Osages and their families are enjoying the winter wonderland that now envelopes the reservation. Schools and the Osage Nation campus is closed until further notice.
Starting around 3 a.m. Tuesday morning, blizzard winds and 20 inches of snow fell throughout the day and didn’t end until around 6 p.m.
In addition to Osage County, neighboring counties included in the blizzard were Pawnee, Washington, Nowata, Rogers and Tulsa.
Single-digit wind chills are threatening the snow’s departure, making it uncertain as to when the schools and campus will be reopening.
