 5-day period is what is referred to as "An Albuquerque Low". For some reason, if a storm moves northeast or northwest from Albuquerque, Colorado gets dumped on.

I'm used to bitching and cursing "Alberta Clippers". Those bastards were responsible for five straight years of sub-zero weather, wind chills and 100+ inch snowfalls in a season in New Hampshire.

Denver cold is different than Albq cold.  Albq cold is hell and fucking gone from Portales cold.  Think of Portales as Lubbock.  A big snow is usually 3 inches and when that happens our world is thrown into a tailspin.

We got another foot last night/this morning. I was off today and went over to the grocery store this morning and there were maybe 3 other people besides the skeleton crew staff.

Honestly, your area could use the snow though, at least it will slowly melt into the ground, diminishing the drought conditions in your area

It's been between +2 and +4 for the last 4 or 5 days here during the day, down around -10 overnight. Very nice for this time of year.

We'll get one or two more big dumps of snow, probably in early April.

Winter here used to be from the last week of October (snow and cold) right through March and into April before it even thought about thawing out. Consecutive weeks of -35 to -40 were pretty normal every winter (one year we had, I shit you not, almost 6 weeks straight of those temps). Now if we get more than three days of it in a row once it's something.

Odd to watch such a transition in weather when you live in the same city your whole life.
