This will come as little surprise to those in the Kansas City area bone-weary from snow shoveling, or shivering in cold, dark homes.
Missouri was by far the hardest hit in a massive snow storm that stretched some 2,000 miles across the nation from Colorado to the Atlantic Ocean.
Snow totals that topped 10 inches in parts of the Kansas City area peaked at more than 20 inches in east-central Missouri, according to 72-hour snow totals from the National Weather Service.
“Missouri took the brunt of this storm,” said a tweet Sunday evening from the National Weather Service station in Pleasant Hill, Mo., “but it was felt from the eastern Rockies all the way to the east coast!”
