...ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...

In 2006, one of the most significant winter storms of the past 25
years developed over the area and continued over several days. Two
to three feet of snow fell in portions of east central Colorado and
western Kansas, with snow totals ranking in the top ten all time
highest storm totals for many reporting sites. Freezing rain also
occurred over portions of northwest and north central Kansas with
one inch ice accumulations hampering clean-up efforts. The National
Guard was called to provide hay drops to stranded cattle. Interstate
70 and all area roadways were closed as a result of a combination of
blowing and drifting snow and significant ice accumulations.
Locations in Wallace and Greeley counties reported over 30 inches of
snow for the event.
