Record snowfall in Kansas

Up to 20 inches (51 cm) in some areas.  Heaviest on record for this late in the season. 

Between April 29 and May 1, 2017, a vigorous weather system delivered intense rain, heavy snow, and tornadoes across the central and southern United States.

On May 1, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite captured this natural-color view of a wide band of snow dropped by the storm. The snow that fell on western Kansas—up to 20 inches (51 centimeters) in some areas—was the heaviest on record for this late in the season, according to the Dodge City bureau of the U.S. National Weather Service.

  2. Hundreds of cows killed or lost in southeast Colorado blizzard

    BACA COUNTY, Colo. — Hundreds of cows were killed or lost during the blizzard that hit extreme southeastern Colorado last weekend. More than 2 feet of snow buried the region.

    Baca County officials said 400 cows died in the storm.

    Farmers and ranchers were working nonstop to find livestock that wandered off during the storm, even into Oklahoma.

    Julie Christiansen Tate shared photos of some of the cattle that were killed and recovery efforts for those that walked away.

  3. thanks for the articles, hope have time to read it thoroughly. It took a lot of generations to invent temperature but inventing climate change only took a couple of decades. They are talking about it if there is climate-meter. It is not the coming upwarming or the downcooling but the ideas presented as foundational to the science ‘climate change’. As scientists are claiming having the truth, it must be true.
