Officially, winter is still more than two months away.
It didn’t look that way Saturday morning, however, as snowfall blanketed portions of Nebraska, Iowa and other upper plains states.
Snowfall totals varied in southwest Iowa from a trace to more than four inches. Some areas of Mills County received up to two inches.
Some stretches of central and western Nebraska received more than 15 inches of snow, forcing the closure of Interstate 80 and other state and county highways.
