A massive storm buried much of the central United States in dangerous ice and snow Wednesday, stranding scores of motorists with massive drifts that shut down major roads and defeated plows.Of course, this is all attributable to anthropogenic global warming. You knew that, right? And those Copenhagen attendees in their nicely warmed limos eating caviar wedges will tell you so. So be prepared not only to take the blame for this global warming event, but also to give up your freedoms for the evil that you have done to the planet.
Strong winds created drifts as high as 15 feet (4.6 meters) as the storm dropped as much as four feet of snow (1.2 meters) in some areas, said Pat Slattery, a spokesman for the National Weather Service.
"This has been a really big season opening storm," Slattery said.
Hundreds of flights were cancelled, schools were closed and the freezing rain that preceded the snow in many places created hazardous road conditions.
