Re: Blizzard Warning, Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas...UPDATE: National Guard Called In To The Texas Panhandle
Amarillo Globe News is reporting literally thousands of stranded vehicles all over the Texas Panhandle today...

Life threatening situation out there people, if you are at home, stay home!

And apparently word is coming in that the National Guard that was coming in to help with rescue operations is stranded as well...

If by some chance you are stranded, and can see this, if you are in open country and cannot see a house or town very nearby, you should stay put INSIDE YOUR VEHICLE until the wind abates this evening...

We'll get you out when we can get out...
 Quoting: Saddletramp


Good Lord...I'm glad to hear y'all are safe and sound. Buckeye is ok too from what I can tell. Ive been reading on twitter how people are making fun of us in Texas because of a "little snow." What they don't understand is we don't have armies of snow plows and mountains of salt sitting around like they do up North. I'll betcha that the people who are stuck on the roads are probably helping each other stay safe. Its the Texas way.

Considering the Weather Service was only calling for 4 to 8 inches Yesterday Morning in our area...I'd call this a miss, though they have been diligently updating the forecasts...

It's a perfect storm in plains terms, tropical moisture moving up onto the plains, cold front coming down, and a strong low pressure system riding the frontal boundary right across the middle of us...

SCOTTLINCOLN hit the nail on the head... thats part of an old warm front from yesterday's storms

MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 0219
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0925 AM CST MON FEB 25 2013

AREAS AFFECTED...E TX INTO SRN AR/LA/SWRN MS

CONCERNING...SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH LIKELY

VALID 251525Z - 251630Z

PROBABILITY OF WATCH ISSUANCE...80 PERCENT

SUMMARY...HAIL POTENTIAL IS FORECAST TO INCREASE ACROSS THE
DISCUSSION AREA IN THE SHORT TERM...FOLLOWED BY AN INCREASE IN
DAMAGING WIND/ISOLATED TORNADO POTENTIAL LATER THIS MORNING/EARLY
AFTERNOON. WW WILL BECOME LIKELY IN THE NEXT 1-2 HOURS.

DISCUSSION...A VERY STRONG STORM SYSTEM IS ADVANCING EWD ACROSS NWRN
TX ATTM...WITH THE MID/UPPER LEVEL CENTER OF CIRCULATION INVOF CDS
/CHILDRESS TX/ AND THE SURFACE LOW NOW JUST N OF ABI /ABILENE TX/.

S OF THE SURFACE LOW...A PACIFIC COLD FRONT CONTINUES SURGING EWD
THROUGH E TX...WHILE THE WARM FRONT EXTENDS SEWD FROM THE LOW ACROSS
E TX TO THE VICINITY OF LCH /LAKE CHARLES LA/.
WITH ONLY A SLIVER OF LOW-LEVEL GULF AIR INLAND ATTM -- OVER THE
HOUSTON METRO AREA AND VICINITY...STRONG LARGE-SCALE ASCENT IS
FOCUSED ACROSS THE ARKLATEX REGION WHERE STEEP MID-LEVEL LAPSE RATES
RESIDE ATOP A SURFACE-BASED STABLE LAYER. SCATTERED STORMS ARE
ONGOING INVOF THIS AREA...AND SHOULD CONTINUE OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL
HOURS ALONG WITH ATTENDANT HAIL POTENTIAL.

WITH TIME...AS THE SURFACE LOW SHIFTS EWD ACROSS THE RED RIVER
VALLEY...NWD RETREAT OF THE WARM FRONT IS EXPECTED AHEAD OF THE
ADVANCING PACIFIC FRONT. WITH TIME...EXPECT THE NOW-STABLE LOWER
TROPOSPHERE OVER LA TO BE REPLACED BY A FAVORABLY MOIST BOUNDARY
LAYER -- AND GIVEN VEERING/STRENGTHENING FLOW WITH HEIGHT ACROSS THE
REGION...SHEAR SUPPORTIVE OF SUPERCELLS WILL RESULT IN INCREASING
POTENTIAL FOR SURFACE-BASED SEVERE WEATHER IN ADDITION TO THE
ONGOING HAIL THREAT. ALONG WITH DAMAGING WIND POTENTIAL --
PARTICULARLY IF A LINE OF STORMS EVOLVES ALONG THE PACIFIC
FRONT...ISOLATED TORNADOES APPEAR LIKELY WITH PRE-FRONTAL
SUPERCELLULAR CONVECTION.

Well, this is the worst I've ever seen. They had really bad blizzards up here in 1957 and 1889, and according to the data, this is certainly comparable with those storms...

I'm not worried about me you understand, I'm fine. The Electricity is still working (knock on wood), house is warm, the temps outside aren't terrible until you factor in wind chill...

I worry more about my animals in things like this, the Livestock losses are going to be unbelievable up on the baldies (the flat country), and the feedlots will be dragging deads for weeks, luckily I have my cattle in a pasture here in Texas with good cover, and thank God for that, but they're going to need some hay in the next few days, and I suspect it's going to be awhile before I can even get down the road to them...skid loader will be useless in this deep snow, and my tractor is in New Mexico...

And this happened right in the dead middle of calving season up here...so I'm praying my babies will be okay. Them old cows are pretty savie though, and it's always surprising how good they come out of these things...

Amen.

What could you do? This will hit the cattle ranchers another blow, coming on the heels of the drought. :-(

I am predicting that with this snow load that pole building roofs will collapse too. Hopefully the wind will blow the roofs clean.


I am reading of 6 to 10 foot drifts out your way. That is not an unsubstantial amount, even for snow country up north.

You can't do anything, If you're animals have found a decent spot to ride out the storm, you're better off just leaving them in that spot until the storm passes. you just ride it out and do the best you can to try and look after your animals once the blizzard is past.

Luckily, they are predicting it will warm up some over the next couple of days before the next front, so maybe we'll get some good melt before the next round...

Whiteouts were also reported in Oklahoma, where as of 10 a.m. Central time, the state had closed all highways in six counties -- Ellis, Harper, Woodward, Beaver, Texas and Cimarron -- until further notice.

"Roadways and ditches are snow packed with no visibility, and are very slick and hazardous. All travel is discouraged," the Oklahoma Department of Transportation said. As much as 16 inches of snow could fall in western areas of the state, the weather service said.

Re: Blizzard Warning, Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas...UPDATE: National Guard Called In To The Texas Panhandle
Being from the Texas panhandle I have tons of friends and family who live there. Ive been watching Facebook all day and it looks pretty bad but nothing to crazy. Ive seen it like that many times before when i was a kid. It looks like the biggest problem is snow drifts. However, its definitely not something to be take lightly. A few of my friends who have big ass 4x4 truck where out rescuing people who where trying to go to work but got stuck and didn't make it.
