Beyond my experience, here are some highlights of the storm's impact on St Louis:
- 500,000 customers are without power
- one of the major highways here (I-70) was shut down for awhile
- Metrolink (train) was inoperable this morning
- more than 1000 travelers stranded in Lambert Airport
Thankfully the sleet stopped sometime during the night and we woke up this morning to a winter wonderland! We were "supposed" to get 6-10 inches of snow, but only got 1-2. Normally I would be disappointed about that, but since there was 2 inches of ice underneath, I was happy with just a little more than a dusting this time. I am grateful now for the pretty sunshine that has come out and given us a relief from the precipitation so that the road crews can catch up and keep my roadways clear!
