Understanding the Severity of a Blizzard: 26 Chilly Resources

One year ago, I posted 32 general sites about the weather, including lesson plans, printouts and videos. This morning in my kindergarten classes, we talked about the impending snowstorm, and it was obvious that the kids had no idea what was ahead. Currently a blizzard is on its way towards the northeast part of the country, (I am looking at 2 feet of snow in the next 24 hours...) I wanted to provide adequate resources to explain how this differs from just a snowstorm.
