The massive storm hit as more than 50 million Americans are heading home after the Thanksgiving holiday. Wind gusts of up to 50 miles per hour, feet of snow. It was really bad. At some point there was no visibility. Huge buses stuck on the road. All overwhelming cars and canceling and delaying hundreds of flights. Kansas, one of the hardest hit areas, declared a state of emergency. It is a very bad condition. In my 19 years as a trooper, this might be the top five worst i’ve ever seen across Kansas area. Milly Rodriguez and her brother Eric Negron shared their view of whiteout conditions on Twitter. This is so scary, this is ridiculous. They sought shelter in this gas station until the storm passed. You couldn't see anything, you couldn't even see, not even a foot in front of you. It felt like you were in a hurricane but with snow.
The National Weather Service put Chicago under a blizzard warning tonight at O'Hare Airport, veteran travelers cut Thanksgiving short to avoid delays. Are you worried about the travel delays because of the impending snowstorm? Yeah. Okay, did you make any travel changes? I did, I was supposed to go home tomorrow, but I changed it today. And the airlines are really great, because you could change without any fee. A shortened Thanksgiving served with an early taste of winter. Well, here in Chicago that blizzard warning is a promise of things to come. There's no snow yet, but there's plenty of wind and folks here expecting to start the workweek with a few inches of snow on the ground and all the problems that entails.
在感恩节假期结束后，一场大风暴袭击了美国，此时有5千多万美国人正在返乡途中。狂风速度达每小时50英里，路上有数英尺的积雪 。情况真的很糟糕 。在某些时候能见度为零，很多大型的公车都堵在路上 。到处都是被暴雪吞没的汽车，上百次航班被迫取消或延误 。这是一个非常糟糕的情况 。在我19年的骑警生涯中，这可能是我所见过的堪萨斯地区最糟糕的5次恶劣天气之一 。米莉·罗
