The quick, but hard hitting blizzard dumped nearly a foot of snow over portions of western Kansas before clearing out and giving way to sun, allowing residents to start to dig out. In Garden City, 11-inches of snow came down in less than 9 hours time, averaging over 1-inch per hours for the duration of the storm. All highways in and out of Garden City were closed for several hours during the peak of the storm.
