Oh, look! It'll be a white Christmas.
Blizzard Warning issued

The National Weather Service has issued a Blizzard Warning for much of NE Kansas, including Douglas County, in effect until 6 p.m. Friday. Travel is strongly discouraged.


No family gathering for me. *sigh* And I even got the presents all made (and that was a LOT of presents, you know.)

Edit: not that it's actually snowing. What's falling out there right now (and for the last several hours) are little balls of ice. Isn't Kansas weather FUN?

I am sorry you are alone. I'm snowed (more iced in really the front door won't open)in with my fam in Omaha.

As long as the electricity and internet stay on, we're good for the duration. But yeah, sucks to cancel family plans. Luckily my parents are just 3 blocks away, we'll do something at their place tomorrow.

Yeah, it's not just Kansas. Around here, OKC has 11 inches. We have 1-1/2" of ice, have already gotten about 2" of snow and it's white-out conditions out there.

Glad you're safe at home rather than on the road out in this.

Getting that now in KCMO. Yeah, it's weird to be able to hear the snow on the roof.

The weather you are describing is not unusual for Michigan either. I grew up with snow showers, sleet, ice storms, and heavy lake effect snow if you head that way. At least KS doesn't have 6-12" of snow coming in from lake moisture on a regular basis. At least we were far enough inland not to get much of that.
