In Leavenworth, only 357 MASL, fell 92 cm / 36 inches of snow and the city is in an emergency regime.
Some areas should receive 48 inches in 48 hours according to /https://www.msn.com/en-us/weather/newsus/national-guard-to-assist-leavenworth-after-a-state-of-emergency-declared/ar-AASxTry?ocid=winp-st/.
