How Much Snow Did You Get?

Yesterday we had our second major snowstorm of the year! The forecast was for 6-10" for our area. As it turned out, Kansas City was in the bullseye of the storm!

It started snowing around 1:00 yesterday afternoon and kept it up until late in the night. At times the flakes were big and fluffy and came down heavily. Around rush hour it was snowing so hard it was almost a white out!

We were lucky and were home safe and sound with no plans to get out in it.

Today the beauty of it is this, taken of our backyard from the sunporch:

But the reality is this:

My DH took several trips out to shovel our driveway. The sun was shining, but the temperature was in the teens most of the day. He measured and said we had around 6" of snow. Our street is still snow covered as you can see, but cars seem to be driving without problems.

Unfortunately, snow is in the forecast for tomorrow too!

How much snow did you get?


  1. We keep getting a couple inches here, a couple inches there. Nothing huge since December. I think it's hitting everywhere else. Stay safe!

  2. Enough that I could barely get my car out! Stay warm and cozy!

  3. We had 9 inches in my part of MO and more last night and today, but don't know how much.
    I am ready for Spring and the retreat in Branson.
