Liberal was in the bullseye of the storm with about 12 inches of snow measured.
The Kansas Highway Patrol worked injury and non-injury slide-offs in southwest Kansas all day Tuesday. The National Weather Service warned of a “hazardous commute” in a tweet.
“There is some slush, so cars are thinking it’s clear, and so they’ll speed up and then they’ll hit that slick spot and that’s when they go into ditches and stuff like that,” said Kansas Highway Patrol Trooper Michael Racy.
The Kansas Department of Transportation said the snow was so wet and heavy that a couple of snowplows got stuck.
The snow was no problem for some in Liberal. They took advantage of it by making snowmen.
In Kansas, transportation officials say many roads in the western part of the state are partially or completely covered.
