Massive Snowstorm Barrels East

Looks like winter has gotten too comfortable to leave—thanks for nothing, Punxsutawney Phil. A massive snowstorm is now headed east after walloping the plains states Thursday, resulting in at least one death. The storm even delivered a few flakes to Tucson, Arizona, with an inch falling in the city and up to six inches falling in the mountains—forcing the PGA to cancel a tour event in the city. In Oklahoma, Cody Alexander, 18, was killed when his car skidded on an interstate due to the slushy mix, while a school bus crashed in northern Arkansas, injuring three students and the driver. A winter-storm warning has been issued from Colorado to Illinois, with as much as several feet expected in some areas.
