So, I recommend anyone considering traveling in or through this area Saturday or Saturday night seriously reconsider. You can attempt to beat the storm by traveling tomorrow or waiting the storm out and traveling after 12 noon on Sunday.
If you've never been in a blizzard, please consider the following as an illustration as to how quickly the system can deteriorate.
|During a 2010 Kansas blizzard, highways became|
hazardous within ten minutes (!) of the commencement
of the start of the snow.
So, I urge you to monitor the weather closely and be prepared to change your plans.
