I just got back from Thanksgiving vacation and It started snowing around Great Bend on my way back. First it was mainly just huge flakes that made the roads very slushly and then around Rush Center it turned into lighter flakes with 40-50 MPH winds. The huge flakes was worse than the lighter flakes with the wind. It sucked driving back. It started snowing around 4:30 and it hasnt stopped. Normally takes me 2 hours 20 minutes to get back, this time it took me 3 hours to get back. Of course I heard there was a storm coming but I was not going to leave untill after the Chiefs game.

Tough people in those parts. During a winter trek across Kansas on the way to a snow skiiing vacation we stopped in the middle of the night for gas. Snow on the ground, sharp wind blowing across the prarie that cut you to the bone. The woman who was the proprieter of the gas station, came out of her trailer in a tee-shirt and flip flops, just to shoot the breeze.

I70 west of Russell is closed down, and many other highways. Many students didnt make it back tonight. One of our halls has been opened up for anyone that needs help by the Red Cross. All the hotels here are full. Ice and snow covering the roads.

I'm not suprised.

Hopefully it'll let up soon, but from judging the radar, it probably won't for awhile.

But hey, it's Kansas weather. Tornadoes, Hail, High Winds, and near-blizzard conditions.

We got it all baby.

Brodys dumbass barely made it, he slid off once and had to wait for a four wheel drive truck to pull him out. Damn Fords.

You're right. I already done wore it getting back into the dorms. Its awesome and wore it when Brody went to Sonic. A stocking cap and some gloves would be cool too. Official Reebok type stuff. hmmm.. kcchiefs.com caps and accessories, Focus sideline ribbed knit hat... or a yellow or white one would make me look cool.

It does, but a stocking cap would increase my lady chances. check out my edited post on my last one.

Hell yeah. I was born and raised in Hays. It wasn't the small amount of snow, it was the winds that shut everything down. I miss that actually.
