A powerful winter storm dumped snow across much of eastern Kansas from Saturday night into early Sunday morning, but many area residents were on the low side of earlier snow projections.
National Weather Service meteorologist John Woynick says several things happened to reduce the snow totals here and enhance them to our northwest.

Roads are snowpacked and passable. County crews ended a nearly 20-hour shift around 7:30 am Sunday, according to Assistant County Engineer Jim Brull.
Emporia city crews, meanwhile, remained out past 9 am. Street Supervisor Mike Dvorak says crews are working to keep the arterial and collector streets -- the main streets around town -- as clear as possible.
Drivers apparently heeded the warnings of poor travel conditions. No accidents were reported overnight, either by Emporia Police or the Lyon County Sheriff's Office.
