They say there are three things that really count in the real estate business...
Location, location, location.
The same is true in the world of weather, and Thursday's winter-style storm system is proof of that. The line is fairly sharp between those who woke up Friday morning to snow on the ground and those that were left with more of a sleet/snow/freezing rain mix accumulation. That line basically runs from Columbia, MO to Alton and Litchfiled, IL.
Thanks to our fiends at the National Weather Service forecast office in the St. Louis area for helping to compile the numbers above.
Here are some of the accumulation reports from across the area. Keep in mind that some of these numbers include small amounts of sleet and freezing rain.

Bowling Green, MO: 2.0"
Montgomery City, MO: 1.5"
