Blizzard 2011

WOW! For the first time in University history MU will be shut down for 2 days in a row. It has never been done. So does this give you non-Columbia/Missouri residents an idea of what kind of snow we got today? No, we'll maybe the following pictures will help.

First pic taken of this area today. It was taken around 11:30 this morning.
Same area, around 2:30.
5:30. No way to really measure how much because of the blowing.
My favorite picture of the day. Out the backyard, Audrey's tire swing, the bottom is now buried.
On the news they said we got somewhere around 20+ inches. It is unreal out there. I-70 is shut down throughout the entire state. As one of my friends on twitter said "The SNOW-Me State is closed." I have never seen anything like this. On the news they were doing a behind the scenes look at all of them getting ready, eating, sleeping, just hanging out as the majority of the crew spent the night at the station. It effects pretty much the entire state in some way shape or form. The MU basketball team is stranded in KC trying to get to OK to play. Businesses that never close are closed, including like I said above MU.

The worst part of all of this, tomorrow is supposed to be worse in terms of the winds and the wind chill. The wind blowing is going to cause major drifting, making it really bad for the plows trying to clear the streets.

It has definitely been an event to remember.
