It's mid-April and 4 million people are under blizzard warnings in the US
#1




Nothing says spring like hurricane-force winds, snow and blizzards.
And that's just what mid-April is bringing to millions of people in the West and Midwest, with more than 40 million Americans under wind-related advisories and millions more expecting heavy snow.
Parts of Utah, Nevada, western Wyoming, Idaho and California should expect wind gusts to reach hurricane force on Wednesday, with winds of 74 mph, CNN meteorologist Pedram Javaheri said.
Another 4 million residents of Colorado, Nebraska, the Dakotas, Iowa, Wyoming and Kansas are under blizzard warnings through Wednesday night. The storms, which have been building up over the Rockies, will pummel the region Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning, the National Weather Service said.
In the Plains -- especially in parts of South Dakota -- there may be more than 2 feet of snow by Friday evening, Javaheri said.

Flooding threats

As the storm moves into the Missouri Valley, where many towns remain drenched after last month's record-breaking floods, the risk for additional flooding will increase.

Sometimes, Hydro will turn the power off to melt the ice off the lines. At least that was what I was told in Manitoba when I was sitting in a darkened hotel room by candle light.

My buddy was in Montreal yesterday for work and there was a pretty large snowstorm.
But I suppose it's smart to have some plans in place to protect the grid
I'm not sure if there's any worse place to be without power than a hotel room Chuckle

Several years ago I lived in Colorado Springs and recall snow in May.
I want to say that snow fall in June has happened in Denver as well.
