Heavy snows swept across the Midwest on Thursday, closing schools and grounding flights in multiple states. Some parts of Kansas reported more than 14 inches of snow. As has happened in the past with other extreme weather events, HuffPost readers were there to document the whole thing in photos.

Bev Cress of Topeka told us, "The biggest real damage has been to my diet. I have been making chili, vegetable soup, baked ziti, angel food cake, etc., because we can't get out of the house."

Keep warm and stay safe, everyone!
