Kansas City Area Braces for Another Round of Snow

If you believe the hype, this could be the biggest snow storm Kansas City has seen in 50 years. I've lived here my whole life; usually the amount of hype is inversely proportional to the amount of snow we actually get. That being said, it sure looks like we are going to have at least a moderate snowfall, with higher accumulations to the south, especially southeast.

The consensus seems to be 4 inches up to a possible 14 inches, depending on where in the area you are at. This does not bode well for Those who live in Kansas City Proper and do not own a 4WD vehicle. Unplowed streets with 10 inches of snow or more would be impassable for days (we are looking at temperatures below zero following the storm.) To make matters worse, the forecast also calls for strong winds making drifting of snow a real problem as well.

I, for one, will be at home in my jammies and slippers watching the snow. I recommend you do the same.
