KC Winter Storm II: The View From My Deck

A second major winter storm in a week bore down on southern U.S. Plain states Monday and Tuesday, dumping more than a foot of snow in areas. Parts of Kansas and Missouri were still digging out from last week’s winter storm. The amount of snow we’ve gotten from these two storms is more than the yearly average. Here’s the view from my deck, this morning:

 In the Kansas City area – my neck of the woods – grocery store bread aisles were nearly bare and some stores ran out of shovels:

A Home Depot in Overland Park, Kansas, a Kansas City suburb, received 300 snow shovels Sunday night and nearly all were sold within an hour after the store opened Monday, a manager said.

Our Walmart bread aisle looked like this, yesterday:

The heaviest snow has already occurred, but an additional 1-3 inches of snow is expected, this afternoon, totaling up to 12 inches from the south Kansas City Metro area northeastward through North Central Missouri.

Yep, the kids are home from school, today.
