The first major winter storm of the season hammers western Kansas with strong winds, gusting over 50mph at times, and dumping several inches of snow. The heavy snowfall rates made I-70 a treacherous drive between Oakley and Hays as several inches of snow fell in a couple hours time, covering roads and leading to some spin outs.
