It's because people are idiots. I saw a lot of social media posts Thursday night and Friday morning claiming that the meteorologists are wrong and it's not going to snow. Or there are those who somehow thing they're special and can drive around hilly roads in their 2wd car with no problem.

Their isn't anything the city can do about equipment when the roads are jam packed with cars. Plows can't just magically plow through streets and highways full of cars. They need people to stay off the roads so they can do their job. The news was reporting people abandoning their cars on the highway, and tow trucks were needed to move the cars so the roads coupd get plowed. They were also shutting down sections of the highway so the plows could get a chance to clear the roads.

And it wasnt just people who werent allowed to leave work. My SO left the office at 1pm. He had coworkers who waited till 5-6pm to leave.

Loop last 4hrs. 2:45-6:45pmEST.


I see a 14-15" report from Missouri.
8-12" Central Illinois.
6-8" around Indy,
3-6" in Ohio
just started getting heavier in DC now but looks like a dry slot coming.


Note the north movement of the snow has stopped. That's it. Milwaukee and Detroit got jipped!

It's been snowing almost continuously for over 30 hours in Kansas City. Very light now though. Tiny snowflakes.

Ultimately I finished with around seven inches in northern Johnson County, Kansas. I saw plenty 9-12" reports in the area. Most of our suburbs received just as much snow as the city of St. Louis. A friend in Columbia had 14.5" of snow.

The meteorologists are already sounding the alarm about the next winter storm (Friday?).

It's going to get active with snowstorms and the Arctic Blasts.

Snow totals from this storm: WOW

Only to 7am this morning so I'll grab the new one tomorrow to include the Mid Atlantic states. but I think we know who will be the winner here. Looks like Region 3 & 4 but since its more widespread in Illinois it might go to 3.


Was that forecasted in Western Illinois to get 12"(30cm)+???


Mexico, Missouri with 19" (48cm)

Sterling, Illinois





Jacksonville, Illinois
