"There's no place like home, 
unless there's NO power."
-What Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz might have said in this storm

Snow may begin in southwestern Kansas by daybreak and spread across the state, becoming heavy with winds increasing throughout the day. For more information on our team's monitoring of this storm, and for local public safety information, please visit the Central Plains Winter Stormcast zone on facebook.
