Traffic moves steadily along Interstate 70 East and West in St. Charles, Mo. on Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013. Blinding snow, at times accompanied by thunder and lightning, bombarded much of the nation’s midsection Thursday, causing whiteout conditions, making major roadways all but impassable and shutting down schools and state legislatures. Freezing rain and sleet were forecast for southern Missouri, southern Illinois and Arkansas. St. Louis was expected to get all of the above , a treacherous mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain.

I’m flying to Phoenix this morning for a conference sponsored by the Franklin Center.
It will be nice to get away from the St. Louis snow for a couple days.
Blogging will be light this morning.
