Blizzard roars through US's snow-weary midsection

TULSA, Okla. (AP) — A second powerful blizzard in a week roared through parts of the nation's midsection on Wednesday, bringing biting winds and dumping more than a foot of snow on areas still digging out from last week's major storm.

As the system barreled through the Plains toward the Deep South, it blanketed parts of northeastern Oklahoma and northwestern Arkansas under a new layer of snow.

In Tulsa, where mail, bus, and trash pickup service was only recently restored, 5 inches new snow gave it 25.9 inches for the season, breaking its old seasonal record of 25.6 inches set back in 1923-1924. Last week's record 14-inch snowfall kept students out of school for at least six days and made many roads in the state's second-largest city impassable, and garbage pickup had only just resumed.

Dean Guay, 23, was among about two dozen Greyhound bus passengers who spent the night in a Red Cross shelter in Oklahoma's second-largest city after their bus was forced to abort its cross-country trip due to the storm.

"Everything thing was going fine until Oklahoma, then it went crazy," said Guay, who was travelling from New York to California for a job. He said he hopes to make it out West by Saturday.
