Recent weather story from the National Weather Services shows snowfall of up to seven inches for the Northeast Kansas region.

The Lawrence area received four to seven inches of snow, as a another winter snow storm hit Northeast Kansas Saturday night and Sunday morning, according to estimates from the National Weather Service.

The bulk of the snow fell Saturday night and caused some treacherous driving conditions Sunday morning, when local emergency crews were busy responding to multiple incidents of vehicles sliding off area roads.

The NWS warned of continued problems on roads Sunday caused by blowing snow and high winds.

Megan Gilliland, city of Lawrence spokeswoman, said crews have been prepping Lawrence roads since Thursday, and additional units have been called in. Crews were working to open downtown roadways in anticipation of traffic during the KU men's basketball game.

even nasa scientists and astronauts question that the earth is actually warming as such, but more specifically, that ifit is, what is it supposed to be, and then, if it is warming, question the link to mankind's activities.

and, citing fox news does not qualify as a refuting argument. in fact, studies show fox news viewers are better informed on civil/political matters than the general american public.

Global Warming simply to even the world playing field, ammunition shortages to bypass constitutional rights, election fraud, media failing to report the truth, completely gutting the best healthcare system in the history of man to meet the needs of a million or so citizens, destruction of the black middle class, manipulation of our fuel prices to match tiny European nations green policies.............

We have government telling us we can't have a 32 oz unsweetened ice tea in NY. What ever happened to the generation who fought government intrusion? Jokes on you comrades.

Some of us don't think about fuel costs for a small farmer, construction worker, commuters, or even a man or women on a budget purchasing a 64 oz drink to sip on all day. Nope, not anymore in the home of the free.

LG40 - cop a clue and understand the diff between weather and climate. You can go back to Fox News now since they are apparently your source for science information.

So how much snow did Lawrence get? Are the plows out? Isn't that what everyone wants to know? Of course its the information missing from this article.

LG49, if you want to argue about what is causing global warming, I could take your posts seriously, and there could be a debate. But you can't argue that it isn't happening. That would be like a person standing knee high in water in their boat, and arguing that the boat isn't sinking. There might be many different reasons why a boat is sinking, but to deny that it's not sinking is just plain ridiculous.

lawrenceguy40 - Your TeaParty talking points underscore your basic ignorance of science...

As a result of global warming, the Arctic region is warming at about twice the rate of more temperate zones and the consequences of this include shifts in ocean currents and the jet stream and the projection of weather phenomenon further south than usual.

In short, late storms like this are happening DUE to global warming...
