Winter finally came to Columbia today! Last time I checked the weather service, this thundersnow has brought seven to nine inches of snow to the area in a matter of hours. Although it’s been absolutely wonderful to make pancakes, drink hot chocolate and forget about the world for a while, reporting at a time like this is needed on a grand scale.
It’s been impressive today to see how wide the Columbia Missourian staff and readers can reach. Photos and updates have streamed in all day long, keeping the city up to date with road conditions and closings. One of my favorite parts of today has been to see the way social media has been used, and also how I can contribute as a reporter though I’m snowed in at home. Here’s to many more photos of the snow to come!
