Michelle Harris reported that visibility was “nearly zero” and that snow had filled ditches along EE Highway making them level with the road.

Michael Pinson of Granby had already been stuck in Kansas City for 24 hours on Tuesday morning, his military detail shut down because of weather and on orders not to leave for home.

Janet Scholl said she had not seen this much snow since the late 1980s – early 1990s when her husband was stationed in North Dakota with the Air Force.  

“The only thing is that the chill factor won't reach -60 degrees to -90 degrees here like it did there,” Scholl said.

Staying inside seemed like a common thread for readers yesterday as we asked what their plans were. A book, hot coffee or soup kept many of our readers warm while others had to brave the storm.

Reader Lori Thomas headed to work at the emergency room. Scott Whitman checked from his patrol in Granby. Patty Bush Stoutsenberger headed over to her 81-year-old mother-in-law’s home to make sure she was OK. Cindy Cook watched from the window as her husband Jason tried to shovel out a neighbor’s driveway in the thick of the snow.

“It's not looking to good,” she noted, “Other than that we are just amazed at how much snow is falling!!!!”
