Strongest winter storm in decades strikes Kansas

Facebook Twitter

Crippling snow storm buries much of Kansas.

A powerful storm system ejected out of the southern Rockies and into the plains on February 21st and brought some of the highest snowfall amounts this area has seen in decades.

As of 7 pm on February 21st the Wichita Mid-Continent Airport has measured a storm total snowfall of 14.2 inches which makes this storm the 2nd worst on record!  The highest storm total snowfall for Wichita occurred back in 1962 when a storm dumped 15 inches.

One of the more unique aspects of this storm was the amount of thundersnow that took place during the early morning hours of February 21st.  Below is video taken from a security camera at the National Weather Service in Wichita showing the lightning associated with the thundersnow.

  1. No doubt local Kansan meteorologists, will state that Feb was the warmest ever Feb in 4.6 billion years, and that the warming really caused the cooling which is going to cause more warming. Gibberish is now science. Reality is now fantasy. Truth is relative.

  2. the very bottom left side page in the link..
    digging a small plane out of the snow..
    why?
    when the runway etc is likely to be dangeropus anyway?
    and dont they use snowploughs?

  3. I’m praying it tracks east to bury “Obozo” in “Global Warming” wonderland. Unfortunately, it looks like it may track too far north.

    1. I moved on Tuesday, and wanted it to be a seamless transition. In order to prepare for the move I hired electricians to come in and add a new electric circuit and a bunch of fourplex outlets so that I wouldn’t have all those spider webs behind my desk and along the walls.

      Also hired a computer whiz to disconnect all of my computer stuff and take it to my new office late on Monday. We agreed that he would sleep there and have everything up and running by Tuesday morning.
      Instead, when I got here on Tuesday morning I found a huge tangle of spider-web wires and computer components scattered across the entire office … and a very drunk and smelly computer whiz sound asleep on the hardwood floor. That created a few tense moments (understatement).

      On Wednesday, a different computer person started afresh and now, finally, I’m back on line.

      I apologize to everyone for the lack of posts.

    1. You’re correct.

      I moved yesterday, and in order to prepare for the move I hired a computer whiz to disconnect all of my computer stuff and take it to my new office. We agreed that he would sleep there and have everything up and running by Tuesday morning. Instead, when I got here on Tuesday morning I found a huge tangle of spider-web wires and computer components covering the office floor and a very drunk computer whiz. sound asleep on floor.

      That created a few tense moments. Today, a different computer person started afresh and now I’m finally back on line.

      I apologize to everyone for the lack of posts.

      1. Nothing to apologize my friend, I was just worried that something wrong could have happened, knowing as I know you from many years that you’re a huge enthusiastic of the ideas presented in this site.
        Good to know that everything is back to normal!:-)

  4. Why aren’t commments showing up? Has this site crashed? I wonder if the government finally pulled the plug on this site since it goes against their alarmist Anti Christian dogma?
