Bloggers, Good afternoon, I am sleep deprived so try to be nice to me! Sort of just kidding,
Anyway, We just had our second major snowstorm within five days of each other. 9.2″ of snow at KCI Airport last Thursday and now 5 to 13 inches of snow across the area today. Somehow you guys helped crash the blog by having so much traffic come to the site. We had 125,000 page views last Wednesday as the first storm approached, but somehow the system handled that one. Thank you so much for participating in this weather experience together. I was able to direct some of the traffic to my new Weather2020.com blog, but for now it appears this blog is back up and functional. Here are some snowfall totals:
We had 8 inches of snow here on the Plaza, and if you combine that with the 12 inches last week we have had 20 inches of snow in the past six days. WOW! And, guess what? We are likely not quite done. There is a band of snow still rotating around the big storm. It has shifted west to near Manhattan, KS as I am writing this and it extends into Nebraska and then around the main storm pulling away to the east. As the storm moves away tonight this final band of snow may very well come back across our viewing area.
We will go over more details of this weather pattern in tomorrow morning’s blog. In the mean time I have to get ready for the weather on many newscasts tonight including starting at 2 PM. Have a great day.
