They say that it may actually reach 80 degrees in the KC metro next
However, we did tangle with winter storm Octavia on the way home from
Camp (Sebring, Fl). We were watching the weather forecasts and
managed to get north and west of the worst of the storm.
After passing through Memphis and St. Louis, we finally got into
white-out conditions on I-70 and pulled off at Columbia, Mo.
..... Just a couple of hours away from home.
The next morning, the Weather Channel was reporting 10" to 12" of snow
in both Memphis and St Louis and I remember that it was still snowing in
St. Louis. We waited as late as possible that morning and completed
the trip home after the road crews had a chance to clear the 3" to 5" of
snow that fell in the Columbia area.
We are soooooo ready for Spring!
