Spring Blizzard

In Wichita, yesterday and today, we had over 24 hours of freezing rain, sleet, and then snow, totaling perhaps 4-6 inches? In other parts of the state, even only 70 miles west, there was 2-3 feet of snow and drifts of over 6 feet! Some excellent pictures of the snowfall elsewhere in Kansas:
I ran this morning 3 miles in the snow and sleet. It wasn't the cold that bothered me-just the sleet hitting my face like hail and then the shin high slush puddles that I had to splash right through crossing the streets. It was still a fun adventure.
